NOR vs DER Team Previews


The Northamptonshire Steelbacks played their last encounter against Yorkshire Vikings yesterday at Leeds. They were able to achieve win in this game with a big margin. Batting first, Northamptonshire put up a total of 180 runs on the board for the loss of 6 wickets. Then the Northamptonshire bowlers performed a useful restriction job on Northamptonshire as they bowled out the entire Yorkshire team for a score of 102 runs in 15.2 overs. It was a thumping 78-run win for the Steelbacks.

The former skipper of Yorkshire in T20 cricket David Willey made a successful comeback to the Northamptonshire side as they dashed away any hopes Yorkshire had of making it to the quarterfinals of the competition. The hero for the Northamptonshire performance was the pacer Tom Taylor who picked his career-best figures of 5 for 29 from his quota of 4 overs. The skipper Willey not only hit a breezy 28 but also picked up a couple of wickets with his left-arm swing bowling. This terrible batting performance was a repeat for Yorkshire after they slumped to 68 all out against Derbyshire in their last game.

Willey won the toss and decided to bat first. The German international Justin Broad was the top run-getter for Northampton scoring 47 from 32 balls. But this was not the only good contribution during the match. With this victory, the Northampts have managed to reach 5th position in the points tally. In the 11 games they have played so far in the competition, they have won 5 and lost 6. They have 10 points at the moment and have a net run rate of +0.100. Some useful contributions from the bat for Northamptonshire in this game included Ricardo Vasconcelos hitting 37 runs and Emilio Gay hitting 40 from 25 balls at the top of the order.

The Northamptonshire opposition in this game is Derbyshire who also played their last game against Yorkshire. In this North Group encounter played at the Chesterfield venue on 18th June, Derbyshire trounced Yorkshire by a massive margin of 144 runs. Batting first, Derbyshire scored 212 runs for the loss of 4 wickets from their quota of 20 overs. The Yorkshire team was in trouble right at the start of their innings and were bundled out for 68 runs from 11.2 overs. The winning streak of the Yorkshire Vikings was brought to a halt as they were fairly thrashed in this game.

The stunning batting display by Derbyshire was started by Haider Ali who hit 59 runs from 41 balls. Later in the inning Leus du Plooy and Brook Guest piled on the agony for Yorkshire hitting 93 runs from just 34 balls. These batters took the Derbyshire Falcons to a score of 212. During his stay at the crease, Du Plooy hammered 5 sixes in his 66-run knock from 32 balls. Guest also cleared the boundary on 3 occasions while scoring 39 runs from 18 balls. Ben Mike had to take the brunt of most of this onslaught giving away 74 runs from 4 overs.

Whatever little hopes the Yorkshire batting line-up had of chasing down this massive target were dashed in the first powerplay as they went to 29 for 5. Eventually, the entire side was bowled out for 68 runs within 12 overs. This was the sixth consecutive victory for Derbyshire against Yorkshire. The 5000-strong crowd was witness to the mayhem. Surprisingly at the halfway stage of the Derbyshire innings, the score was a reasonable 70 for 3. Although Wayne Madsen was dismissed early it was to make no difference to the Derbyshire fortunes.
