Derbyshire Falcons face both the white and the red-rose county in the NatWest T20 Blast in the space of just four days at Derby – and tickets are on sale for both fixtures.

Both sides will bring an abundance of international talent to The 3aaa County Ground, with Yorkshire visiting on Sunday 10 July for a 2.30pm start, before Lancashire are welcomed to Derby on Wednesday 13 July at 6.30pm.

Yorkshire will have several of their England stars available for the match on Sunday, including Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid and David Willey, all of whom have been released by their country after the recent ODI and T20I series with Sri Lanka.

Also likely to feature for the Vikings are former England men Tim Bresnan and Adam Lyth, in addition to Gary Ballance who recently secured his return to the England Test squad after another prosperous run-scoring season in county cricket.

If English talent isn’t enough, Yorkshire’s international line-up continues with New Zealand batsman Kane Williamson, who is currently ranked by the ICC as the second-best batsman in the world.

Not to be outdone by their Roses counterparts, Lancashire also boast a wealth of big name talents who are likely to thrive under the pressure of the Sky Sports cameras when the Lightning do battle against the Falcons on Wednesday night.

World Superstar Jos Buttler missing out on the England Test team will only serve as a blessing for the Red Rose, who will be pleased to welcome the explosive wicketkeeper-batsman back into their line-up for the NatWest T20 Blast over the coming weeks.

Also likely to turn out for the Lightning are former South Africa opening batsman Alviro Peterson, who has form for hitting big runs against Derbyshire, and big-hitter Liam Livingstone who has been terrorising bowling attacks up and down the country in the past year.

With all these big names, in addition to Derbyshire’s healthy run-scoring line-up, explosive NatWest T20 Blast action is sure to be in store for anybody visiting The 3aaa County Ground for the Roses Double at Derby.

Supporters can save 20% by purchasing their NatWest T20 Blast matchday tickets in advance of the day of the game. Buy online, over the phone by calling 01332 388 101 or in person at The 3aaa County Ground.
