THE LOWDOWN

Due to local lockdown measures in Leicester, this match has been moved to a neutral venue of New Road, Worcester. Leicestershire finished rock bottom of the County Championship Division Two in 2019, whilst Lancashire bounced straight back up to Division One after winning the Division Two title following relegation in 2018.

THE PREDICTION

The match being played on a neutral ground makes for an interesting backdrop, but even without home advantage Leicestershire were always likely to falter against a Lancashire side superior in all departments. The Red Rose will be raring to go, with their players in good physical and mental condition having been one of only two clubs not to place their players on furloughed leave over the course of the lockdown. Any result other than a comfortable Lancashire victory here would be a huge shock.
