Derbyshire have named a 14-man squad for their sold out Vitality Blast fixture against Yorkshire Vikings at Queen’s Park, Chesterfield, starting tomorrow (2.30pm).
T20 captain, Shan Masood, took his good form from the Blast into this week’s LV= County Championship fixture, scoring 49 and 98 as Derbyshire overcame Middlesex inside three days. The opening also has half-centuries in each of his last two T20 innings.
The Falcons are aiming to make it four wins in-a-row over the Vikings at Chesterfield, with Wayne Madsen taking part in each of those games, and the batter will be looking to build on his 62 and 49 not our earlier this week on the same ground.
With wins over Leicestershire Foxes and Worcestershire Rapids in each of their last two T20 games, the Falcons know a win over the Vikings will keep them in contention for a place in the knockout stages.
There is no fresh injury news for the Falcons since their last time out in the Vitality Blast, away to Worcestershire Rapids.
