Pitch Report :
The pitch at Leicester are expected to be good for batting. The outfield will be blazing fast and the surface absolutely flat. This will allow the teams to target big totals although neither team’s batting has been successful at doing that so far. We think 170-180 should be seen as par for the surface.
Leicestershire will win
