LEICESTERSHIRE FOXES VS NORTHAMPTONSHIRE LIVE STREAM COUNTY CHAMPIONSHIP 2017 – On 25th September 2017, Specsavers County Championship match would be played between Leicestershire vs Northamptonshire at Grace Road, Leicester and the match begins at 10.30AM. The game of 20 overs is more enjoyed as compared to the test version of the game in which the game completes in 5 days. A 50 over game is not that much hectic one it just completes in a day and the rules are simple as given by the ICC rulebook, though the run chase is not quite fluctuating, as it is in T20. Hence it won’t be wrong that though ODI is not that much popular as are the T20, but they test the real class of a batsman, of a bowler along with the class of a team in all.
The Nottingham outlaws are contesting with a group of nine in this year’s competition, with Worcestshire, Derbyshire Falcons, Warwickshire bears, Leicestshire Foxes, Durham, Lancshire lightning, Yorkshire Vikings and Northamptonshire Steelbacks competing with the outlaws for the latter stages of the competition.
The tournament will consist of league matches which will decide the top 4 qualifiers for playoffs. Games in playoff will decide about the finalist teams which will finally bring out the champion team.
The tournament ends in the grand occasion of a final at the spiritual, traditional and fantabulous home of the world of cricket, Lord’s.
It’s a dream for every county cricketer to get there, something the outlaws last achieved in 2013, so the game is certainly going to be watched in hike by the English.
Performance Analysis of Both Teams
Foxes have won T20 Competition three times and reached two semi-finals Since the competition was launched in the UK in 2003. Clint McKay (Australian seamer), who is Foxes captain has fighting spirit and vast experience of the game’s shortest format having played in the IPL for the Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad, as well as the Big Bash in his native Australia for Melbourne Stars and the Sydney Thunder. In group stage match he took 22 wickets. Example has been set by McKay for this season, and expect him to do the same in this game also.

Leicestershire Foxes vs Northamptonshire Match Prediction
Leicestershire will have advantage to gain confidence from the fact that they have beaten Northamptonshire in what has been their only encounter against them in the history of the NatWest T20 Blast tournament. That happened to be a semi-final game at Birmingham on the finals day of the 2004 season which Leicestershire ended up winning by 21 runs. For this season, Leicestershire have not been as consistent as Northamptonshire; they won their first four games on the bounce, then went winless in their next six before winning the final four group games. Northamptonshire have been a consistent performer throughout the season and the home advantage certainly tip the scales in their favor. We therefore predict Northamptonshire to win this match and book their place in the semis.
