Derbyshire lose

Derbyshire were beaten by Warwickshire in the final of the T20 last night in Barbados, after posting a useful 140-7 in their innings, recovering from 40-5 at one stage.

Jon Clare hit four sixes in a 32-ball fifty and had good support from Dan Redfern and Ross Whitely, but conditions became increasingly difficult as dew fell following heavy rain. With the ball increasingly resembling a bar of soap, Warwickshire ran out victors by eight wickets.

It was a young Derbyshire side in the final, with no Madsen, Groenewald or Footitt, but the players can be proud of their efforts over the first few days of what will be a long season.

More later, but on this evidence we will battle this year.

I have said for some time the boy Whiteley can hit a ball and should be given a go in the 20/20. Everybody just says that he has not been brilliant in the Second XI though.
