Pre-Match Pack: Warwickshire

Monday 29th April 2019
Written by Danny Painter

Logan van Beek and Mark Watt return to a 13-man Derbyshire squad for the Royal London One-Day Cup match against Warwickshire at The Pattonair County Ground on Tuesday 30 April; 11am start.

In-form batsman Leus du Plooy and pace bowler Alfie Gleadall miss out through injuries picked up against Durham and Leicestershire respectively.

Du Plooy sustained a hand injury attempting a return catch, while Gleadall aggravated a side strain and will be assessed by the club’s medical team.

Billy Godleman is the competition’s most prolific batsman with 439 runs at an average of 109.75, including a record three successive centuries.

Wayne Madsen is yet to find his best form in the One-Day Cup, but he still has 160 runs at an average of 32 and he’ll continue in the top order, below openers Godleman and Luis Reece.

All-rounders Reece and Alex Hughes will slot into the middle order, while Matt Critchley offers leg spin and powerful lower-order hitting.

Van Beek is expected to lead the pace attack alongside fellow international seamer, Ravi Rampaul.

Warwickshire head into the tie on the back of their first Royal London One-Day Cup win, against Worcestershire on Sunday.

Sam Hain hit an unbeaten 161 off 141 balls as Warwickshire posted 315-5 at Worcester. Jeetan Patel then claimed 3-37 as the visitors ran out 34-run winners, bowling Worcestershire out for 281.

Prior to that win, Patel’s side had lost three and had one tie against Yorkshire.

Pre-Match Talk

Batsman Tom Lace reflected on the defeat to Durham, but remains confident of Derbyshire’s chances of reaching the knockout stages of the Royal London One-Day Cup.

“It’s a shame to lose because we’ve been playing some nice cricket in the last three or four games.

“If you said to us you’ll only come away with one point from the last two games, we’d feel hard done by given to the way we batted against Yorkshire and again today, although we may have been 20 run short against Durham.

“We’re competing in every game, which is important. We’re by no means out of the picture with two winnable games coming up.”
