Derbyshire begin their LV= County Championship campaign against Lancashire at The 3aaa County Ground; starting on Sunday 19 April.
Lancashire enter the new campaign with a fresh approach after the appointment of Ashley Giles as their new Director of Cricket during the off-season.
The county, who were relegated from Division One last season, begin the campaign as one of the bookies' favourites for an immediate return to the top flight after securing the signing of Australia paceman Peter Siddle.
Tom Smith has been named as Captain in place of Glenn Chapple who has moved into a player-coach role, while South Africa batsman Ashwell Prince continues to turn out for the Red Rose County.
Gates open at 9.30am. Play scheduled to get underway at 11am.
Start Time: 11.00am
Lunch: 1.00pm – 1.40pm
Tea: 3.40pm – 4.00pm
Teams will be announced at the toss due to take place at 10.30am.
