Match Details

Northamptonshire will lock horns with Derbyshire in the upcoming North Group match of T20 Blast 2021. This match will take place at the County Ground in Northampton.

The game will be played on Friday (July 16) and has a start time of 11:00 PM IST.


Northamptonshire and Derbyshire will resume their T20 Blast 2021 campaign against each other with the competition returning after a week break. Both these sides haven’t been brilliant this season and would like to change their fortunes in the upcoming assignments. With four wins in seven games, both sides are reeling at the bottom half of the points table

Hence, they must find a way to go upwards soon. Although Derbyshire have put up some impressive performance, winning consistently has been an issue for them. On the other hand, Northamptonshire must perform as a unit to improve their campaign.

Captaincy Picks for NOR vs DER

Luis Reece

Luis Reece has been Derbyshire’s stand-out performer this season and would be determined to put up another impressive show. The dasher likes to go after the bowlers from the outset, and scoring consistently hasn’t been a problem for him. He has, so far, mustered 351 runs in 12 wins. Reece has also scalped five wickets.

Matthew Critchley

Reece is certainly not the all-rounder who can trouble Northamptonshire in the upcoming contest. His teammate, Matthew Critchley has also been in fine form, and many eyes will be on him. Critchley has been taking wickets regularly alongside scoring runs. Coming to his numbers, the 24-year-old has scalped 12 wickets alongside scoring 252 runs.
