The England and Wales Cricket Board has confirmed the new date for a fixture which was due to be played this week but was put back after Derbyshire wicketkeeper Tom Poynton was involved in a car accident which claimed the life of his father Keith.

Leicestershire still plan to send a team to take on Leeds-Bradford MCCU in a three-day match set to start on June 9. That match will run concurrently to their meeting with Derbyshire at Grace Road.
