Wayne Madsen’s side have enjoyed a successful start to their Friends Life t20 campaign over the last week, winning three of their opening four fixtures, and the side will now be hoping to take that momentum into their Championship fixture with Durham.
Derbyshire currently sit bottom of Division One, but a victory this week can move them off the foot of the table. Tom Poynton returns to the four-day squad after impressing while on Second XI duty, but paceman Mark Turner will miss out due to injury.
Durham will be without Captain Paul Collingwood due to injury and seamer Graham Onions who has been included in England’s 13-man Ashes squad for the opening Test at Trent Bridge. In Collingwood’s absence, Mark Stoneman will lead the side.
Derbyshire’s squad in full is as follows:
The Falcons will next be in home Friends Life t20 action against Yorkshire Vikings on Sunday, 14th July at Queen’s Park as part of the Hill Dickinson Chesterfield Festival of Cricket.
