LLG vs MUR Head-to-Head
In their previous eight T20 meetings, Leinster Lightning have had a huge advantage winning six out of eight, leaving the Knights with a stand-alone win. One match was abandoned.
Leinster Lightning have been dominating the Reds in every season of the T20 Championship and would be looking forward to keeping it that way in their upcoming encounter.
In their most recent encounter, Leinster won the match by seven wickets and 20 balls to spare.
With the winning percentage being below 50 for teams batting first, it clearly indicates teams choosing to bowl first. This venue has brought a lot of success to the pacers and will provide them with good swing and bounce.
With 100% chances of precipitation and windy weather on match day, there is a high possibility of heavy downpours and interruptions due to rain.
