Northamptonshire Team News & Playing 11

NOR Team News

It was announced on Monday that Australian international Ashton Agar will join up with the side after the end of the 2024 T20 World Cup and will replace Sikandar Raza who will then go to Zimbabwe for their series with India. Last season, the Steelbacks finished in sixth place in the North Group.

NOR Team Batting

There is plenty of excitement around the supporters of Northamptonshire Steelbacks after the signing of South African top order batter Matthew Breetzke for this tournament. He was not selected for his country for the T20 World Cup but impressed during the SA20 with Durban Super Giants earlier this year.

NOR Team Bowling

The Steelbacks have a varied and experienced bowling attack who should be able to cause problems to Derbyshire Falcons’ batters across their innings. Captain David Willey and Ben Sanderson are likely to open the bowling with Sikandar Raza an excellent and economical spin bowling all-rounder.

NOR Team Form

Northamptonshire Steelbacks ended last season’s T20 Blast with two defeats from their last three games.

Derbyshire Team News & Playing 11

DER Team News

As ever, Derbyshire Falcons have recruited some impressive international players for this year’s tournament. Mohammad Amir was an early signing but he will now miss the opening month due to the T20 World Cup. However, Blair Tickner and Daryn Dupavillon will both play on Thursday.

DER Team Batting

We can expect Harry Came, Wayne Madsen and captain Leus du Plooy to be the main run contributors for Derbyshire Falcons in this campaign as well as in Northamptonshire on Thursday. Du Plooy has seen his reputation go up a few levels over recent seasons.

DER Team Bowling

Derbyshire Falcons have a good pace attack to show off in this game and both of their overseas players are likely to open the bowling. George Scrimshaw bowls a reliable length and he will be looking to push for international honours off the back of his T20 performances.

DER Team Form

Derbyshire Falcons saw their knockout stage hopes fade away with two defeats from their last three games.

🏆 Northamptonshire vs Derbyshire Prediction

There was only one point separating the two sides in the North Group in 2023 but crucially neither side progressed to the knockout stage. Both will be keen to get off to a winning start on Thursday evening and we expect Northamptonshire’s superior batting to be key. We are backing Northamptonshire to win.
