Derbyshire v Leicestershire day 1

Just one wicket today for Derbyshire in a severely truncated day's play with less than eleven overs bowled.

24-1 with three days to go leaves a lot of cricket in the match and it will be just like the good old days of three day cricket and contrived finishes. The good thing being, of course, that in batting last if the conditions allow it, Derbyshire can dictate the result of the game by chasing (or declining) a target.

Derbyshire announced an unchanged side and in all honesty, why wouldn't they? Change a team after two wins from two and there's little merit or common sense. I've covered this in previous posts this week so don't need to go over old ground...

Other than that, there's little to report tonight. Glamorgan's batting failed again today and if they carry on at this rate they'll be changing their one day name from the Welsh Dragons to the Binary Boys...

Until tomorrow. Hopefully there's more cricket to report. Surely there can't be less?

Didn,t even bother today. I think Footitt deserved another chance,so no great surprises there. I am a tad surprised we didn,t elect to bat,having won the two previous games batting first. Time will tell if it was a wise decision.

Good to hear Karl Krikken on Radio Derby this morning but not good to hear him calling us Derby. It's Derbyshire please Karl!

Typical british weather had to arrive at some point to derail our good start to the season.
