Get off the mark this week with quick-fire stories to keep you up to date with the latest news from Derbyshire.
Harvey Hosein extends his stay with Derbyshire, Ravi Rampaul joins the Delhi Bulls and Sarah Glenn is selected by England for the first time.
Harvey Hosein has signed a new two-year deal with Derbyshire, keeping him at The Pattonair County Ground until the end of the 2022 season.
A graduate of the Cricket Derbyshire Academy in partnership with the University of Derby, Hosein has been with the club for over a decade, coming through the ranks to become a key member in the first team squad.
The 2019 season was the 23-year-old’s best to date, as he struck five half-centuries and averaged 28.09 in the County Championship, while he also completed 44 dismissals.
Head of Cricket, Dave Houghton, said: “Harvey took the responsibility of being first-choice wicketkeeper in four day cricket last season really well and he showed great maturity.
“He has done well and his potential is clear to see, we are excited to see his continued development in the next three years.”
Hosein added: “It was a huge confidence boost to be given the gloves last season, and the opportunity really gave me some good experience.
“I’m really looking forward to showing what I can do in the next three years and hopefully helping the side to success in the near future.”
Ravi Rampaul has joined Delhi Bulls in the 2019 Abu Dhabi T10 League.
Rampaul enjoyed a stellar Vitality Blast campaign with Derbyshire, breaking the club-record for T20 wickets in a season on the way to finishing as the competition’s leading wicket-taker with 23.
He finished with 80 wickets in all formats, and was named as Derbyshire’s Vitality Blast Player of the Year and Overall Player of the Year for 2019.
Rampaul made a strong start to the competition, conceding just nine runs in Delhi’s opening match against the Deccan Gladiators, before he claimed 2-16 in a defeat to Karnataka Tuskers.
Leg-spinner Sarah Glenn has been selected by England for the first time for their limited-overs series against Pakistan in Malaysia.
The former Derbyshire Women’s bowler, from Loscoe, enjoyed a successful season in the Kia Super League, claiming 11 wickets at an average of 18.72 for Loughborough Lightning.
England will face Pakistan in three ODIs and three T20s during the tour, which begins on Monday 9 December at the Kinrara Oval in Kuala Lumpur.
