Good win for Seconds

The Second XI under Andy Harris won by nine wickets against Leicestershire at Ashby.

The club site reports on the first two days, but on the final morning Derbyshire's seam attack of Evans, Whiteley and Sheikh bowled out the home side for 121, leaving a target of 174 to win.

This was easily reached with nine wickets in hand, a very good performance.

Talking of young players, and I note on IMWT calls for Tom Knight to play against Worcestershire on Sunday. While I have high expectations for the lad, based on his recent exploits, its asking a lot of him to bowl at serious hitters like Solanki, Moeen and Kervezee. I don't know, maybe the coaches think he could cope, but it strikes me as a tall order. Seven wickets against students is one thing, that's a sizeable step up for the lad.
