Marcus Harris’ presence is a big positive for Leicestershire.
On the opening day of the Royal London One-Day Cup 2021, there will be a contest between Leicestershire and Derbyshire in a Group B match. The match is expected to be close as the two teams are pretty much balanced and have some quality players.
Leicestershire ended being the last team in the points table in the North Group in the 2019 Royal London One-Day Cup. They have won only two of their eight games. On the other hand, Derbyshire in that same group had ended as the fifth-ranked team with three wins, four losses, and one drawn match in eight games.

The wicket in Leicester is at times slow and could produce low-scoring encounters. Fans will want to see some good batsmanship as well as some good bowling performance, which might mean the curator makes a flatter wicket than usual.

Top Picks – Leicestershire
Marcus Harris has played some List A cricket back home in Australia and scored more than 1000 runs in the format. He would be expected to bring all his experience into play for this tournament.
Lewis Hill will be the wicketkeeper as well as the captain of this team and should be able to score some runs. He has around 1000 runs but he would definitely want to work on his List A career, which is at this moment under 30.
Top Picks – Derbyshire
Billy Godleman is an experienced player with loads of runs in the List A format. So far, he has managed to score 2559 runs in his career with an average of 43.37.
F Hudson-Prentice has had a good season this year so far. He has scored some valuable runs for the Derbyshire team in the recent T20 Blast and also picked up crucial wickets. This will be only his fourth list A match and a great opportunity for the youngster.
