Match Preview :
The 5th clash of Vitality T20 Blast & 3rd clash of North Group, Leicestershire will take on Durham at the Grace Road (Leicester) starting at 18:30 local time (11:00 PM IST) on Thursday, May 26th.
These two teams met last year in T20 Blast-2021, Where Leicestershire defeated Durham by 8 wickets in a rain affected match. If we will talk about the last session, Leicestershire picked up 6 wins across their North Group fixtures and that was not sufficient to qualify for Super-8 and finished with the 6th spot on Point tables. On the other side, Durham picked up only 5 wins across their North Group fixtures and finished with 3rd spot from the bottom. Both teams will try to forget last season and will now look to start on a positive note and make it to the top eight this season.
If will look at past record then Durham is a bit looking stronger than Leicestershire on the paper but Durham will miss the services of Mark Wood(injury issues), Alex Lees(National duty), and Ben Stokes(National duty), So both teams will try to start with victory in the opening match of them.
