The Aston Lark three-day Tourist Fixture begins on Thursday 29 August (11am start), with Australia’s biggest names set to feature at The Pattonair County Ground. 

The tourists arrive in Derbyshire having lost their lead in The Ashes, after Ben Stokes produced a match-winning innings of 135 not out as England levelled the series.

Having missed the the Third Test due to injury, Steve Smith is likely to feature in Derby as he aims for some time at the crease ahead of a crucial Fourth Test at Emirtates Old Trafford.

A strong Australia side is expected to play against Derbyshire, who will be buoyed by the momentum of reaching the Vitality Blast knockout stages.

Supporters can save £4 by purchasing their tickets in advance of the day of the game, while further discounts are available when purchased as a group of 10 or more.

Members will be able to attend this match for free as part of their 2019 Membership package.
