Cricket Betting Tips and Fantasy Cricket Match Predictions: Vitality Blast 2020 - Derbyshire Falcons vs Lancashire Lightning
The next North group match of the Vitality Blast 2020 will be played between Derbyshire Falcons and Lancashire Lightning at Emerald Headingley, Leeds.
Derbyshire vs Lancashire, North Group
Lancashire did a good job of restricting Leicestershire to 150/9 from their 50 overs. Tom Bailey was the wrecker-in-chief as he bagged a 5-wicket haul. His best bowling performance in T20 cricket - 5/17 had set up things nicely for Lancashire openers Keaton Jennings and Alex Davies.
Unfortunately for Lancashire, heavy rain after the completion of the Leicestershire innings meant that no further play was possible and the points had to be shared.
Derbyshire Falcons are placed at the 5th spot in the North group points table of the Vitality Blast 2020. The team is with 1 point from 2 matches after 1 loss and 1 washed out match.
Matthew Critchley was the top run-scorer for Derbyshire Falcons with 26 runs against Yorkshire. Billy Godleman, Luis Reece, Wayne Madsen and Leus du Plooy are their other batters who are expected to do well.
Matt McKiernan has been their leading bowler with 2 wickets from one inning. He has bowled at an average of 11 and an economy of 7.33, with the best of 2/24. Luis Reece has also picked up two.
