|LEICESTERSHIRE V DERBYSHIRE T20 game 2 22/05/15
|DURSTON C.HUGHES AMLA ELSTONE THAKOR A.HUGHES KNIGHT POYNTON WHITE WAINWRIGHT COTTON GODLEMAN CORK FOOTITT
I,ve listed the squad in the team I would go with and in batting order. This is a fixture we must be looking to win,though I fancy Leics will not be the pushover they usually are in the four day game. It would be nice if they could arrange another collapse from 20/0 to 29/7 but I think they might prove more competitive in this format. With Lancs on the horizon I would not play Foots but ...
|Derbyshire Facebook and Twitter
|I follow all cricket teams on Twitter and Facebook and by far the team that tweets the most is Derbyshire. Its mostly the same thing over and over again which doesnt bother me but I noticed they are doing 10 day countdown till the first home game. Someone has too much time on the hands as today was 9 days to go and 9 wicket win over Notts
Will number 1 be the number of wins we had last season?
The club can tweet all they want its upto them but to me its just a waste of time as no one is goin ...
|It's shameful that Mark.Footitt has been asked to bowl at the players in the nets as if he's some sort of bowling machine and he should be grateful as he plays for Derbyshire. He should be in the team not being used as practice for the batsman. There can't be anyone out there who would believe if he was playing for any other side he'd automatically be in the side. It infuriates me no end
|New County Cricket Structure
|Seems like the ECB have decided the countygame needs more b****ring about with. Fewer Championship games, more 50 overs and two divisions of T20. All presumably because the England team are no good at 20 and 50 over stuff.
When the ivory tower dwellers asked us a couple of years ago what we wanted we must have got the wrong answer. Though the "survey" was so confusing, probably designed as such, it was difficult to realise what I had actually said I wanted. Probably in the end I opted ...

|Are we having one this season? I want to try on before I buy rather than order online
|Life Without Maddo
|This is an event neither he nor we are used to. Maddo has an almost unbelievable record of remaining fit and free from injury but for a while,all that has changed. I,m no medical expert but a possible return date of June 21st following his finger surgery seems a mighty optimistic target, even if he is a quick healer.
It will be a test for the batsmen who do play and also the new captain. Even though Maddo has not quite fired on all cylinders thus far, all the signs were his best form was onl ...
|YORKSHIRE V DERBYSHIRE T20 15/05/15 GAME 1
|DURSTON AMLA C.HUGHES THAKOR GODLEMAN A.HUGHES ELSTONE POYNTON KNIGHT WAINWRIGHT COTTON FOOTITT CORK
Big chance for us today with Yorks having several players out of action. I will be surprised if Foots plays. Placing any other considerations on one side,this is not really a format he is best suited too,though occasionally he has done the trick. We have a decent looking batting line up with several players capable of fast scoring and a mix of seam and spin. Tom Poynton will keep wicket and th ...
|Can We Do Better?
|Looking round the various social media sites,some people are questioning our inability to take enough wickets to win matches.Quite often we have let good positions slip to the point where we have either lost or drawn matches that should have produced a more positive result. I think there are several reasons,none of which would necessarily stand alone as the cause of the problem but collectively are more significant.
One obvious reason is the fact we are struggling with injury. Some are easily ...
|I would go with something like this;
1) Durston - if fit
11) Palladino - if fit
Obviously, we haven't been great at this format and it's not my favourite, but off to Headingley Friday, so we need to improve!!
|DERBYSHIRE V NORTHANTS CC2 10/05/15 (game4)
That is the official squad and I would hazard a guess the first eleven listed will form the starting eleven.
Wes Durston is still out of action but reading the club website there are a couple of things that puzzle me a little. The wording of the preview article suggests Dino and Tom Taylor were "rested" for the match against Glammy. If this is true then I find it rathe ...
