Tuesday 1st August 2017
Written by Danny Painter

Wayne Madsen hit an unbeaten 86 from 44 balls versus Notts Outlaws at Trent Bridge and is the Falcons’ in-form batsman heading into the reverse fixture at The 3aaa County Ground on Friday 4 August; 7pm start.

Madsen’s knock included ten fours and four sixes as Derbyshire were narrowly defeated by 5 runs in a record-breaking NatWest T20 Blast attempted chase by the Falcons.

Derbyshire’s score of 222-5, chasing 228 to win, was the highest total by the Falcons when batting second and an innings symptomatic of improved batting performances in the competition.

In total, Madsen has hit five scores of 40 or above, including an unbeaten 49 versus Leicestershire Foxes in Derbyshire’s seven-wicket win with six overs to spare.

The Falcons head into back-to-back NatWest T20 Blast fixtures against Yorkshire Vikings at Headingley on Thursday; 6.30pm start, followed by the visit of local rivals Notts Outlaws on Friday 4 August; 7pm start.
