Derbyshire Cricket 2018

Recommended Posts

I left with a handful of overs to go, and was delighted to find that Cartwright had been dismissed late on to to leave Middlesex 86-3. This leaves Derbyshire a tantalising 7 wickets away from that rarest of birds - a home win in the County Championship.

The last one was, I believe, in 2014. Derbyshire did achieve 3 victories in the Championship last season, but all three were away from home.

Oh yes. A chance of a win is not to be sneezed at.

Finally the 9th wicket falls, was starting to get worried.

Woo hoo. Only Derbys could suffer a 9th wicket partnership of 106!

Good rain kept away, thought just their luck would scupper them.

Sounds like promising early signs, resolved to go a bit more this year; as Carnero says Derbyshire la la la :lol:

Managed to watch about 3/4 of the game over 4 days. Thoroughly deserved victory. We look to have as good a team as I have seen at Derbyshire for at least 4 years but the squad looks very thin. I reckon we are 2 players short of being a promotion winning team.

Just got home. Excellent win and thoroughly deserved.

The wicket very much flattened out over the last two days but the bowlers stuck at it and were eventually rewarded.

Certainly a batsmen and a spinner short for me. would be nice to just be in the mix after the last couple of seasons which have been dire.

Good stuff.. made hard work of it though. Weather stayed OK too.

Just read the report on Cricinfo. Talk about 'damned with faint praise'.

Nice to record their first home win in 1,306 days on my birthday. I'll raise a glass to them.
