Derbyshire takes on the Leicestershire Foxes to start their T20 Blast 2020 campaign. This promises to be an exciting match between two teams that have a pretty strong batting lineup. Derbyshire managed to make it to the Finals Day for the first time ever and Leicestershire Foxes have been three-times winners of the T20 Blast.
Which one of these sides is going to be able to build on some impressive past claims and start their 2020 challenge with a win? Let’s find out.
Derbyshire vs Leicestershire T20 Blast 2020 is going to be played at Grace Road, Leicester on the 27th of August 2020.
Derbyshire did very well last season and still has the core of that side to help it mount another challenge. The biggest strength of Derbyshire is going to be its batting. Wayne Madsen and Billy Godleman both scored over 450 runs in the 2019 season.
They are going to be leading the batting for Derbyshire once more.
With Luis Reece and Leus de Plooy expected to be in the starting eleven as well, Derbyshire could have a seriously strong T20 lineup. Alex Hughes, Harvey Hosein, and Matt Critchley add some very good depth to the middle order as well.
The bowling is a bit of an issue. Ravi Rampaul has been instrumental for Derbyshire in recent years and led the wicket-taking stats last season in the T20 Blast as well. He is probably going to be absent for most of the tournament because of VOCID-19 travel restrictions.
Michael Cohen, Anuj Dal, and Ben Aitchison are going to lead the bowling attack in his absence. This is an attack that can be put under pressure.

The Foxes are a dangerous T20 team that underperformed their potential last season. They have Paul Nixon as a coach this season to help them turn around things and we all know that he has plenty of experience in helping teams do that.
The most important players for Leicestershire this season are going to be Colin Ackerman and Aaron Lilley. They are both attacking batsmen that can clear the boundaries with ease and have a proven record to their names.
Delany and Dearden are going to be a part of the middle-order which is looking a bit thin everything considered.
The Fixes have a strong bowling attack, though, led by Callum Parkinson and supported by Colin Ackerman and Aaron Lilley as well.
Deiter Klein and Chris Wright were pretty expensive in the previous edition of the T20 Blast and the Foxes have to hope that they will come back stronger this year.
There is a lot of potential in this team but a lot will depend on the form of Clin Ackerman and Aaron Lilley.

The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first.

There is a bit of rain forecast for match day in Leicester but hopefully it stays away during the time the match is going to be played. As a ground, Grcae Road is very good for the batsmen. A flat pitch with small boundaries lies in store and we think a score of about 170 is about par batting first.
