Derbyshire Falcons have named their squad for the back-to-back Royal London One-Day Cup fixtures versus Northamptonshire Steelbacks and Leicestershire Foxes, away on Sunday and at home on Monday respectively. 

Wes Durston’s side compete in their final two group fixtures in as many days, starting on Sunday at Northampton, still in the hunt for a quarter-final spot.

The Falcons have made two changes to their squad that lost to Lancashire last time out, with loan signing Alex Mellor coming in to replace the injured Harvey Hosein. Mellor will make his List A debut and take over behind the stumps.

New Zealand all-rounder, Jimmy Neesham, has also been added to the squad and will replace Hamish Rutherford as overseas player.
