Leicestershire is going to be playing its second Vitality T20 Blast 2021 match in as many days for a hectic start to the campaign. Matches come pretty quickly in the T20 Blast and a lot of teams will be playing on consecutive days.
Derbyshire played its first match against Lancashire, a contest that it ended up losing pretty comprehensively. Can it change things around against the Foxes?
We will be looking at the strengths and weaknesses of the two teams and trying to find suitable cricket betting markets for our readers.
Match prediction and betting tips for Leicestershire vs Derbyshire. The match is going to be played at Grace Road, Leicester on the 11th of June 2021.
Leicestershire is a small county that has never really dominated white-ball cricket (especially T20) in the past. It has only been to the knockout stage of the T20 BLast twice but never won it. You will also not find some of the big names that are present in the other counties.
This does not mean it is a weak team by any means, though.
Aaron Lilley, Colin Ackerman, and Josh Inglis form the heart of the batting lineup. Lilley has a career strike rate of over 150 and can strike the ball very cleanly. With Harry Deardon and Harry Swindells also making a good impression in the previous edition of the T20 Blast, there is a lot of batting depth to call upon.
Among the bowlers, Callum Parkinson and Colin Ackerman are very effective at picking up wickets and putting pressure on the opposition. The same kind of quality is not present in the pace bowling department, though.
Will Davis, Naveen-ul-Haq, and Gavin Griffith are developing bowlers that can be put under pressure.

Derbyshire batting first against Lancashire and could only manage 168. The T20 Blast is a very high-scoring tournament where most of the pitches are flat and the grounds are not very large either.
Louis Reece was the only batsman who was able to impose himself. He made 59 with the help of five boundaries and three hits over the fence. There is a lot of experience in the form of Godleman, de Plooy, and Madsen but these players have not been performing for quite a while now.
Will Madsen retired hurt in the previous match and did not bowl. There is a very good chance that is going to be unavailable for this match.
Derbyshire was the worst team of the T20 Blast in 2020 and it does not look like it has made the improvements necessary to compete in 2021 either. The frontline bowlers for Derbyshire were poor and whatever wickets were picked up came along through mistakes made by the batsmen, not anything special by the bowlers.
Luis Reece, Harry Came, Billy Godleman, A Leus du Plooy, AL Hughes, MJJ Critchley, Fynn Hudson Prentice, Brooke Guest, Alex Thomson, Logan van Beek, Michael Cohen.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. Chasing has been the preferred strategy for teams of the T20 Blast and the same can be expected this time around.

A cloudy and humid day has been forecast for match day in Leicester but there is not too much chance of rain. Another flat wicket with plenty of runs should be on offer. This means that the bowlers from both sides are going to have to work hard and teams with batting power could benefit.
A score of around 170 should be seen as par.
We are going to back Leicestershire to win this match. They have a better batting lineup with more depth and some dynamic young players. Their bowling is not too special but we don’t necessarily see Derbyshire being able to take a lot of advantage of that.
Bet on Leicestershire to win.
