Saturday 20th April 2019
Written by Tom Skinner

Derbyshire has named an unchanged 14-man squad for the Royal London One-Day Cup match against Notts Outlaws at The Pattonair County Ground on Sunday 21 April; 11am start.

Billy Godleman will captain the side and is set to open the batting after an impressive performance in the win over Northants Steelbacks on Friday; he hit a fine 87 in the 53-run victory to kick-start the one-day campaign.

All-rounder Matt Critchley is expected to continue in the middle-order after his career-best List A score against the Steelbacks, striking a fluent 64 not out off 51 balls.

Alex Hughes will also bolster the batting order, but it was the ball he impressed with against Northants as he took career-best List A figures of 4-44.

Logan van Beek and Ravi Rampaul will lead the pace attack and the former was also in the wickets on Good Friday, claiming figures of 3-50.

Notts Outlaws arrive at The Pattonair County Ground for the first local derby of 2019 on the back of a 11-run win over Lancashire in their Royal London One-Day Cup opener.

Joe Clarke is set to open the batting for the Outlaws after he hit 139 in the opening match against Lancashire, his career-best score in List A cricket.

Steven Mullaney will captain the side and will offer a reliable option with both bat and ball. The 32-year-old has amassed over 2,300 runs in 114 List A matches, whilst he also 97 wickets and best figures of 4-29.

International quicks James Pattinson and Jake Ball will lead the bowling attack for the visitors, with both impressing in the match against Lancashire.

Australian Pattinson took 5-61, while England fast bowler Ball also claimed figures of 2-71 as the Outlaws were victorious against Lancashire at Trent Bridge.

Pre-Match Talk

Billy Godleman was pleased with his side’s performance after Derbyshire beat Northants Steelbacks by 53 runs on Good Friday.

The 30-year-old hit a fine 87 to guide his side to victory on, and he was also impressed from what he saw on Leus du Plooy’s debut for the club.

Godleman said: “Although it was our choice to bat first we definitely didn’t have the easy end of the conditions so to find a way to get a score on the board and then the way the guys bowled and fielded in the first 10 overs was what won us the game.

“I was finding it hard work out there but I did just have a feeling if we were able to post 250 or 260 and bowled well up front, we would be well in the game so it worked out nicely.

“With the time in the game when he came out to bat and what the ball was doing off the surface, I thought he played really well.

“He was tidy in the field and he’s a top lad as well so I think he’s a great addition for us.

“It always helps to win the first game and the home fixture against Notts is one of, if not the biggest game of the season so we’re ready and we can’t wait.”
