Silver (plate) ware!!

What a remarkable game of cricket was the Plate Final between Derbyshire and Hampshire last night.

With the southern county coasting at 50 for no wicket in the seventh over the game appeared done and dusted. Yet good fielding and a remarkable last over from Mark Footitt led to a one run win, the "Derbyshire Nannes" clean bowling three batsmen in a frenetic finale, despite having started the over with a loose full toss that cost five.

It might only have been a friendly and was pre-season at the end of it all, but a win in such tight circumstances will do a lot of good for our young side.

More later!
