Derbyshire have named a 14-player squad for their opening Vitality County Championship fixture of the season against Gloucestershire, starting at The County Ground tomorrow (11am). 

New Club Captain, David Lloyd, will lead out his side in first-class cricket for the first time, and could be joined by the likes of Aneurin Donald, Jack Morley and New Zealand international, Blair Tickner, in making his red ball bow for the Club.

After an impressive winter playing overseas, Wayne Madsen could make his 450th career appearance for Derbyshire, while Luis Reece is in line to make the 100th first-class appearance of his career.

The Opposition

Gloucestershire have seen a winter of change, with new Head Coach, Mark Alleyne, hoping to get off to a strong start.

At the top of the order, Australian international Cameron Bancroft will be tasked with setting the tone, while the experienced Chris Dent will once again play a key role for Gloucestershire.

With the ball, Matt Taylor will be looking to build on his 20 wickets at an average of 25 last season, and will be looked at as the leader of the Gloucestershire attack.
