Derbyshire Cricket 2019

I've been watching the South Africa v Pakistan test series (ah, retirement - wall-to-wall cricket, brilliant) and Duanne Olivier who played a few games for Derbyshire last season has been absolutely outstanding, taking something like 25 wickets in 3 tests at an average of less than 15.

Yes, a lot of clubs are interested in him in England. I think we are just a decent No 5 batsman short of being competitive in the Championship this year.

See we are yet to sign our overseas player for the 20/20. Who should we go for..specialist bowler, allrounder or a specialist batsman? The squad looks to me a quality batter light and a quality bowler light, but then most teams probably say that......

A big hitting batsmen. They can make all the difference and it’s something We’ve really lacked.

Derbyshire will be last in all forms of the game this coming season. If ever I feel unenthusiastic about a line up, it’s this coming season.

They won't be last in the Belgian Beer drinking format. We have a crack squad. @eddie

They went for the bowler, but at least it’s a pretty good one.

Yep, let's hope he does well....still think we are light in the batting department....

First game of the season. Good luck guys. Don't fancy playing today or catching a high ball. Need gloves on that ground! Bbbrrrrrhhh! 

Good hour on radio Derby last night. Talking a good game. Some exciting new young bowling talent. 

Agree with above. Always a problem with the batting and losing 4-5 wickets cheaply. Will do well to finish top half. 

We are now only team not to reach 20-20 finals day. That's probly our best chance this year. Come on you Falcons!

Derbyshire won the toss, and it went downhill from there.

Reece out first ball, Madsen bowled third ball.

4-2 after 1 over.
