Footitt: I can't wait to show what I can do

MarkFootittMark Footitt hopes his selection for the England Performance Programme will act as a platform as he targets an England Lions tour in the New Year.

Footitt has enjoyed his best season to date, claiming 100 wickets in all competitions at an average of 20, which has earned him his call-up to the ECB England Performance Programme in South Africa this winter.

 “It’s been a good year and it’s nice to get recognition for that with a place on the England Performance Programme in South Africa,” Footitt said.

“It’s an exciting prospect and I can’t wait to get out there. I’ve given myself the best chance and I’m thrilled to be selected and recognised for my efforts this year.

“I don’t think it’s sunk in really yet. I was told yesterday morning and I was – naturally – thrilled, but I had to concentrate on the match with Leicestershire.

Pujara: It's a great feeling to win with Derbyshire

Cheteshwar PujaraCheteshwar Pujara revealed that words of encouragement from partner Billy Godleman helped him play a match winning role against Surrey at the Kia Oval.

Pujara ended unbeaten on 90 from just 105 balls during an unbroken 154-run partnership with centurion Billy Godleman (104 not out) as Graeme Welch’s men chased down 251 to seal their fourth LV= County Championship win in five fixtures. 

I thought about it yesterday when we had to chase 251 and thought this was the perfect time to come forward,” Pujara said.

“I was batting really well in the nets, to be honest, it was just that I was not getting a start. 

“When I went in, I was timing the ball well and there wasn’t much swing, so I thought if I play my natural game and if the ball is there, I will just go for it.

Welch focuses on Lancashire showdown this Thursday

GraemeWelchGraeme Welch says Derbyshire are playing good cricket and are therefore in confident mood ahead of the Royal London One-Day Cup clash versus Lancashire at The 3aaa County Ground this coming Thursday; 2pm start.

Derbyshire sit second in Group A, a point behind early leaders Gloucestershire, after securing victories in their opening two fixtures – against Hampshire and Leicestershire – before rain prevented hopes of making it three from three last Thursday away at Worcestershire.

"We were bitterly disappointed," Welch said speaking after the no result at New Road.

"We played some good cricket again and restricted them to probably 10-15 under par on a decent wicket. We thought the wicket was worse than it was but the lads said it was actually a good pitch.

"I would have fancied us chasing that down.

"We said before the game we owed Worcestershire one because they beat us twice in the t20 and in the Championship, when we weren't playing our best cricket. We have come here and we were the better team on the day.

Madsen hoping to continue good 50-over start

WayneMadsenWayne Madsen has been pleased with his and the teams start in the Royal London One-Day Cup and hopes their good start can continue versus Lancashire at The 3aaa County Ground next Thursday (7 August); 2pm start.

Derbyshire have begun the rebranded tournament in ideal fashion, having convincingly defeated both Hampshire and Leicestershire, by 136 runs and seven wickets respectively, in their opening two fixtures, before rain forced no result in the clash versus Worcestershire.

Captain Madsen has played a leading role in their early-competition success, hitting his maiden List A century in the opening match versus Hampshire, before backing it with a second the next day against Leicestershire.

"I feel great – not necessarily because of the hundreds but because we have played well," said Madsen.

"We have got ourselves into the habit of winning by taking the momentum we had from the last two Championship games and carrying it into the new competition.

"We set this up in Abu Dhabi in the pre-season – how we wanted to go about batting and bowling – and spoke about them again this week and have carried out our plans both times. It's extremely rewarding to do that.

“It feels really good to be back at Derbyshire,” Welch said.

“I love it here. It doesn’t seem like two minutes I’ve been away, to be honest and I have fond memories of playing here.

"I’ve always had it in mind that Derbyshire was somewhere I wanted to return to. There seems to be a good vibe around the place and I’m looking forward to getting down to work.
