ECB rewards Derbyshire with New Zealand Test warm-up in 2013

Martin Guptill will make his farewell County Ground appearance this coming Bank Holiday Monday versus Warwickshire but, less than a year later, he is likely to return to the County Ground,  this time to open the batting against Derbyshire for New Zealand.

Derbyshire will host the touring Black Caps for a three day fixture on Saturday 4th, Sunday 5th and Monday 6th May 2013.

It is the Club’s third tourist fixture in four years versus top international opposition and the ECB’s decision to award such a high profile fixture to the county reflects Derbyshire's increasing standing within English cricket. It follows the visit of Australia in 2010 and the forthcoming match versus South Africa on Friday 10th and Saturday 11th August this year.
