Leicestershire has had a disastrous outing in the 2019 T20 Blast. The Colin Ackermann-captained team is the current cellar dwellers in the points table of the North Ground. Their Net Run Rate of -2.741 also suggests their everlasting travails in the T20 championship. After ceasing their three-match losing streak, the team defeated Nottinghamshire by 21 runs in a rain-curtailed encounter.

However, the eight-wicket loss to Durham meant that Leicestershire couldn’t make their way up from the bottom. Their next contest is versus Worcestershire, who has the chance of toppling Lancashire to the top. Barring their 21-run defeat to Lancashire, Callum Ferguson & Co haven’t faced much trouble. Having won their last three games, Worcestershire is looking in good shape.

The North Group game in the Vitality T20 Blast 2019 will be played between Worcestershire and Leicestershire at the New Road in Worcester.
