Match Details:

The match between Leicestershire and Derbyshire in the North Group of the Vitality T20 Blast 2019 will take place at the Grace Road, Leicester on Sunday, August 25 at 1.30 pm GMT.

Team News:


Captain Colin Ackermann became a sensation overnight, when he set the record for the best figures in a T20 match. He is Leicester’s highest wicket-taker as well as highest run scorer. Mark Cosgrove and wicker-keeper Harry Swindells have been decent here and there, but the team would want some consistency going into the business end of the tournament.


Derbyshire’s batting has been in decent form. Leus du Plooy, along with captain Billy Godleman and Wayne Madsen have come good for them. In the bowling department, West Indian Ravi Rampaul is boasting of 18 scalps in 10 matches, and should be expected can be relied upon to come good.

Weather and pitch report
