Derbyshire have named an unchanged 14-man squad for the Royal London One-Day Cup fixture versus Lancashire Lightning at The 3aaa County Ground on Wednesday 27 July; 2pm start – and kids go FREE.

Just three group games remain for the Falcons, who sit fourth in the North Group, starting with Lancashire, then a trip to Northants before finishing back at The 3aaa on Monday 1 August to face Leicestershire Foxes.

Derbyshire completed the double over Lancashire in their two NatWest T20 Blast match-ups and will hope they can inflict another defeat this time in the Royal London One-Day Cup on Wednesday.

The Falcons lost their last outing versus Notts Outlaws on Sunday, despite a half-century from Ben Slater and three wickets from Shiv Thakor. John Sadler has named an unchanged squad to face the Lightning.
