The 6th match of the Vitality T20 Blast 2020 is all set to be played between Derbyshire and Leicestershire at the Grace Road Ground.
The match is scheduled to start at 06:30 PM Local Time (11:00 PM IST) and can be streamed live on FanCode.
Starting off their campaigns in the Vitality Blast T20 competition 2020 will be Derbyshire and Leicestershire when they face off against each other on Thursday evening. Both the teams coming into this tournament would be short on experience, in terms of playing at the ground and would have a lot to figure out when they step on to the field.
Given the fact that they are inexperienced in terms of pitch behaviour and what combination of their team would work the best on this surface, things would be balanced between the two sides. Both the teams would be rooting for a win, starting their campaign on a winning note.
Thursday’s weather forecast does not look particularly good for a cricket match, as there is a 90 per cent chance of rainfall and the temperatures are expected to be in the 13 to 16 degree Celsius range.
The pitch at the Grace Road Ground will be balanced for the most part and the only players who would have a little room to work with would be the pace bowlers.
