THE LOWDOWN

An unlikely top of the table clash awaits here with both Leicestershire and Derbyshire pulling off dramatic victories in their opening Bob Willis Trophy fixtures. Leicestershire chased down 150 within 17 overs to beat Lancashire, whilst Derbyshire pulled off their highest ever first-class run chase, beating Nottinghamshire by three wickets after chasing down 365.

THE PREDICTION

These two sides were expected to prop up the North Group rather than set the pace and now a fantastic opportunity has arisen for one of these teams to make it two wins in two games. Derbyshire’s top order was firing on all cylinders against Nottinghamshire, but Leicestershire’s bowlers are full of confidence having taken 20 wickets against Lancashire. With home advantage in their favour, Leicestershire should have the edge in what could be a very close encounter.
