Derbyshire Falcons have named a 16-man squad for their Vitality Blast fixture against Durham at The Incora County Ground (tomorrow, 2.30pm).

Having already qualified for the Vitality Blast quarter-finals, thanks to results elsewhere on Friday night, the Falcons will end the group stage against a Durham side already out of contention for the knockout stages.

Captain Shan Masood (516) is joint-second in the run-scoring charts for the entire competition, and he will be looking to add to that in his final T20 appearance before joining up with Pakistan ahead of their Test series with Sri Lanka.

Australia all-rounder, Hilton Cartwright, made his Derbyshire debut against India and will be hoping to put in a good performance against Durham ahead of the knockout stages.

Seamer Ben Aitchison also returned from injury in the Aston Lark Tour Fixture against India, he claimed two wickets on his T20 debut and could face Durham on Sunday, while George Scrimshaw will be aiming to add to his 20 wickets in the competition so far.

The Opposition 

Durham go into the final round of matches unable to qualify for the knockout stages, but they will be looking to finish on a high note at The Incora County Ground. 

Fast bowler, AJ Tye, has been a standout performer for Durham this season, claiming 20 wickets at an average of 13.90, while fellow quick, Ben Raine, has taken 14 wickets and averaged an economy rate of 7.37 an over.

With the bat, Graham Jones (280) and Michael Jones (277) lead the way, in what has been a difficult T20 campaign for Durham so far.
