They have already beaten Derbyshire earlier this season and are looking stronger with every game.

Derbyshire Preview

Derbyshire have won their last 4 matches and have good winning momentum with them. Interestingly, their last loss came against Northamptonshire. In their previous game, they beat Birmingham Bears by 7 wickets while chasing a target of 160.

Captain Shan Masood continues to lead from the front and is the team’s leading run-getter with 366 runs at a strike rate of 140.76. He’s got solid support in Leus du Plooy (285 runs at 154.89) and Wayne Madsen (236 runs at 143.90).

On the bowling front, Derbyshire has been largely dependent on medium pacer George Scrimshaw who now has 15 scalps at an economy of 8.48. Left-arm pacer Hayden Kerr (12 wickets at 9.81) and left-arm spinner Mark Watt (10 wickets at 7.92) are the other two consistent performers for the team. Leg-spinner Matt McKiernan, who returned with figures of 2-18 off 3 overs in the last game, has also been pretty good.
 

Derbyshire Predicted Playing XI:

Shan Masood (c), Luis Reece, Leus du Plooy, Wayne Madsen, Alex Hughes, Brooke Guest (wk), Matt McKiernan, Hayden Kerr, Mark Watt, Samuel Conners, George Scrimshaw

Northamptonshire Preview

The Northants have a really solid batting unit that has performed consistently throughout the season. Chris Lynn has been their main superstar this year and has been in absolutely sensational form. The Australian big-hitting opener has already pulverized 379 runs at a strike rate of 166.22. His presence at the top will be crucial for the team.

The other two batters who have done well for Northamptonshire this year are skipper Joshua Cobb (226 runs at 158.04) and Ben Curran (220 runs 130.17). They would love all-rounder James Neesham to bang a few more runs down the order.

Northamptonshire’s bowling has mostly been dominated by Ben Sanderson (12 wickets at 8.49) and Tom Taylor (12 wickets at 8.31). Neesham has done a fine job too in the middle overs and has taken 10 wickets at 8.38 while left-arm spinner Graeme White (8 wickets at 7.96) has impressed with his tight lines. 
 

Northamptonshire Predicted Playing XI:

Chris Lynn/Emilio Gay, Ben Curran, Joshua Cobb (c), Saif Zaib, James Neesham, Rob Keogh, Lewis McManus (wk), Tom Taylor, Graeme White, Nathan Buck, Ben Sanderson

Weather Conditions

The County Ground in Derby is a really good batting surface that remains true throughout the game. This gives the side batting second an advantage. Seamers will get some help early on, but batters should have a better time here again, as they have throughout the season.

The weather at Derby will be cloudy but no rains are expected.
 

Venue Details

The average score by the team batting first in this venue is 162. However, we have already seen some big totals being posted here this season, including a 200-6 by Birmingham Bears. The team batting first in this game will look to post a total of around 190-odd runs.

Toss: To Bowl

Of the 3 matches played at the County Ground, Derby, this season, 2 have been won by the team batting first. The team winning the toss here is likely to bat second.

In the last 5 matches between Derbyshire and Northamptonshire, 2 have been won by the Northants and 3 by Derbyshire. But the Northants will take confidence from the fact that they have already beaten Derbyshire once this season and have a solid batting unit. Derbyshire’s best chance is if their bowling unit manages to keep the opposition’s batting in check.

Expect Northamptonshire to emerge victorious in this game.
