Warwickshire v Derbyshire Pro 40

There's not been many times that I've said this in 2009, but that was pretty poor today.

In a game that smacked of "end of season", there were very few bright spots for Deryshire. Chesney Hughes made his debut and bowled encouragingly (until he had one over too many), while Greg Smith had a decent all round match, but aside from a decent knock from Graham Wagg against his former employers, there was little else for those hardy fans who travelled from Derbyshire to cheer.

Warwickshire's total got to respectability thanks to a breezy partnership between two of our old boys, Ant Botha and Rikki Clarke and after Garry Park went first ball and Chris Rogers soon afterwards, Derbyshire never looked to be remotely in this game.

Nantie Hayward again was expensive and appears destined to go down as one of our least successful overseas imports. With Tim Groenewald, Ian Hunter and Steffan Jones all rested, it was, probably, one of our worst three performances of 2009

Enough said really...
