Match Predictions and Team Previews
The two sides last met in Nottingham on 18 June 2021. Notts batted first and were off to a poor start losing 4 wickets for only 45 runs. But a couple of mini partnerships later, they found themselves in the relative comfort of 134 for 6 in the 13th over. Fortunately for Notts, Samit Patel took charge and helped them to a competitive albeit unthreatening score of 152/6 in their allotted 15 overs in a rain-curtailed game. Patel made a top score with his 64 off 32, with 6 fours and 3 sixes. For Derbyshire, Van Beek and Scrimshaw took 3 wickets each.
When Derbyshire replied, they did not have the ideal start, with two wickets lost for only 19 runs. But a 63-run stand between Reece and Du Plooy steadied the ship before another storm that saw them reduced to 134 for 6 in the 13th over. Though the asking rate appeared gettable, Du Plooy had to play a lone hand in the absence of support from other batsmen. In the event, Derbyshire fell tantalisingly short of the target to finish at 150/6. Du Plooy (58 from 35 balls) and Reece (56 from 26) made the only substantial contributions with the bat. For Nottinghamshire, Jake Ball and Samit Patel took two wickets each, while Matthew Carter and Steven Mullaney shared the other two wickets that fell.
- Derbyshire have beaten Leicestershire and lost once each to Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire, Birmingham Bears and twice to Lancashire.
