Derbyshire will lock horns with Lancashire in the 1st match of the Vitality Blast 2023 at the Edgbaston in Birmingham on May 20. The tournament will start with a doubleheader, the first of which will be played between Derbyshire and Lancashire. Teams will play in two groups, with the North Group featuring Derbyshire, Durham, Lancashire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire, and Yorkshire. Essex, Glamorgan, Gloucestershire, Hampshire, Kent, Middlesex, Somerset, Surrey, and Sussex make up the South Group. The nine teams in each group of the T20 Blast 2023 will play 14 league matches, seven home and seven away, between May 20 and July 2. The top four teams will clash in the two semi-finals, followed by the final, all on Finals Day at Edgbaston on July 15.
Derbyshire performed well last season, managing to win nine out of their 14 games. They were placed in the third position in the standings of North Group and missed qualifying for the semi-final just because of the net run rate. Overall, they have a good record in this tournament and surely would forward to qualifying this season and ultimately winning the title. Nye Donald, George Scrimshaw, and Zaman Khan have been picked by Derbyshire, who could be seen playing key roles with Mickey Arthur as a new coach to the team.
Lancashire had won eight of their 14 games, with one tied and one match canceled due to rain. So, with 18 points and a better net run rate than Derbyshire, they qualified for the semi-final, which they won and ultimately played the final. Lancashire squared off against Hampshire in the final, where Hampshire won the toss and elected to bat. Ben McDermott played a fantastic innings of 62 off 36 balls, which helped them push to a total of 152 runs for the loss of eight wickets. In return, multiple batters of Lancashire got starts, but none of them could convert them into big scores. The match got very interesting in the end and was ultimately clutched by Hampshire as they won the match and the tournament by just one run. George Bell is a talented wicketkeeper-batter who has been signed by Lancashire and would be expected to bring some form he has shown in the County Championship.
