NOR vs LEI: Royal London One-Day Cup: Preview
Northamptonshire is no longer in the running to make the playoffs of the Royal London ODI Cup 2021 season. On paper, its batting lineup is not bad at all but in reality it has completely failed. There middle was competent enough but still they have just not been good enough to won consistently. The side lost the last game against Nottinghamshire by 2 wickets in a low scoring contest.
Leicestershire is very much in the race. The table is such that teams are very closely stacked together and Leicestershire could find itself in the playoffs if it wins this last match by a healthy margin. Leicestershire’s bowlers haven’t done well and it would be interesting to see how they do in this game.

NOR vs LEI: Royal London One-Day Cup: Match Prediction
It has been a miserable campaign for Northamptonshire, and they would be playing without any context in this game. Their batsmen have been in poor form and haven’t scored too many runs this season. Leicestershire on the other hand have done well in recent games and they come here after a big run chase. This would make them favourites to win here.
