Things haven’t been going Derbyshire’s way this season of the Royal London One-Day Cup. They have won 1 match and lost 2 so far and are 6th in the Group B table with a net run rate of -0.445. They have a tough assignment next as they clash against No.2 placed Hampshire next who are in great form. Hampshire are yet to lose a game this season and have 6 points from 3 matches at a net run rate of +1.453. They will be looking to continue their winning momentum. 

Derbyshire Preview

When they beat Essex by 92 runs in their second match of the season, it felt as if Derbyshire will start building on a winning momentum now. However, they suffered a 39-run defeat against Lancashire in their next encounter. Chasing a small target of 222, they were bowled out for just 182 in 46.2 overs. Shan Masood’s 82 off 117 balls was the only effort that gave their total some respectability. He was playing his first match of the season and his form at No.3 will now be crucial for the team. Mattie McKiernan has made some useful scores down the order and is currently striking it at 100.70. Now, it’s up to the likes of Luis Reece, skipper Billy Godleman, and Harry Came to start getting some runs. 

Derbyshire’s bowling has been good. New ball fast bowler Samuel Conners now has 3 wickets in 3 matches at an economy of 4.39. Ben Aitchison too has 3 wickets and has gone at an economy of just 3.09. Off-spinner Alex Thomson’s spell of 3-25 off 5 overs against Essex helped keep the opposition in check.  

Derbyshire Predicted Playing XI:

Luis Reece, Billy Godleman (c), Shan Masood, Harry Came, Brooke Guest (wk), Anuj Dal, Mattie McKiernan, Alex Thomson, Mark Watt, Ben Aitchison, Samuel Conners

Hampshire Preview

The Hampshire juggernaut seems unstoppable at the moment. After smashing Worcestershire by 44 runs and Kent by 163 runs, Hampshire won their third match by 11 runs against Northamptonshire. On a slow wicket at New Close County Cricket Ground, Hampshire was bundled out for just 199 in 40.2 overs. But their bowlers produced a terrific show and bowled the opposition out for 188. Left-arm fast bowler Jack Campbell impressed again with a spell of 3-17 off 9 overs. Campbell now has 7 scalps in the season at an economy of 2.94.  Opening bowlers Keith Barker (2-45 off 9 overs) and Scott Currie (3-49 off 10 overs) were exceptional at the start for Hampshire. Currie now has 7 wickets at 5.08.

On the batting front, Tom Prest showed his class again with a well-made 51 off 55 balls on a tough wicket. Prest is the leading run-getter for Hampshire this season with 181 runs at an average of 83. Fletcha Middleton and skipper Nick Gubbins are the other two batters to watch out for Hampshire.
 

Hampshire Predicted Playing XI:

Nick Gubbins (c), Aneurin Donald, Tom Prest, Ben Brown (wk), Toby Albert, Fletcha Middleton, Felix Organ, Keith Barker, Scott Currie, Jack Campbell , John Turner
