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 Wes Durston –August 16th, v Yorkshire.
Wes Durston celebrates after completing his five-wicket haul against Yorkshire last August, but Derbyshire had to settle for a draw in a rain-effect encounter at Headingley.
The 32-year-old all-rounder finished the opening innings with figures of 5-34 from just 8.4 overs, as Derbyshire dismissed the hosts for 420, with Anthony McGrath top scoring with 104.
Durston would go on to top score with the bat for Derbyshire, hitting 14 boundaries on his way to 84, as the visitors were all out for 268.
Derbyshire were forced to follow-on, but a superb 110 from Usman Khawaja ensured that Karl Krikken’s men would avoid defeat in Leeds as the side continued their momentum from the first half of the season.
