This Thursday, the Falcons take on Leicestershire Foxes, and there’s plenty to enjoy on and off the field at The Incora County Ground.
From a Mini Beer Festival, which will see half a dozen new ales and ciders on offer, to games to test your lightning-fast reflexes near the Club Shop, courtesy of Gigabit Networks, this fixture is not one to be missed.
The Falcons come into the game knowing that a win will put them into contention for a place in the knockout stages of the competition. Here’s what you can expect from this huge fixture.
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 smash the ball onto the streets of Derby, while bowlers George Scrimshaw and Sam Conners will be looking to add further to their impressive records.
