With just three days to go until the return of the Vitality Blast, we take a look a three great reasons to experience Twenty20 cricket at The Pattonair County Ground.
Reason #1: Explosive rivalries
Twenty20 cricket is the most explosive form of the game, and the Vitality Blast offers the best entertainment around, with fierce rivalries set to be renewed and old scores to be settled.
Led by Twenty20 Head Coach, Dominic Cork, Derbyshire will kick off their Vitality Blast campaign against rivals, Yorkshire at Queen’s Park, Chesterfield on Saturday 20 July in a 2:30pm start.
Last year’s fixture saw one of the most thrilling finishes to a match anywhere, when Matt Critchley struck former England Test bowler, Tim Bresnan for 22 off the final over to win the match for Derbyshire.
After that, the East Midlands Rivalry between the Falcons and Notts Outlaws will resume under the lights, with plenty of history between the two sides, the match is not one to be missed on Friday 26 July, 7pm start.
But that’s not all, there are five more explosive Twenty20 clashes at The Pattonair County Ground, with Derbyshire hosting Lancashire Lightning, Durham, Worcestershire Rapids, Leicestershire Foxes and Northants Steelbacks.
