Derbyshire Falcons welcome Leicestershire Foxes to The 3aaa County Ground on Sunday – we take a look at one to watch, Cameron Delport.

The Family Fixture, starting at 2.30pm and kids go FREE, promises to be an explosive match between two in-form sides in the NatWest T20 Blast North Group, and Delport has the ability to cause problems with both bat and ball.

The all-rounder re-signed for the Foxes for the NatWest T20 Blast 2017 campaign after impressing during his previous stint.

Hailing from South Africa, he recently played for Hollywood Bets Dolphins in the CSA T20 Challenge and in one game scored 93 not out as an opener and then claimed 4-26 with the ball.

The 28-year-old has been opening the innings for the Foxes alongside Luke Ronchi, the pair forming a hard-hitting opening partnership, with Delport striking at 120. He has also impressed with the ball, taking wickets at regular intervals at an economy rate under seven.

He will be a prized early wicket for the Falcons and Gary Wilson wants to see another good crowd in Derby for the family fixture where under 16s go FREE.

“The crowd can definitely make it for the players,” said Wilson. “Support really counts, there is nothing better than a home crowd getting really behind you and once you get off to a good start or your batsman hits quick runs you can hear the crowd and feel them backing you all the way.”

Derbyshire Falcons face Leicestershire Foxes on Sunday 30 July; 2.30pm start, before the big clash against local rivals Notts Outlaws on Friday 4 August; 7pm start.
