Derbyshire have named a 15-player squad for their opening Metro Bank One Day Cup fixture against Durham at Seat Unique Riverside, starting tomorrow (11am).
Batter, Wayne Madsen, is available for this fixture, having been released by Manchester Originals, and he joins an in-form batting lineup including Harry Came, Luis Reece, Haider Ali and David Lloyd, all of whom were key in the win over Sussex Sharks on Wednesday.
Suranga Lakmal claimed four wickets in the win and will be hoping to make another big contribution with the ball up north.

Durham have picked up three points from their opening three games, with a defeat to Worcestershire followed by blockbuster win over Sussex Sharks and an washout in Wales.
In that win over Sussex, Durham posted a score of 427-9, with both Alex Lees and David Bedingham scoring centuries. Both players will be looking to replicate that form against Derbyshire this Friday.
Liam Trevaskis has taken seven wickets for Durham, at least four more than any of the Club’s bowlers, and will be key if they are to pick up their second win of the competition.
Luis Reece says Derbyshire will be going into the Metro Bank One Day Cup fixture against Durham full of confidence, having tasted victory against Sussex Sharks.
Reece has scored half-centuries in each of Derbyshire’s opening three games and made 92 in the win over Sussex Sharks at The Incora County Ground, which saw Derbyshire move to within two points of the top four.
Having picked up their first victory of the 50-over campaign, Reece now wants to keep that form going against Durham tomorrow.
“Durham have had a lot of success in red ball cricket this season, but this is a difference competition,” he said.
“They have plenty of players who can find form in every format, but we’ve got to bring this confidence and skill we’ve shown today, because if we play our best cricket, there’s no reason we can’t go and make it two wins out of four.
“It’s great to have got the first win, now we need to get some momentum together and go up to Durham, try to get a win there and then we’re right back into the competition.”
