LEI vs LAN Dream11 Team: Leicestershire Foxes and Lancashire Lightning get their English T20 Blast campaign underway from North Zone today.
With the cricket continuing in England, we have two new teams beginning their life in the 2019 edition of the Vitality Blast today. From North Zone, Leicestershire Foxes and Lancashire Lightning will be squaring off against each other as either looks to begin their sojourn with a win under their kitty.
If day one of the frontier league taught us anything, it was that this instalment of the Vitality Blast is going to be more competitive and closely fought than anyother. With a slew of international wordclass players being indulged in by teams, coupled with some of the biggest names from the domestic circuit, the matches are bound to regale us in a resounding brand of cricket.
And the opening day was all about that as people turned out in large numbers despite the Cricket World Cup having just gone by a few days back. Their expectations of exceptional cricket were fulfilled as well with the three matches on the day delivering fascinating matches, one which are set to continue on day 2 which sees 7 matches in play.
And among one of them is this clash, an encounter between two unknown entities till now. While Lancashire are coming into the match with an emphatic win over Sussex in the County Championship Division 2, Leicestershire were on the other side of a drubbing by Gloucestershire.
Based on that performance and the recent showings by the two sides, we see Lancashire emerging from this match with the two points in their kitty. They are by far the sturdier of batting units and with the shortest format of the game always tilting the scales in favour of the side with runs on the scoreboard, we see Lancashire winning it on that basis.
Wicket-Keeper for LEI vs LAN Dream11
Lancashire Lightning’s captain and wicket-keeper is our first pick for this match given how astute a batsman he is. Dane Vilas loves to bat in only one, opening his arms right from ball one to stamp his authority on the match and in the absence of Jos Buttler will be one of the most important batsman for his side.
Batters for LEI vs LAN Dream11
The exodus of players from the opening exchanges of the league owing to the CWC has affected Lancashire the most out of the 18 partaking teams. They have lost a plethora of star performers but what serves them well is an incredible pool of exceptional performers from the domestic arena who they’ll be banking on today.
We have opted for a trivalent from their batting unit with us envisioning Lancashire putting on a hefty score in this one. Coming in from the side are Rob Jones, Keaton Jennings and Alex Davies, three players who in unison have been responsible for the ascendancy the side finds itself in.
Elsewhere from Leicestershire we have their opener Hassan Azad and Paul Horton make an entry into our side.
All-Rounders for LEI vs LAN Dream11
With Glenn Maxwell, James Faulkner and James Anderson all out of action for Lancashire in this fixture, expect their all-rounders to get a good quota of overs to come in and dole out their stuff in the middle. It’s this proposition paired with his ability to contribute with the bat as well which sees us go with Steven Croft from the side.
From the opposition we have the lone selection of Callum Parkinson make an entry into our playing 11.
Bowling Order for LEI vs LAN Dream11
The one area which has massively pushed back Leicestershire from truly succeeding and making strides in the ranks has been their batting department. And with no new names included in it, we see their predicament to continue against a Lancashire bowling setup which has caused massive problems to sides in recent time.
Pacers Graham Onions and Matt Parkinson both come in for us to form a deadly partnership, two names we see getting us a rich haul of wickets. From Leicestershire we have a wordclass name being imbedded in our outfit as well in the form of Chris Wright, their most dependable and consistent performer.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Rob Jones is our captain for this one while Vilas has been selected to represent us on the vice-captain’s front.
