Derbyshire cricket 2021


Recommended Posts

The county championship “returns” in the summer, though not with the 2 divisions it used to have. Instead teams have been spit into 3 groups of 6, where they will play each other twice.

The group positions will then decide how the team are split, into 3 divisions. Group winners and runners up in division 1, 3rd and 4th in division 2, 5th and 6 in division 3.

The team who finished top of division 1 will be crowned county champions. Then the 1st and 2nd places teams will play in a 5 day game for the Bob Willis trophy.

We are in a pretty tough looking group 1.

Is this a permanent change to 3 divisions of 6 then? If so, good.

@jimbo jones

At the moment it’s only been agreed for next season. The decision whether to stay with this, or revert back to 2 divisions will be made at a later date.

I like this idea, keeps the games meaningful, with seeding for the next seasons groups being something to play for, when/if they worked that out. It gives every club the chance to be crowned champions at the beginning of every season again, which is definitely a good thing. Especially for the smaller clubs like ourselves, should help against players feeling they need to go to division 1 clubs to get noticed for England too.

And the 5 day Lords final is something they should definitely keep.

So at the end of the 10 game season, 3 divisions of 6 are created based on finishing positions in 2021 but they don't know whether they'll stay like that for 2022? 🤔

Ah no, it’s a 14 game season, the 3 divisions play 4 more games for that season, which would mean in typical ECB fashion, each team won’t play 1 of the teams in their division, why do they always have to do that 🤦‍♂️
 

after the 4 games, the division 1 winner is crowned county champions, then the top 2 play at lords for the Bob Willis trophy.

That makes sense now cheers... yeah just play the 15th game FFS 😂

Personally I think a 10 game 3 division season would be perfect.

Dustin Melton has signed for another year, but due to the change in laws, due to brexit. We’ve had too sign the Zimbabwean fast bowler as an overseas player. 
 

Another rule change for this year is 2 overseas players allowed in all formats, so having him as one who will be available all year is a move I like.

He’s still rough around the edges, but his pace alone means there’s potential there.

Melton signing shows where we believe funds will be at but I believe he can become naturalised after this season?

Maybe we may look at A N Other for the 20/20 if crowds are back. McDermott and another leading 20/20 player for the campaign.

Derbyshire must be the county who promise so much and fail to deliver so often.
