Round three of the Virtual County Championship between Leicestershire and Glamorgan is being held by Cricket World and Dice Cricket to help the fans stay tuned to cricketing action from the comforts of their home amid the Covid-19 outbreak.

Leicestershire have played two matches and tasted success in both of the games as they have climbed to the top of the Virtual county Championship 2020 points table. The team kicked off their campaign with a victory over Nottinghamshire and registered another win against Derbyshire in their next match.

They will be up against Glamorgan who lost their only game in the virtual County Championship till now and are placed right the bottom with just two points after they suffered a loss in their round 1 match against Middlesex at Sophia Gardens.

The pitch for this match at Grace Road is expected to be a green one and thus it would be a match to cherish for the bowlers.

Apart from Marnus Labuschagne, who remains a star player for Glamorgan, David Lloyd, Kiran Carlson and Chris Cooke are expected to be among the runs.

With the ball, Marchant de Lange, Timm Van der Gugten and Michael Hogan are likely to find success on a pitch that will suit them.

For Leicestershire, the onus would be on Hassan Azad who was the only bright light for them in the last season. Colin Ackerman is another player with decent ability who has underperformed in recent times.

Chris Wright has been in good rhythm for Leicestershire in the last two matches and it would be no surprise if he continues to be the leading bowler for the team.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

Leicestershire - Hassan Azad, Paul Horton, Harry Dearden, Mark Cosgrove, Colin Ackerman, Lewis Hill, Tom Taylor, Klein, Dieter Mike, Chris Wright, Will Davis

Glamorgan- Nick Selman, Charlie Humphrey, Marnus Labuschagne, David Lloyd, Billy Root, Kiran Carlson, Chris Cooke, Graham Wagg, Marchant de Lange, Timm Van der Gugten, Michael Hogan
