Summer’s back and so is explosive Vitality Blast cricket. Relive standout highlights ahead of this year’s competition and make sure you never miss a Blast Moment in 2019.

In 2017, Derbyshire hit 211 to beat Lancashire by 35 runs at The Pattonair County Ground, with Luis Reece’s unbeaten 97 and 42 not out from Daryn Smit helping the hosts to their third-highest score in Twenty20 cricket.

3-37 from Matt Henry and 2-16 from Matt Critchley secured victory for Derbyshire, with the visitors only managing 176/9 from their 20 overs.

Derbyshire get their Vitality Blast campaign underway at home to Yorkshire Vikings on Saturday 20 July in a big local derby at the picturesque Queen’s Park.

They welcome rivals Notts Outlaws to The Pattonair County Ground the following Friday (26 July) in what is expected to be another hotly-contested match-up in front of a packed crowd in Derby.

Led by new Twenty20 Head Coach, Dominic Cork, the Falcons play a total of seven home matches during the height of summer in July and August.

Tickets for all matches are on sale now, from just £16 for adults and £4 for juniors, while group bookings receive further discounts.

Never miss a Blast Moment in 2019. Buy tickets in advance and save from £4. See you this summer.
