Derbyshire Falcons have named a 14-player squad for their Vitality Blast clash with Northamptonshire Steelbacks, starting tomorrow (3pm).
Wayne Madsen has scored half-centuries in each of his opening two T20 innings of the season and will be hoping to keep that form going against the Steelbacks, with Leus du Plooy set to captain in a Vitality Blast game at The Incora County Ground for the first time.
Zak Chappell has shown quality with the ball so far, taking four wickets at an average of 15.50 and an economy rate of 7.75, while Pakistan international Zaman Khan and George Scrimshaw have combined for seven wickets in two games.
Wicketkeeper-batter, Brooke Guest, returns from a minor hamstring strain to replace Aneurin Donald, who returns to Hampshire.
