Derbyshire host Northamptonshire at The 3aaa County Ground in a LV= County Championship fixture, starting on Sunday.
Northamptonshire are unbeaten following one win and two draws from their opening three fixtures and are looking to bounce back to Division One this season, following last year's relegation.
New signing Hashim Amla is set to make his Derbyshire debut after arriving this week, and boosts a side that is looking to close in on the top two places in Division Two, ahead of the start of the NatWest T20 Blast next week.
To mark Amla's only four-day appearance at The 3aaa County Ground, the Club has announced that Under 16s can watch all four days of this game for FREE.
Gates open at 9.30am. Play scheduled to get underway at 11am.
Start Time: 11.00am

Teams will be announced at the toss due to take place at 10.30am.
