LEI vs DER Match & Analysis

Neither of the team playing this next T20 Blast 2020 match is what we consider to be particularly strong or in good form. Leicestershire has two wins from four completed matches while Derbyshire has lost all five matches that have had a result. A large number of no-results in this group mean that the teams are still pretty closely packed together.

Derbyshire will be desperate to get its first victory in this season of the Blast. Will the Leicestershire Foxes be the first team to give up any points to Derbyshire?

Leicestershire vs Derbyshire T20 Blast 2020 is going to be played at Grace Road, Leicester on the 15th of September 2020.

LEI vs DER Team Previews


Leicestershire has struggled with its batting this entire season of the Blast so far. Aaron Lilley has 192 runs to his name, Gareth Delany has 162, and no one else has over a 100. That is very poor in comparison to the numbers that some of the other teams are putting up.

The lack of runs from Colin Ackerman is hurting Leicestershire. They need to be very careful in this contest against Derbyshire, who is a decent batting side on paper.

The bowling has been a bit of a letdown too. Callum Parkinson has five wickets at a good economy rate things go south very quickly from there. Delany has five wickets but is giving runs at nearly 10 runs an over and the same is the case with Ackerman and Davis.

Leicestershire is not scoring enough runs and is giving away too many while bowling. It has to hope for an inning of brilliance from one of its leading batsmen to get it more wins moving forward.

Derbyshire does not seem to be able to get any luck on its side this season and is struggling massively. Even on the occasions that it has played well, it ends up running into a superior team or one that is having a better day.

Derbyshire scored 185 in its previous match against Nottinghamshire and never looked like winning!

Like Leicestershire, Derbyshire is also struggling for runs. Wayne Madsen and Leus de Plooy are the only two batsmen with a fifty-plus score this season. Hughes, Critchley, Reece, and Godleman make a decent batting lineup on paper.

In practice, however, this lineup has struggled for any sort of form whatsoever.

The bowling cannot do much when the batsmen are not doing their job and so it is no entire unexpected that not a single one of Derbyshire’s bowlers has more than 3 wickets to his name. The average economy rate for the bowling attack is among the highest in the tournament.

An improvement in every facet of the game is important for Derbyshire to be able to win.

LEI vs DER Toss Prediction

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

Read our guide on toss predictions to learn how we analyze and come up with our tips.

Pitch and Conditions

The conditions in Leicester are expected to be very good for cricket. A sunny day with next to no chance of rain has been forecast. The pitch at Leicester is generally good for batting. It is a flat track with some very small boundaries that are going to tempt the big hitters on both teams.

We think a score of around 170 is the least that teams would be looking for batting first.

LEI vs DER Betting Tips

We think Leicestershire has a good chance of winning this match. It has home conditions to give it a slight advantage and its form has been better than Derbyshire so far. Neither side has too reliable a batting and that is something you must take into consideration.

Bet on Leicestershire to win.
