Derbyshire Falcons have named an unchanged squad for the NatWest T20 Blast local derby versus Yorkshire Vikings at The 3aaa County Ground, on Sunday 10 July; 2.30pm start.

The Falcons will be looking to bounce back from Friday night’s defeat to Leicestershire as they look to get their hopes of a quarter-final spot back on track.

A victory on Sunday afternoon could move John Sadler’s side back into the top four, with three NatWest T20 Blast North Group fixtures, two at Derby, remaining.

72. Hamish Rutherford
3. Wes Durston
22. Chesney Hughes
