Top Picks

Leus de Plooy scored a brilliant half-century against Durham the other day. He managed to aggregate 53 runs off 32 deliveries, slamming five fours and two sixes.

Joe Clarke has been the star for Nottinghamshire in this season. He has scored 202 runs in four matches at an average of 67.33. With one century to his name already, Clarke will look to destroy the Derbyshire bowling attack.

Since Luke Fletcher is unavailable for this match, Jake Ball will lead the Nottinghamshire bowling attack. Ball has picked up seven wickets in this season, which makes him the number pick from the bowling department.

Luis Reece opens the innings for Derbyshire. He scored a decent 34-ball 42 in the last match. Although he has a strike rate of 108.75 in this season, Reece can be backed to play a good innings on this track at Trent Bridge. Besides, he is Derbyshire’s most successful bowler this year.
