As we countdown to the first LV= CC fixture at the County Ground against Nottinghamshire on April 24th, we look at some of the iconic images from Derbyshire’s triumphant 2012 campaign. Today is Tony Palladino – May 3rd, v Gloucestershire.
Tony Palladino claims the wicket of Gloucestershire’s Ed Young to complete his five-wicket haul in the first innings of their LV= County Championship clash at the County Ground.
The paceman’s inspired spell of bowling helped dismiss the visitors for 206, as Derbyshire took a 182-run lead into the second innings, thanks to 101 from Wayne Madsen, and enforced the follow-on.
But Gloucestershire would avoid defeat after New Zealand international Kane Williamson (128) and Hamish Marshall (90) put on a stand of 166 for the third wicket.
Derbyshire couldn’t break through a resilient Gloucestershire batting line-up, and the visitors ended the final day with six wickets still in hand, as the match was declared a draw and Derbyshire maintained their unbeaten start to the new campaign.
