Derbyshire have their task cut out as they face table-toppers Lancashire in their next match. They have already been beaten by Lancashire once this season and would need to bring out their best to bring the in-form team down. Derbyshire are currently 4th in the North Group with 14 points and a net run rate of +0.088. The two teams above them – Nottinghamshire and Birmingham Bears – both have 14 points each as well. A win against Lancashire, who have 16 points, can take them to second place.
Derbyshire have messed up their chances for qualification a bit after suffering a massive 94-run loss against Nottinghamshire in their last game. They ended up conceding 247 runs after asking Nottinghamshire to bat first and could only manage 153-9 in response.
Derbyshire would again look to captain Shan Masood to deliver. The opening batter has been their leading run-getter this season with 441 at a strike rate of 140.89. Leus du Plooy (336 runs at 152.03) and Wayne Madsen (315 runs at 152.17) are the other two batters to watch out for.
Derbyshire’s leading wicket-taker this season has been George Scrimshaw who has 19 scalps at 9.11. The medium pacer conceded 62 runs off his 4 overs in the last match and would like to have a better game this time. Leg-spinner Mattie McKiernan (13 wickets at 7.86) has been consistently good and the team will rely on him and left-arm spinner Mark Watt (12 wickets at 8.30) again in the middle overs.

Lancashire have only lost 2 matches this season and would like to continue their winning momentum. They are sitting comfortably at the No.1 position with 16 points in 11 games at a net run rate of +0.712. Their last match against Durham was abandoned but before that game, they registered a thumping 6-wicket win against Nottinghamshire.
The stars of Lancashire’s batting this season have been Steven Croft (374 runs at 128.08), Tim David (322 runs at 182.95), and skipper Dane Vilas (255 runs at 153.61). With these three going great guns, it will be difficult for the opposition bowlers to stop Lancashire.
Richard Gleeson has been the team’s highest wicket-taker this year with 17 scalps at an economy of 7.69. He’s formed a great partnership with left-arm spinner Tom Hartley at the start who has 12 wickets at 8.06. Leg-spinner Matthew Parkinson has picked up 7 wickets and managed to keep things tight with an economy of just 7.64.

The pitch at the County Ground has been really good for batting this season and has stayed through throughout the 40 overs. Seamers will get some help early on but batters will have a great time.
Some showers are expected in Derby today and we might have a rain-affected game.
Totals over 180 have been scored 7 times in 4 matches at the County Ground this season with the highest being 200-6 by Birmingham Bears. If we get a full game, the team batting first will target a total of around 190-plus runs.
3 of the 4 matches played at the County Ground in Derby this year have been won by the side chasing. Expect the team winning the toss to bat second here.
Lancashire have won all the last 5 matches they have played against Derbyshire, including one this season. They are at the top of the table and have got most bases covered. Derbyshire have been good but depend too much on a couple of individual batters to get the job done. Expect Lancashire to dominate this game.
