Prior to last season, Derbyshire were the only county not to appear at Vitality Blast Finals Day, but that all changed in September 2019.
After picking up seven wins in the North Group, including victories over Lancashire, Leicestershire, Worcestershire and a double over Yorkshire, Billy Godleman’s side went on to beat Gloucestershire in the quarter-final.
Ravi Rampaul finished as the tournament’s leading wicket-taker, while the top order of Godleman, Luis Reece, Wayne Madsen and Leus du Plooy struck a club-record 14 half-centuries between them.
With Dominic Cork returning as Twenty20 Head Coach, along with the overseas signings of Sean Abbott and Ben McDermott, the Falcons will be looking to challenge for silverware in 2020.
