Derbyshire Team News & Playing 11

DER Team News

After posting 162/7 on Thursday evening against Northamptonshire Steelbacks, Derbyshire Falcons were unable to defend the total and lost off the last ball. This game gives them an opportunity to bounce back immediately and they will be looking for their fifth successive win over Leicestershire Foxes.

DER Team Batting

David Lloyd top scored for Derbyshire Falcons against the Steelbacks and there were also useful contributions at the top of the order from Luis Reece and Wayne Madsen. Captain Samit Patel and Ross Whiteley are more than capable middle-order batters who we expect to make scores in this match.

DER Team Bowling

The five wickets taken by Derbyshire Falcons were shared between only two bowlers with opener Zak Chappell taking 2/29 and Pat Brown continuing his good record in the format with 3/33. We can expect Blair Tickner to bowl with good pace in this clash.

Derbyshire Falcons nearly got off to a winning start on Thursday but came up just too short.

After patiently waiting whilst others played on Thursday evening, Leicester Foxes got their campaign underway on Friday evening and defeated Yorkshire Vikings away by 7 wickets. They need only one more win this season to match last year’s victory tally of just two!

LEI Team Batting

With a target of 152, Leicestershire Foxes made easy work in front of a passionate Yorkshire supporter base and got over the line with 35 balls remaining. That will give the batting line-up plenty of self-belief to carry into this game at Edgbaston on Saturday.

LEI Team Bowling

Bowling first on Friday, Leicestershire Foxes did an excellent job of restricting a very strong Yorkshire Vikings batting line up to 151/7. Josh Hull and Ben Mike will both some into this game with a lot of confidence after excellent showings at Headingley.

Leicestershire Foxes produced a fine performance in Leeds to get off to a winning start on Friday evening.

🏆 Derbyshire vs Leicestershire Prediction

This has all the ingredients of an excellent contest as Derbyshire Falcons will feel that they were unfortunate to miss out on a win on Thursday whereas Leicestershire will want to back up their victory on Friday to prove that they are already a completely different side to 2023. We expect a close fixture but are backing Derbyshire Falcons, who we think have a better bowling attack, to win.
