The Derbyshire Falcons fell to a heavy defeat to the Warwickshire Bears in the Clydesdale Bank 40 at the County Ground on Bank Holiday Monday.
Having posted 242 from their 40 overs, the visitors then dismissed Derbyshire for 137 despite an explosive 57 from Jonathan Clare.
Having won the toss and elected to bowl first, Derbyshire began strongly with Will Porterfield (3) and Varun Chopra (19) falling early, both caught at the wicket off the bowling of Mark Turner.
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.
Heavy overnight rain on Wednesday continued up until 2pm on Thursday, with both matches officially abandoned at 2:30pm.
The abandonment means both sides take two points, a point for each match.
The visitors had started the day on 211-5 with Dan Redfern (64*) and David Wainwright (0*) occupying the crease.
With just a 12 run lead, the visitors were always up against it and their task became all the more difficult as Wainwright fell for just two.
