Madsen excited for Royal London One-Day Cup

WayneMadsenWayne Madsen is hoping the Falcons can turn red-ball form into white-ball cricket as Derbyshire begin their new Royal London One-Day Cup campaign against Hampshire at The 3aaa County Ground on Saturday (10.30am start).

Derbyshire enter the new domestic 50-over competition off the back of successive LV= County Championship victories, against Gloucestershire and Glamorgan.

Madsen says the tournament will give the squad a chance for a fresh start in the one-day format - and he’s hoping that plenty of youngsters can attend the fixture, as kids go FREE this Saturday.

 “The kids go FREE offer for Saturday is great. I remember watching one-day cricket when I was a youngster and it was always brilliant to come down and watch great cricket,” Madsen said.

“We are really looking forward to the Royal London One-Day Cup starting on Saturday.

“We’ll go into Saturday with a lot of confidence on the back of the wins against Glamorgan and Gloucestershire.

“We will be looking to take our good LV= County Championship form into the competition so there’s no reason why we can’t continue to perform well as we have done over the last couple of weeks.

“It’s a new competition to tuck into and it’s something different because we haven’t played 50-over cricket for a while due to the 40-over competition that took over.

“We’ve got our plans in place that we want to achieve in the Royal London One-Day Cup," Madsen added.

“As it’s a new competition, it will be interesting to see what the totals are like and how teams play it. We will have our own tactics on the back of the 50-over game we played in Abu Dhabi in pre-season in which we played very well.

“There will be a few different things for us to get right.

“We just need to transform our red-ball cricket into the white-ball games.

“We start against a team, in Hampshire, who are an experienced one-day outfit so it will be a good challenge for us.”

Tickets will be available on the gate; however, the best value can be gained by purchasing tickets in advance of the day of the game. Kids go FREE!

Savings of up to £4 per adult ticket are available by purchasing online at, over the phone on 0871 350 1870 or in person from The 3aaa County Ground.

Derbyshire Falcons face Hampshire Royals for a 10.30am start on Saturday 26 July in the Royal London One-Day Cup at The 3aaa County Ground.
