The 12th match of the Vitality T20 Blast 2020 is all set to be played between Leicestershire Foxes and Lancashire Lightning at the Grace Road Stadium, Leicester.
This match is scheduled to start at 2:00 PM Local Time (6:30 PM IST) (1:00 PM UTC). This match can be viewed on the Fan Code app in India.
In one of the games that will be played on Saturday in the Vitality T20 Blast, Leicestershire will take on Lancashire. The latter has started the tournament off on a great note. In their first game, they defeated Durham by 27 runs. Their batsmen did a great job and made this victory possible.
Their opponents, Leicestershire, however, couldn’t show off their skills in their first match. That game was abandoned without a ball being bowled due to rain. The team will hope that they get off the mark with this game at least and will look forward to giving a tough fight to Lancashire.
There is a slight chance of precipitation in Leicester in the afternoon. Thus, the proceedings might be interrupted slightly. We might have a shortened game.
It is a good batting deck that is on offer at this venue. With the rain threat looming around and considering the recent games, batting second would be ideal.
