English T20 Blast, 2018
Leicestershire vs Worcestershire, North Group Game
Grace Road, Leicester Aug 10 at 11:00 PM IST Local
Worcestershire Rapids have been in phenomenal form and now they have got their eyes on the top spot with another win. They travel to Leicestershire Foxes’ home, the team which is classified as eight in the North Group of English T20 Blast.
Leicestershire have been plagued by inconsistent performances. The team has good players within the squad, but the management can’t point out why they aren’t as high as they should be. Captain Colin Ackerman has been in good form, but the lack of support he getting from his teammates is palpable. Some big and difficult decisions need to be taken by the people behind this team if they want to improve.
On the other hand, their opponents Worcestershire couldn’t be in a better place. The last game saw them win the game by 72 runs, and it was one of the most complete performances by a team in this tournament. Every single player contributed for the win, especially Callum Ferguson who blasted 102 runs in 56 balls. The team has decent momentum behind them to top the group and will be gunning to take this opportunity with both hands.
