Derbyshire Falcons v Lancashire Lightning – Team News

Lancashire already have a 2020 T20 Blast centurion in Keaton Jennings, who starred in victory over Durham recently.

He’ll likely open the batting alongside Alex Davies again. Captain Dane Vilas is there to galvanise the middle-order.

Bowling-wise, Lancashire have spin trio Tom Hartley, Matthew Parkison and Steven Croft to centre their approach around. Croft could take the new ball again. Parkinson has played for England.

The Falcons have an astute captain in Billy Godleman, who will bat inside a stronger order that includes the experienced Wayne Madsen and talented Leus du Plooy.

Du Plooy has been in fine form in the Bob Willis Trophy – and can transfer that solid stretch into the shorter format.

If Derbyshire have a weakness, it’s in their bowling department, which is without the veteran Ravi Rampaul. Michael Cohen could be the one to perform well in Rampaul’ absence.

Derbyshire Falcons v Lancashire Lightning – Betting Tips and Prediction

Here are a few more free cricket betting tips and predictions. These could help you make more informed decisions, as the Falcons and Lightning clash in the T20 Blast in Leeds.

Bet on du Plooy to be Derbyshire’s Top Batsman

Leus du Plooy has been in superb form for his county in the Bob Willis Trophy. He is the type of batsman that quickly adjust his game plan from first-class to T20 cricket.

Whether he opens the batting or comes at the fall of the first wicket, du Plooy is well-positioned to get Derbyshire off to a flyer.

He is priced at 6.0 with 22BetΒ to be his team’s top run-scorer.

Choose the Total Number of Fours to Be More than 26.5

Whether the bulk of the fours and sixes come from du Plooy or other batsman, Derbyshire and Lancashire are nicely poised to hit more than 26.5 fours in this match.

There are great stroke makers in Wayne Madsen and Billy Godleman, in particular, to help with the job as well.

Headingley is a reasonably good wicket for batting – and offers good value for solid stroke play. Bodog India have 26.5+ fours to be hit priced at 1.75.

Pick Parkinson to be Lancashire’s Top Bowler

Leg-spinners can be a bit hit or miss, especially in T20 cricket. Matthew Parkinson isn’t nearly as good as, say, Imran Tahir, but he is a promising talent.

He has already been recognised at international level. He might prove expensive, but he’ll likely take wickets as well, as batsmen look to capitalise but fail. He is priced at 3.5 with 22Bet to be the top bowler for his team.
