LEI Team News
There were no changes for Leicestershire ahead of their first victory of the campaign and it would be a big surprise if they were to leave any players out after their 7 wicket win. No injuries have been reported after Sunday’s victory.
LEI Key Players
- Colin Ackermann - The right-handed middle order batter always plays in a positive manner. He has experience in the Men’s Hundred and in the Bangladesh Premier League.
- Josh Hull - The 18 year old left-arm pace bowler was playing in only his second T20 match on Sunday but picked up three wickets in total including both Durham openers in one over.
- Naseem Shah - The Pakistan right-arm pace bowler had to wait until the 19th over to pick up a wicket in the last game. However, his speed will always cause batters problems.
LEI Team Form
The Foxes were beaten in their first five matches of the Vitality T20 Blast 2023 but now have a chance to make it two wins in a row in this game.

After turning their form and their season around, we anticipate that Yorkshire will be unchanged ahead of this match against Leicestershire. Although none of Yorkshire’s England red-ball internationals will be available, there are no injuries in the squad.

- David Wiese - The Namibian pace bowler got the big wicket of Wayne Madsen in the last match and has gone wicketless in only one game in the T20 Blast so far.
