LEI vs YOR Dream11 Team: Winless after their opening fixtures, Leicestershire Foxes and Yorkshire Vikings turn to each other in the pursuit of success
After both their opening matches in the Vitality Blast were abandoned due to rain’s intervention, Leicestershire Foxes and Yorkshire Vikings endured horrid times in their first encounters in the frontier league. Both the sides were condemned to defeats, leaving them at just the solitary point after two matches in the domestic T20 league.
While Yorkshire Vikings still put up a brave fight, taking their match all the way to the last over, Leicestershire Foxes were cleaned apart by Birmingham Bears. Scraping to a woeful 115-9 while batting first, Leicestershire’s diabolic showing with the bat meant that their match was long over before they came out to defend their total. It took the Bears a total of 15 overs to cruise to a win with 7 wickets to spare, massively exposing the lopsided nature of their opponents’ batting order.
On the other hand, although Yorkshire ended up failing to defend their 164, the side will not be too dejected by the defeat. It was a solid batting performance in the absence of their key names like Jos Buttler and Glen Maxwell, one complimented perfectly by a resolute bowling show that ensured their side was always in the match before Derbyshire eventually won by 5 wickets.
Up against each other today as the marquee T20 league resumes its action for the first time this week, both the sides will be looking to register their first win of their sojourn today. Registering their first points on the scoreboard is of paramount importance to the side and expect this to be a closely contested and tight affair, one where neither side spares no expense in cleaning apart the other side on the day.
Given the way their previous matches shaped up, we have to side with Yorkshire Vikings for this match. Leicestershire made for horrendous showing, being completely dominated by the Bears who were relentless in making light work of a side that showed no stomach for the fight.
This should be a relatively high scoring encounter, one where Yorkshire’s batting order will prevail to take their side to a befitting win on the night.
Wicket-Keepers for LEI vs YOR Dream11
Scoring 39 off 31 balls at a time when his side were sitting on 50-4, Yorkshire’s Jonathan Tattersall impressed us with not only his technique with the application and patience he showed to craft out an innings of note and hold fort from one end for his side.
We are also picking up Nicholas Pooran from the side despite him failing to be amongst the runs in his first match of the league. The West Indian showed for MI and West Indies that he’s more than adept in coming out and opening his arms in the death overs and we see him putting on a strong showing today.
Batters for LEI vs YOR Dream11
Opener Adam Lyth from Yorkshire is our first pick in this segment given the exuberant way in which he comes out and plays right from ball one. The opener is revered for his fearless brand of cricket, one that sees him find the fence at a strong rate to help his side make full use of the powerplay.
We are partnering him up with fellow opener and captain Tom Kohler Cadmore for this fixture with us seeing Yorkshire putting on a hefty score today, one which will be courtesy of the strong platform supplied by these two to the side. Number 4 bat, Harry Dearden from Leicestershire wraps up our Dream 11 outfit of the day.
All-Rounders for LEI vs YOR Dream11
A half-century along with a wicket in his last encounter mean Jordan Thompson was the first player on our minds when we started constructing one of the most important department of our side. The was quissential to his side’s cause the last time around, emerging as their finest player and given the key role he holds in the side, we see hi becoming a reason for our success today.
The ever reliable David Willey is going to accompany him today while Colin Ackermann, captain of Leicestershire becomes the lone pick from their side.
Bowling Order for LEI vs YOR Dream11
Pace duo of Dieter Klein and Chris Wright have been indulged by up for this match from Leicestershire with this partnership key to their outfit’s outing today. With the batting making for such a bleak viewing, the bowlers have to rise to the occasion from the side and help make things jittery for Yorkshire today.
From Yorkshire we have gone ahead with only Josh Poysden after having compensated for their bowlers in the previous department.
Captain And Vice-Captain
After heavy deliberations, David Wiley has been chosen as our captain with Jordan Thompson our vice-captain.
