Derbyshire will be locking horns against Nottinghamshire in the 69th match of the Vitality T20 Blast 2023. The County Ground in Derby will play host to this North Group encounter.
Derbyshire are struggling in this year’s competition. They have played seven games and only managed to win four of those. They are sitting at seventh position in the points table. Derbyshire beat Warwickshire convincingly in their last game.
The bowlers went on a journey as Warwickshire posted a mammoth 203 on the board. In reply, Luis Reece (57), Haider Ali (48) and Leus du Plooy (66*) contributed heavily as they got across the line with three balls to spare. They will be looking to carry forward the winning momentum.
Nottinghamshire, meanwhile, are the table-toppers of North Group. They have 10 points under their belt, having won five games out of eight. They beat Durham in their previous fixture to win three on the trot.
After being asked to bat first, Nottinghamshire posted 187 on the board at the end of their 20 overs, thanks to Colin Munro’s 28-ball 49. Samit Patel and Jake Ball grabbed two wickets each as it helped them defend the total successfully. They will be hoping to repeat the same performance on Friday.
