Date & Time: Friday, September 11, 23:00 IST
Venue: Grace Road, Leicester, England
Here comes the clash between two equal weights. Both teams have been brilliant in the season so far and walking in the same direction with same numbers in their kitty. With the likes of Adam Lyth, Dawid Willey and Colin Ackermann taking part in the game, it is expected to be a cracker of the contest at Leicester tonight.
Yorkshire will rely on Adam Lyth, who has been pretty consistent in the tournament while Dawid Willey and Cadmore will further make things easy for Yorkshire. On the other hand, Leicestershire are heavily dependent on the performance of Colin Ackermann and the bowling department. Looking at both strengths and weaknesses, it seems like we are in for a thriller tonight.
Adam Lyth, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Ben Coad, Harry Brook, Will Fraine, Jonathan Tattersall (wk), David Willey (c), Jordan Thompson, Matthew Fisher, Mathew Pillans, Josh Poysden
Harry Dearden, Gareth Delany, Arron Lilley, Colin Ackermann (c), George Rhodes, Lewis Hill (wk), Tom Taylor, Ben Mike, Will Davis, Gavin Griffiths, Callum Parkinson
The pitch at Leicester has always be sportive, giving assistance to all types of players. Batsmen need to be on top of their game while spinners and fast bowlers have to be on their mark to deliver for their respective teams. All in all, a good contest between the bat and the ball is expected tonight.
Lyth has been superb in the tournament so far. Both with the bat and ball, Lyth has been delivering on a constant basis. We expect him to come up with another match-winning performance, especially, after looking at his incredible numbers in the tour so far.
Willey has PPM of 63 in this tournament across the seasons. It shows his capability to make things happen and his consistency in this format of the game. We expect him to deliver again, especially, in absence of Jo Root.
Delany has been pretty good for Leicestershire so far. He is opening innings with the bat and later, rolling his arms to pick wickets for the team. He has got PPM of 102 in this season, which shows his caliber.
Ackermann, surprisingly, failed in this season but he has always been their match-winner. Both with the bat and ball, Colin has delivered for them in the past. With season heading to its business end, we expect him to come good.
Taylor is our notable miss for this game. He is batting in the middle-order and also bowling brilliantly but there is no chance to go with him, as other four all-rounders are having better stats and responsibilities than him.
