Derbyshire welcome neighbours Yorkshire Vikings to Queen’s Park, Chesterfield, on the final day of the 2014 Old Speckled Hen Chesterfield Festival of Cricket, in association with Chesterfield Borough Council (2.30pm start).

Australian opener Aaron Finch will spearhead the Yorkshire Vikings line-up for the NatWest T20 Blast fixture.

Finch hit a world-record 156 off just 63 balls in a Twenty20 international against England last year and has established a reputation as one of the most powerful hitters in the world game.

He is the number one batsman in the Twenty20 world rankings and will open the batting in a side also set to include the England duo of Jonny Bairstow and Tim Bresnan. New Zealand international Kane Williamson is also likely to feature for the Vikings after he recently returned from the Test series against the West Indies.

Yorkshire 14-man squad as follows:

Bairstow, Bresnan, Brooks, Finch, Gale, Leaning, Lees, Lyth, Pyrah, Rafiq, Rashid, Robinson, Sidebottom, Williamson.

Derbyshire have named an unchanged 14-man squad for the NatWest T20 Blast fixtures versus Yorkshire Vikings, as the Falcons look to bounce back from Friday night's four-wicket defeat to Northamptonshire. 

Tom Knight will be hoping to continue his good form after smashing 44 off just 18 balls against Northants, which followed his run-a-ball 125 for the Second XI last week.

Wes Durston is currently in a fine run of form, scoring two fifties in his last three NatWest T20 Blast fixtures as well as a well-made 74 in the LV= County Championship game against Essex this week, and will be hoping to return to the side. 

Skipper Wayne Madsen will also be looking to continue his flurry of runs, after scoring two half-centuries in the draw with Essex.

Derbyshire’s 14-man squad in full as follows;

Wes Durston (3)                                Chesney Hughes (22)
Gareth Cross (7)                                Wayne Madsen (77)
Marcus North (8)                               Scott Elstone (10)
Alex Hughes (18)                               Billy Godleman (1)
Tony Palladino (28)                            David Wainwright (21)                       
Greg Cork (14)                                  Mark Turner (6)                                 
Matt Higginbottom (20)                      Tom Knight (27)
