2nd XI One-Day Trophy - Derbyshire v Lancashire, June 3rd 2013
Derbyshire Second XI suffered a seven-wicket defeat in their one-day Trophy fixture with Lancashire at Glossop Cricket Club.
After losing the toss, Derbyshire produced a good batting display to post 235 on a slow wicket that contained plenty of moisture, with Tom Poynton top scoring with 63 from just 28 balls.
Stephen Stubbings' side hit some powerful shots in the final overs, going at ten an over for the last ten overs to post a competitive total in their third one-day Trophy fixture of the season.
But unfortunately the above par total wasn't enough and as the sun dried and flattened the wicket - helping Lancashire who got their innings off to a flyer, moving onto 56-0 after the opening seven overs.
Derbyshire fought back through the middle overs and begun to claw the momentum back a bit, but in the end the hosts had enough batting to reach the total with just two overs to spare.
