Derbyshire Team News & Playing 11

DER Team News

It has been an encouraging season for Derbyshire in this year’s T20 Blast so far and they currently sit just two points behind the top four in fifth place. However, they need to bounce back in this match after losing by nine wickets with 11 balls remaining in their last game.

DER Team Batting

Derbyshire looked set for a big total and possibly a victory against Yorkshire Vikings on Sunday when their opening pair of David Lloyd and Aneurin Donald put on 114 runs from the first ten overs. The Falcons will be looking for more of the same from the openers in this match.

DER Team Bowling

Defending a target of 180, Derbyshire’ bowlers struggled against the experienced trio of Adam Lyth, Dawid Malan and Joe Root at the top of Yorkshire’s batting. Daryn Dupavillon was the only bowler to take a wicket in that game but Zak Chappell and Pat Brown have both had strong seasons so far.

DER Team Form

Derbyshire come into this game after a heavy defeat but have won two of their last four.

Derbyshire Predicted Playing 11

David Lloyd, Aneurin Donald, Wayne Madsen, Samit Patel (c), Ross Whiteley, Cam Fletcher, Brooke Guest (wk), Zak Chappell, Alex Thomson, Pat Brown, Daryn Dupavillon

Northamptonshire Team News & Playing 11

NOR Team News

Sitting one place and two points above their opponents in this game, Northamptonshire are well placed and have a game in hand over three of their fellow top five sides. A win in this match could see them take over at the top of the North Group.

NOR Team Batting

After losing to Yorkshire Vikings at the start of the month, Northamptonshire returned to winning ways last weekend went they beat Worcestershire Rapids. Middle order runs as well as a good start from the openers were crucial and we expect this experienced batting line-up to enjoy the surface in Derby.

NOR Team Bowling

Nine wickets were taken by the Northamptonshire’ bowling attack against Worcestershire Rapids and it was only Zimbabwean spinner Sikandar Raza who went wicketless of the seven bowlers used. Saif Zaib was the standout bowler in that game and he will fancy his chances against the Falcons.

NOR Team Form

Northamptonshire have won three of their last four games in the tournament.

Northamptonshire Predicted Playing 11

Ricardo Vasconcelos, Matthew Breetzke, David Willey (c), Ravi Bopara, Sikandar Raza, Saif Zaib, Lewis McManus (wk), George Bartlett, Ben Sanderson, Freddie Heldreich, Raphael Weatherall

🏆 Derbyshire vs Northamptonshire Prediction

Both Derbyshire and Northamptonshire will currently be expecting to finish in the top four and progress to the knockout stage but they need to maintain their good starts to the season. The Falcons have stumbled a little bit of late whereas the Steelbacks have been very impressive. Our prediction is for Northamptonshire to win this clash.
