After two weeks of voting, we can finally reveal who you selected for Derbyshire’s Greatest XI. 

Voting has now closed for the team, after 40 of Derbyshire’s best players from the last century-and-a-half where whittled down to 11 by members and supporters.

Heritage Officer and Statistician, David Griffin explains the process and the criteria for selection.

The structure of the XI is based on historical selection to ensure there is depth in batting, pace and spin bowling. Only one overseas player permitted, with the overseas player that receives the most votes being selected for the overall XI.

The 40 nominees were selected based on their playing records for Derbyshire with a minimum of five seasons’ service. All statistical information given includes the individual’s performances in all formats of the game – first-class, List A and Twenty20 – up until the end of the 2019 season.

Throughout the day, we will be revealing our Greatest XI, made up of two openers, three batsmen, one pace-bowling all-rounder, one spin-bowling all-rounder, one wicketkeeper, one spin bowler and two fast bowlers.
