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.
New Additions, Familiar Faces and exciting young talents
Big-hitting Australia international Ben McDermott will join a powerful batting line-up containing the likes of Billy Godleman, Wayne Madsen, Leus du Plooy and Luis Reece, while Matt Critchley will be aiming to add to on his combined 21 Vitality Blast wickets across 2019 and 2020.
The developing trio of Michel Cohen, Sam Conners and Ben Aitchison and will aim to build on promising Bob Willis Trophy campaigns and gain more experience in the white-ball game.
