derby vs leic Match Prediction & Analysis

Derbyshire will face Leicestershire in the North Group fixture of the Vitality T20 Blast in Derby on Tuesday.

The game is a must-win for the home team as they are currently placed in the seventh position on the points table with just four points after seven matches played.

Therefore, the team management will be hoping that the players will turn it around in the next match and secure a positive result.

On the other hand, the visitors are in no better position as well as they are currently eighth-placed on the points table with just two points and the coaching staff will be hoping for a positive turn around on Tuesday.

Teams Preview

Derbyshire Preview

After suffering back-to-back defeats, Derbyshire’s team management might opt to make some notable changes in the starting XI for their next match.

The coaching staff will be particularly concerned about the batting department’s performance in the previous match against Yorkshire where the team were dismissed for just 135 while chasing a target of 175.

The form of captain Billy Godleman will be of great concern for the management as the 32-year-old has only managed to score 35 runs in seven innings at a disappointing average of just five.

On the batting front, the team will be relying on the likes of opener Luis Reece, left-handed batsman Leus du Plooy and right-hander Matt Critchley to score the bulk of the runs and give something to the bowlers to defend.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of right-arm pacers Logan van Beek, Fynn Hudson-Prentice and leggie Critchley to produce timely breakthroughs.

Derbyshire Predicted Playing XI:

Luis Reece, Harry Came, Billy Godleman (c), Leus du Plooy, Matthew Critchley, Fynn Hudson-Prentice, Brooke Guest (wk), Alex Thomson, Logan van Beek, Conor McKerr, George Scrimshaw

Leicestershire Preview

After registering their maiden win of the campaign in the previous match against Northamptonshire, Leicestershire’s team management are unlikely to make too many changes in the playing XI for their match against Derbyshire.

In the batting department, the team will be relying on the likes of last match’s centurion wicketkeeper-batsman Josh Inglis, captain Colin Ackermann, opener Scott Steel and middle-order batsman Rishi Patel to score the bulk of the runs in this contest.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of Afghanistan’s right-arm pacer Naveen-ul-Haq, right-arm fast-bowler Gavin Griffiths, skipper Ackermann and left-arm spinner Callum Parkinson to produce timely breakthroughs.

Leicestershire Predicted Playing XI:

Josh Inglis (wk), Scott Steel, Arron Lilley, Colin Ackermann (c), Lewis Hill, Rishi Patel, Louis Kimber, Ben Mike, Callum Parkinson, Naveen-ul-Haq, Gavin Griffiths

Weather Conditions

With sunny intervals expected during the game, the surface will offer something for the pacers with the new-ball. The batsmwn will be lookiing to go after the bowlers in the Powerplay overs.

Venue Details

Both teams have faced each other on 32 occasions in the history of the competition where Leicestershire have a better record with 18 wins compared to just 12 victories by Derbyshire whereas two matches ended with no result.

However, in the last five matches between the teams, Leicestershire have only managed to win once whereas Derbyshire emerged victorious on three occasions.

Toss: To Bowl

The side that wins the toss, would be looking to bowl first and restrict the opposition team to less than 145 runs. The previous three T20 Blast matches have been won by sides batting second.

DERBY vs LEIC Winning Prediction

Both teams are coming in this fixture in a must-win situation and therefore, it is extremely hard to predict a winner.

However, looking at the strengths of both teams on the paper, Leicestershire looks like a far-settled unit.

Therefore, looking at the team’s strength coupled with the fact that Derbyshire have suffered three consecutive defeats at the same venue where Tuesday’s match will be played, the prediction is for the Ackermann-led unit to secure a much-needed win and keep their tournament hopes alive.

Expect Leicestershire to beat Derbyshire and stay afloat in the T20 Blast competition.
