It will be the battle between Leicestershire and Derbyshire as the Vitality T20 Blast rolls on to 28th May at Grace Road, Leicester.

Leicestershire, led by Colin Ackermann, gave a torrid start to their campaign, losing the opening fixture against Durham by 54 runs. Barring Rishi Patel, who scored 31-ball 40, their batting contingent drowned in deep water. While their top-order succumbed to the early burst of Paul Coughlin, Liam Trevaskis and Scott Borthwick wiped off the remaining substantial batting unit.

Leicestershire's bowling as well found no significant success. Although Rehan Ahmed, Callum Parkinson and Naveen-ul-Haq applied the brakes, the other bowlers let it too loose and paved the way for a hammering.

On the other hand, Derbyshire will head to this fixture after their face-off against Warwickshire. They have a new captain-coach combo for the season in the form of Shan Masood and Mickey Arthur.

Derbyshire has suffered a major dent even before the start of the campaign as their pacer Suranga Lakmal is ruled out of the entire season. Australia's Hayden Kerr is announced as the replacement and is likely to make the initial XI.

The team went through a league stage exit last year, but with a few tweaks this time around, their comeback can be a possibility.
