Durham are fifth in the North Group table, with four wins and four defeats so far, although a win could take them back into the top for after back-to-back losses.
Nathan Sowter is the competition’s leading wicket-taker, with 17 dismissals at an average of just 12, while his economy is a miserly 6.44 after eight games.
Ollie Robinson leads the way with the bat, having made 291 runs, including three half-centuries, at an average of 58.20.
Mickey Arthur gives his take on Derbyshire’s LV= County Championship fixture against Yorkshire and looks ahead to two huge T20s against Durham and Yorkshire Vikings.
Derbyshire tasted a narrow defeat in the red ball game, having fought back strongly from a difficult start, and now attention turns back to the Vitality Blast, where the Falcons face Durham and the Vikings in the space of three days.
Arthur is confident Derbyshire will take positives from the game at Chesterfield into the T20s, and wants to see his side take the game to all comers, no matter the format.
