Rain thwarts first day for Second XI

Monday 18th September 2017
Written by Danny Painter

Heavy overnight rain resulting in a wet outfield forced the abandonment of Day One between Derbyshire Second XI and Hampshire at Denby CC without a ball bowled.

Derbyshire will have to wait until Day Two to begin the three-day friendly in Denby after umpires decided the outfield was to wet to start on the first day.

Batsman James Kettleborough will be looking to carry through his recent form from the Yorkshire fixture where he struck a well-made 180 against a strong side.

Pace options come from the likes of Tom Milnes and James Taylor, whilst Matt Sonczak leads the spin attack.

Derbyshire Squad: Wood, Macdonell, Kettleborough, Milnes, Morgan, Wanford, Wright, Sonczak, Priestley, J Taylor, Jacobs, Brett.

Derbyshire’s final home game is vs Kent at Chesterfield. Save £4 by purchasing your matchday tickets in advance. While further discounts are available for groups of 10 or more. Buy online or call 01332 388 101.
