Derbyshire return to The 3aaa County Ground for their final game of the 2017 campaign at headquarters, in what will be the 130th scheduled first class game against Glamorgan.

Heritage Officer, David Griffin, looks at the statistical background to the game.

Glamorgan, admitted to the ranks of first-class cricket in 1921, will be playing at Derby for the 36th time, having also faced Derbyshire at home venues in Burton-on-Trent, Chesterfield and Ilkeston.

Derbyshire’s record at Derby against Glamorgan has been excellent in recent years; since Glamorgan won at Derby in 2006, Derbyshire have subsequently won four (consecutively) and drawn four of the eight games since.

Derbyshire batsmen have enjoyed playing against Glamorgan at Derby with 17 different batsmen recording hundreds against them, including Wayne Madsen (the most recent batsman to do so, in 2012), and Kim Barnett (twice) who carried his bat for 108 not out in an innings total of 214 in 1993.

Peter Kirsten’s 213 not out remains the highest individual score for Derbyshire against Glamorgan at Derby in June 1980, whilst he also scored another unbeaten double hundred against the same opponents at Chesterfield in 1978.

George Pope’s 7-34 tops the bowling analysis against Glamorgan at Derby, while more recently, Kevin Dean took 7-42 in 2002.

The last bowler to take five wickets in an innings at Derby was Tony Palladino who returned figures of 5-83 in 2016.

Unusually, the game between the two sides last season, was interrupted by a flurry of light snow on the third day.
