A fixture steeped in history and tradition, Queen’s Park has often been the scene of some truly memorable Vitality Blast moments between the Falcons and Yorkshire Vikings.
Captain Billy Godleman scored match-winning half-centuries in Chesterfield in 2018 and 2019, will the skipper again lead from the front in 2021?
The winning streak in Chesterfield began in July 2017, when a 28-ball 42 from Wayne Madsen, and three wickets from Imran Tahir helped the Falcons to a three-run victory.
The ground witnessed a thrilling contest in 2018, when Derbyshire hit the winning runs with just one ball to spare.
Matt Critchley struck the winning boundary off Tim Bresnan, on his way to a scintillating 38 from just 17 deliveries, while Godleman led the way with an unbeaten 71.
Ravi Rampaul had earlier taken 4-19 to limit the visitors to 166-8 from their 20 overs, as the Falcons extended their streak to three matches.
Just as it did a year prior, the 2019 contest went down to the final over with Godleman (70 not out) and Critchley at the crease.
With five balls to spare, Derbyshire’s five-wicket victory was confirmed when David Willey bowled a wide down the leg-side.
A New Era
Internationally-renowned coach, Mickey Arthur, leads the Falcons into a new era of Derbyshire cricket, with experienced players with proven quality and a young core hungry for success.
Pakistan international Shan Masood joins an established top-order, with the big hitting of Leus du Plooy, the innovative strokeplay of Wayne Madsen and the leadership of captain Billy Godleman making them a match for any bowling attack.
Young fast bowlers like George Scrimshaw, Mikey Cohen, Sam Conners and Ben Aitchison are all itching to make their make in Twenty20 cricket, as Derbyshire look to reach Finals Day for the second time in four years.
