Leicestershire will take on Derbyshire in game 15 of the Vitality T20 Blast 2022. At Grace Road Ground in Leicester, this North Group duel will be played on Saturday.
Leicestershire have played Durham in the opening game this season. Unfortunately, this resulted in a 54-run loss. Roman Walker and Rehan Ahmed each recorded two wickets as Durham hit 184/8 first.
In response, Leicestershire were eliminated for just 130, falling well short of the target. Rishi Patel was the only notable player for them with the racquet with his 31-ball 40.
Derbyshire, on the other hand, also suffered a defeat in their first game against Warwickshire. Despite a three-wicket draw by Samuel Conners, Warwickshire put up a scary 200/6 total on the board. Derbyshire was in the game well and fell painfully behind with just three runs to finish at 197/8. Brooke Guest hit a brave 34-ball 54.
Both teams are therefore looking for their first win and this will be an important game for them.
