Derbyshire have named a 15-player squad for their Vitality Blast fixtures against Leicestershire Foxes (Saturday, 6.30pm, The Uptonsteel County Ground) and Yorkshire Vikings (Sunday, 2.30pm, Queen’s Park).

New overseas signing, Mohammad Amir, is in line to make his Falcons debut, after starring for Pakistan at the ICC T20 World Cup, joining a bowling attack containing the likes of Pat Brown, Zak Chappell and Daryn Dupavillon.

Batter Cam Fletcher could also return to the squad, after recovering from an injury picked up against Notts Outlaws at Trent Bridge last month.

Leicestershire Foxes have confirmed that 2024 Derbyshire Members and Blast Pass holders can gain free entry to Saturday’s fixture by showing their Membership card at the Leicestershire ticket office on Curzon Road.

The Opposition

Leicestershire Foxes sit third in the Vitality Blast North Group table, while Yorkshire Vikings sit one point outside of the top four, in sixth place.

The Foxes will welcome two debutants into the fold on Saturday night, with New Zealand’s Jimmy Neesham and Ireland’s Paul Stirling having signed short-term deals during the Vitality Blast.

For Yorkshire, they will be relying on a strong top-order, which could contain Dawid Malan, Shan Masood and Adam Lyth, while South Africa wicketkeeper-batter, Donovan Ferreira, will provide added firepower.
