Derbyshire set for Barbados pre-season

Kensington OvalDerbyshire are set for a return to Barbados as Karl Krikken’s men follow the same pre-season formula that worked so affectively ahead of the recent title-winning campaign.

The squad will make for the Caribbean on Monday, 11th March to return on Saturday, 23rd March after an intense period of warm weather preparation for the new season.

The trip marks the fourth consecutive year that Derbyshire have toured Barbados following successful tours in 2010, 2011 and 2012.

A combination of English and local opposition are set to take part in the schedule which will see Derbyshire contest a brace of two-day fixtures, a 40 over match and the showpiece Twenty20 tournament at the Kensington Oval.

Krikken keeps quiet faith with rising stars: By Richard Rae (The Cricket Paper)

Karl Krikken and team membersDuring the celebrations which followed the confirmation of Derbyshire’s promotion to Division One of the LV= County Championship, chairman Chris Grant made one thing clear.

While they would support head coach Karl Krikken in strengthening their squad, neither he nor ‘Krik’ had any intention of tearing up the blueprint which had brought them success by blowing the playing budget on a couple of marquee signings.

So far the Club has been as good as their word. In the last couple of weeks the young players who contributed hugely towards the winning of the Division Two title, including Dan Redfern, Tom Poynton, Wes Durston, Ross Whiteley and Jon Clare, have been rewarded with new and improved contracts.

Burgoyne and Slater dominate in Zimbabwe

burgoynebattingPeter Burgoyne (pictured) and Ben Slater have been piling on the runs in their maiden first-class appearances for the Southern Rocks in Zimbabwe.

Both have been plying their trade in the Zimbabwean domestic competition since the start of October, and the flashes of brilliance both showed during the limited-overs fixtures have been well and truly eclipsed by the performances of both on days 1 and 2 of their first four day contest.

Slater, opening the batting against the Mashonoland Eagles, made 89 in an innings that included nine boundaries, struck all over the billiard table outfield of the Harare Sports Club.

When Slater was finally dismissed in the 70th over as the fourth man out, it meant Burgoyne came to the crease; and the Denby born all-rounder showed no signs of nerves on his first class debut.

Whiteley makes England sixes bow

Hong KongRoss Whiteley made his senior international debut for England in Hong Kong during the weekend – but it was South Africa that took the trophy.

The Derbyshire all-rounder contributed cameo contributions of 15*, 14* and 22 during the Karp Group Hong Kong Sixes tournament at Kowloon Cricket Club. But he couldn’t prevent England from crashing out on Day 1 of the tournament following defeats to hosts Honk Kong and to eventual winners South Africa.

England, who began the competition brightly with a ten wicket victory over Australia, also lost to the Netherlands in their Plate Semi Final on Sunday, a match in which Whiteley didn’t feature.

South Africa, meanwhile, romped past Hong Kong and Pakistan to lift the trophy for the second time in four years.
