Foxes Vitality Blast Campaign Starts and Ends Against Lightning
Leicestershire Foxes will start and end their 2019 Vitality Blast campaign with mouthwatering matches against Lancashire Lightning.
The Red Rose county are in town on Friday, July 19 with the return match on Friday, August 30 at Emirates Old Trafford.
Four of the club’s Vitality Blast home games are on Friday evenings, and there is also a Sunday afternoon match, which proved popular in 2018.
Other eye-catching fixtures include an East Midlands double header home weekend against Notts Outlaws (Friday, August 23) and Derbyshire Falcons (Sunday, August 25).
The Foxes also entertain Yorkshire Vikings, Durham Jets, Birmingham Bears and Northants Steelbacks at the Fischer County Ground.
“It’s an attractive fixture list as we have plenty of Friday night games in Vitality Blast and one on a Sunday afternoon,” said Leicestershire CCC Chief Executive Wasim Khan MBE.
“To go alongside that, the majority of Royal London One-Day Cup matches are at the weekend or on a Bank Holiday. We would love some big crowds to cheer us on for our white ball fixtures in 2019.”
Leicestershire CCC Head Coach Paul Nixon said: “The T20 starts and ends against Lancashire, which are always great games, we’ve had some good battles over the years.
“I think the fact that there are distinct blocks of games in the three competitions, including T20, will help planning and preparation for the summer. It will be an exciting 2019 season for the Foxes.”
