Host Durham will be looking to seal their place in the playoffs when they take on Derbyshire in the North Group game of T20 Blast competition at Riverside Stadium in Chester-le-Street on Friday.

In the previous match, Durham suffered defeat at the hands of Leicestershire via DLS method. With this result, Durham are lying at fourth place with 11 points to their name. The home side will be looking to get back to winning ways against Derbyshire.

On the other hand, Derbyshire have struggled to deliver positive results as a unit. With just 7 points to their name, the county side will need to put on a decent show in this fixture.

Wicket-keeper Ned Eckersley also chipped in with crucial cameo at the end to help Durham post 115 runs for the loss of four wickets in 15.1 overs.

In the bowling department, the onus will be on the likes of Matty Potts, Ben Raine and Harry Crawshaw to deliver crucial breakthroughs.
