Teams Preview

Northamptonshire Preview

It’s been one of the toughest seasons this year for Northamptonshire as they have managed to win just 4 games out of 12 they played. With 9 points in hand, they are at 8th place in the points table and almost out of the race to qualify for the playoff stage this season. While batting first against Lancashire, the team’s batting lineup collapsed down just 142 runs in 20 overs. Only Rob Keogh managed to score 56 runs in 48 balls in this team’s total. Lancashire easily managed to chase down the target of 143 runs and registered a comfortable victory by 8 wickets over Northamptonshire.

The team’s batting has good depth but failed to perform in some previous games. Ricardo Vasconcelos is the team's highest run-scorer while the bowling department is still struggling to help the team win the games. Bowlers remain expensive in the death overs during the last few matches. The team hasn’t used their squad strength fully so far this season and they will try to execute those plans properly against Derbyshire on 16th July to change their records of the last few games in favour of them.

Key players for Northamptonshire: Ricardo Vasconcelos, Josh Cobb, Mohammad Nabi, Wayne Parnell

Northamptonshire Predicted Playing XI:

Ben Curran, Ricardo Vasconcelos(wk), Josh Cobb(c), Rob Keogh, Saif Zaib, Mohammad Nabi, Brandon Glover, Tom Taylor, Wayne Parnell, Graham White, Freddie Heldrich.

Derbyshire Preview

With just 4 wins in 12 games and 9 points with them, Derbyshire are at 7th place in the points table just above Northamptonshire and they have nothing to lose from now onwards in the group stage of this year’s tournament. Derbyshire have defeated Birmingham Bears in the 9th game but lost the last game against Worcestershire. While playing against the Bears, with the help of George Scrimshaw’s 3 wickets for 23 runs and Fynn Hudson- Prentice’s 2 wickets on 19 runs, they have restricted opponents on 167 runs. 

During the chasing, Tom Wood’s brilliant 63 runs from 48 balls and Leus du Plooy’s 57 runs from 34 balls, they have easily chased down the target. But in the last game against Worcestershire, their batting lineup failed to chase down 168 runs again and lost the game by 14 runs. The overall team is performing well with the bat and the team has managed to score a few big figures on the board at an early stage of the tournament but failed to continue that in the latter part of the tournament. They will try to solve this issue against Nottinghamshire while playing on 16th July.

Key players for Derbyshire: Luis Reece, Matt Critchley, Leus du Plooy, Logan van Beek

Derbyshire Predicted Playing XI:

Luis Reece, Harry Came, Tom Wood, Matt Critchley(c), Leus du Plooy, Fynn Hudson-Prentice, Brooke Guest(wk), Mattie McKiernan, Logan van Beek, Jade Dernback, George Scrimshaw.

Venue Details

County Ground from Northamptonshire will host this match. This ground is a home ground for Northamptonshire and has a capacity of 6500 and has conducted just two international games so far.

Toss: To Bowl

This ground has conducted just 2 ODI matches so far but hasn’t conducted any T20Is. This ground is mainly used for domestic purposes like Vitality Blast and County Championship. The pitch favours batsmen, and it’s easy to chase down the targets on this ground. At this location, whichever team wins the toss will want to bowl first.

NORTH vs DERBY Winning Prediction

Both teams haven’t performed well this season and both have lost the chances to qualify for the knockout stage. Derbyshire have a good record against Northamptonshire in this season as well as in the past few matches. The batting depth of Derbyshire will be the key source of their win against Northamptonshire. Northamptonshire has good bowling but failed to restrict opponents while bowling in death overs, which cost them in a few games. By looking at the numbers and stats of the last few games, Derbyshire have an upper hand over Northamptonshire.

We predict that Derbyshire will defeat Northamptonshire.
