Rishi Patel and Marcus Harris are the players to watch out for Leicestershire in this match.
It’s been a frustrating last week for English domestic Cricket where a lot of matches have been abandoned due to rain. Nottinghamshire was no exception either, as their last fixture against Somerset was called off in the mid-way. They started their tournament campaign well with a convincing 86 runs victory over Warwickshire and lost their second match against Surrey by 33 (D/L Method). They occupy the 5th spot in the standings with 3 points.
Meanwhile, despite a 159-run stand from the openers against Warwickshire, Leicestershire’s middle order crumbled in the run chase of 303 and fell short of the target by 7 runs. This was their 2nd consecutive loss in this tournament. Rishi Patel is in top-notch form and has already scored more than 200 runs.

Welbeck Abbey Cricket Ground is all set to host its 2nd match of the tournament. The first match was called through the halfway mark due to rain. The surface is pretty much helpful for the batters, but they need to be watchful in the initial overs. Anything over 270 is a good score on this wicket.
