This Friday, the Falcons continue their push for a place in the Vitality Blast quarter-finals, when they take on high-flying Lancashire Lightning at The Incora County Ground. 

The blockbuster fixture will see two sides vying for a place in the knockout stages go head-to-head, as Mickey Arthur’s Derbyshire Falcons take on a Lancashire side stacked with international talent.

As the Vitality Blast moves into the business end of the group stage, the Falcons are well in the hunt for a place in the quarter-finals, with a run of  five wins in-a-row, placing them in second place with three games to play.

As we prepare for another action-packed encounter at The Incora County Ground, here’s what you can expect:

Drama, emotion and top-class cricket

T20 is a game where anything can happen, with world-class overseas talent on show, along with a who’s who of county cricket’s top performers, there’s always the potential for mind-blowing moments.

Shan Masood, Wayne Madsen, Leus du Plooy and Luis Reece all have the potential to take the game away from their opponents, while the aggression and innovation of Scotland spinner, Mark Watt, keeps even the best batters guessing.

All-rounder, Hayden Kerr, is one of the Big Bash’s biggest stars he’ll be looking to bring some Aussie heat to the opposition batters, while seamer George Scrimshaw will be looking to further-strengthen his challenge to be this season’s leading Vitality Blast wicket-taker.
