Warwickshire will square off against Leicestershire on Thursday in the 33rd match of the Vitality T20 Blast 2022 at Edgbaston in Birmingham in a North Group fixture.
Warwickshire are unbeaten in the competition, having won all three of their matches so far. They beat Durham in their last game and will look to carry forward their winning momentum into the upcoming clash.

Leicestershire, on the other hand, have played four games so far, managing only a single win. They beat Yorkshire but failed to continue the run against Northamptonshire in their fourth game.
Batting first, Northamptonshire posted a mammoth 227 on the board. The Leicestershire batters then tried hard but were restricted to 185 as they lost the game by 42 runs.
