Derbyshire Falcons have named a 15-player squad for tomorrow’s Vitality Blast fixture Lancashire Lightning at The County Ground (7pm).  

The Falcons will be aiming for a third win in-a-row, having overcome Leicestershire Foxes and Yorkshire Vikings over the weekend, putting them within a point of breaking into the top four.

Samit Patel, Alex Thomson, David Lloyd, Wayne Madsen, Zak Chappell and Mohammad Amir all starred in the back-to-back victories, and will be looking to shine under the lights once again, as T20 cricket returns to Derby.

The Opposition

Lancashire Lightning are second in the North Group table, three points ahead of the Falcons, with six wins in the competition so far.

Openers, Luke Wells and Keaton Jennings, have both passed 200 runs for the Lightning this season, but their overall batting has been strong, with runs evenly shared throughout their top-order.

With the ball, Australia all-rounder, Chris Green, has claimed 13 wickets, while England’s Saqib Mahmood has taken ten. Both will be looking to add to their tally at Derby and strengthen their grip on a quarter-final place.

Pre-Match Talk
