Round four of the Virtual County Championship between Sussex and Leicestershire 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 been right on the point in the ongoing season of the virtual County Championship with two wins and one loss from three matches. The team is placed right at the top of the division 2 points table with 47 points.

They will be up against Sussex who are placed at the fifth spot in the pile with one win and one loss from 2 games. The team has only 27 points and registered a 5-wicket win in their round 3 match against Worcestershire.

David Wiese and Tom Haines were there top run-scorers for Sussex. Wiese also picked up three wickets in the first innings while Ollie Robinson claimed figures of 6 for 90 in the last essay.

Leicestershire lost their last game against Glamorgan by 26 runs but Dieter Mike scored an unbeaten century in the the first innings while Chris Wright and Colin Ackerman did the job for them with the ball.

For Sussex, the responsibility will be on the shoulders of Philip Salt and Tom Haines to give the team a good start so that the likes of Harry Finch can play their natural game in the middle order. Chris Jordan and Jofra Archer, along with David Wiese, will be their top options with the ball.

Hassan Azad will be Leicestershire's biggest hope with the bat. They would expect the opener to build on his impressive form in the last season. Chris Wright and Will Davis will share their bowling responsibility.

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

Sussex - Philip Salt, Tom Haines, Luke Wells, Stiaan van Zyl, Harry Finch, Ben Brown, David Wiese, Chris Jordan, Jofra Archer, Ollie Robinson, George Garton

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