The new season of the T20 Blast is here upon us, and all teams are ready to start this journey to be crowned champions. With batting much more evolved and bowlers getting much smarter, the contest between bat and ball in the shortest format in the T20 Blast will be a spectacle to watch out for.

Derbyshire Falcons came off an extremely good last season in the T20 Blast. However they would have been extremely disappointed by a quarter final exit, but will look forward to going all the way this season. They finished second in their group last season and will look to better that stat as well.

Lancashire Lightning were just one step away last season in lifting the T2O Blast 2022 title. Losing the final by just 1 run would have been extremely painful and they will be out to avenge that loss and win the T20 Blast 2023. They look extremely strong and will try and push all they have just like last season.

Derbyshire Preview

After an impressive last season, the Derbyshire Falcons will look to make this season a big one. They were second in their group and on an impressive run till they had to end their season prematurely after losing in the quarter finals. They are back and with some interesting talents and players, they will want to go further than last season.

Derbyshire is not the strongest squad in the competition, but they have some really good players with high potential. Leus Du Plooy is one such name who everybody will have their eyes on. Their batting will be extremely dependent on him due to his high scoring. Haider Ali is also a fantastic batsmen who is an upcoming star and will also have a huge impact on the competition.

Their bowling however is their weakest suit in comparison to their batting. Suranga Lakmal will have to lead this bowling line up with his experience and his wicket taking ability. He along with Zak Chappell will be the mainstays of the bowling department and will look to do well in order to propel the team.

Lancashire Preview

Cricket is a cruel game, and no better than Lancashire to face that first hand last season. Losing the final by just 1 run, they will be extremely disappointed and disheartened but each season comes with its own beauty. They have one of the strongest squads on paper and will look to go all the way.

The batting line-up looks ever so destructive for the Lancashire Lightnings They will be eyeing the big scores whenever they are put into bat, and will be fearless of any target whatsoever, because of the fire power they possess. Liam Livingston, Phil Salt and Daryl Mitchell will be expected to do the heavy lifting, as they are T20 Specialists and will look to decimate any bowling line up.

The bowling department looks the weaker out of the 2 departments for Lancashire. The big name here is James Anderson. He will be key for Lancashire as they will need the bowlers to win the championship. The all round abilities of Colin de Grandhomme will also be extremely crucial.

Key Players:  Liam Livingston, Phil Salt, James Anderson, Colin de Grandhomme

Lancashire Predicted Playing XI:

Keaton Jennings, Luke Wells, Josh Bohannon, Liam Livingstone, Steven Croft, Luke Wood, Tom Bailey, Danny Lamb, Phil Salt, James Anderson, Dane Vilas (South Africa), Daryl Mitchell (New Zealand), Colin de Grandhomme (New Zealand)

Venue Details

The Edgbaston in Birmingham, England will be hosting this encounter.  The capacity of the ground is 21,000.

This is a high scoring ground, which will remain true over the course of both the innings. Hence teams prefer to chase as the ground is extremely good for batting.

Toss: To Bowl

The team that wins the toss would want to bowl first. With the pitch remaining true for both innings, and the weather too really good to play cricket, the team who wins the toss will look to have a bowl first.

With the majority of the stars unavailable due to the Indian Premier League, it will be interesting how the teams line up. Derbyshire Falcons finished above Lancashire and will look to do so again. Lancashire on the other hand will want to get to the finals and win it this time. They will be without many big names, hence it is important for them to not lose alot of games before they arrive.

We predict that Lancashire Lighting will beat Derbyshire Falcons.
