Match Details:

Nottinghamshire will take on Leicestershire in the 1st Quarter Final of the T20 Blast at Trent Bridge, Nottingham, on Thursday.

The match will start at 06:00 PM local time (10:30 PM IST). It will be streamed live on Fancode.

Preview:

Going into the knockout stages of the 2020 edition of T20 Blast, Nottinghamshire are one of the favourites to win the title. They have shown excellent consistency and dominance in the group stages. With 7 wins out of 10 games, they topped the table in North Group.

Their quarter-final opposition is fellow North Group team Leicestershire. The Foxes won only 4 of their 10 games, and were indeed lucky to make it through to this stage. However, one of those four wins was against Nottinghamshire, hence it might be a cracker of a contest.


NOT vs LEI Weather Report for Quarterfinal 1:

The sky over Trent Bridge will be cloudy, and there is also a possibility of light drizzle. The temperate is expected to be around 13 °C.

Pitch Condition/Report:

The Trent Bridge pitch is fairly neutral, but the batsmen might be slightly on the better side in terms of support. Anything over 160 should be competitive.
