Northants travel to Grace Road on Tuesday to face neighbours Leicestershire in the LV= County Championship.

Northants will be hoping to continue their good run of form, following their 10-wicket win over Worcestershire last week. The win further consolidated Northants’ position at the top of the division, as they now have a 44-point buffer over second placed Worcestershire.

Leicestershire are currently bottom of the division, so will want to have a turnaround in form. In their last outing, Leicestershire survived to come away with a draw against Kent at Tunbridge Wells.

With Trent Copeland having gone back to Australia after his very impressive short stint with the club, Lee Daggett comes into the side to join Northants’ potent bowling attack.

Graeme White who has joined the county on loan from Nottinghamshire, also comes into the 13 man squad, which once again will be captained by Alex Wakely in Stephen Peters’ absence.
