Derbyshire signed Dal in 2018 and he made his debut in a Twenty20 game against Worcestershire at Derby, top scoring with thirty-five out of 135, and impressing everyone with his speedy running between the wickets and his outstanding fielding.
His first class debut followed that season and he played his first List A game in 2019. He made a fine ninety-two against Middlesex at Derby in 2019, and, proving to be a useful change bowler, took 3-11 against Sussex at Derby later in the year.
Having made a significant breakthrough in 2021 when he made his maiden hundred, 106 against Leicestershire at Derby, featuring in a county sixth wicket record partnership of 227 with Brooke Guest, he had an outstanding season in 2022 scoring a remarkable 957 first class runs at an average of 73.61 despite never batting higher than number seven in the batting order.
At Worcester in July 2022, he scored 55, 112 not out and took one for 35 and five for 40 in a remarkable match-winning performance.
In 80 games Dal has scored 2,213 runs and taken 56 wickets, receiving his County Cap in 2022.
