Leicestershire and Derbyshire will lock horns in a Group B match of the Royal London One Day Cup at Grace Road, Leicester on Thursday.
Leicestershire had a forgettable campaign in the 2019 Royal London One Day Cup as they ended the tournament with the wooden spoon. They won just two of their eight matches played. With a stronger squad, they would look to turn the tables around this season.
Meanwhile, Derbyshire missed out on knockout qualification in the 2019 season by a whisker. They were pretty inconsistent with their performances throughout the season and had to settle for fifth place at the end of the group stage. With most of their stars part of participating in the inaugural 'The Hundred' tournament, they will look to start their campaign with a win.

Match: Leicestershire vs Derbyshire, Group B.
Date and Time (IST): 22nd July, 3:30 PM.
Venue: Grace Road, Leicester.
In this season’s T20 Blast, the wicket at this venue was a sporting one, with equal help for both batsmen and bowlers. Pacers should extract a lot of bounce in the initial overs, with lateral movement on offer.
It would be a good choice to bat first after winning the toss, as the pitch tends to slow down as the game progresses.
