Nottinghamshire: Alex Hales will be a top pick for this match. The 33-year-old has been the lone bright spark in Nottingham’s disappointing campaign so far with 223 runs across nine innings at a whopping strike rate of 214. Hales will need to be at his best if Nottingham are to end their losing streak against Leicestershire.
Leicestershire: Naveen-ul-Haq will be a no-brainer for this contest. The Afghanistan seamer is currently the leading wicket-taker in the tournament with 19 wickets in 11 matches at an economy of 7.87. The 22-year-old ended with 2/21 against Nottingham in the reverse fixture and will look to repeat his heroics once again.
Nottinghamshire vs Leicestershire Vitality T20 Blast 2022 prediction
Leicestershire come into this fixture with back-to-back wins against Durham and Worcestershire. They will fancy their chances against Nottingham who are coming off heavy defeats against Warwickshire and Lancashire respectively.
However, Nottingham won the reverse fixture earlier in the tournament and will hope to snap their losing streak against Leicester.
