Left-arm spinner, Mark Watt, will remain with Derbyshire for the Royal London Cup campaign.

Watt, 25, has impressed in his Derbyshire stint so far, claiming 13 Vitality Blast wickets, including best figures of 3-29, while also featuring in LV= County Championship games against Middlesex and Sussex.

He will remain with the Club throughout the Royal London Cup group stage, as well as the LV= County Championship fixture at home to Durham in September, with his availability subject to international commitments with Scotland.

Head of Cricket, Mickey Arthur, said: “Mark’s intensity and aggression on the field has been a key asset for us so far, and I’m pleased he will be staying with us for the Royal London Cup.

“We’re targeting progression from the group and to surprise a few teams and having Mark’s international 50-over experience can only help us.”

Watt added: “I’ve loved my time back with Derbyshire so far and I’m looking forward to competing in the Royal London Cup.

“Working with Mickey, Ajmal and the coaching team here has really helped my development, and playing more white ball cricket around the international schedule can only help me ahead of the Twenty20 World Cup at the end of the year.”

One-day cricket is back in the height of summer!

Derbyshire compete in enthralling 50-over cricket this August, including the visit of Yorkshire to Queen’s Park. Find out more and book tickets for all home matches now.
