Warwickshire v Derbyshire

At some point we were, like all other sides, going to get a defeat and today was most definitely our turn, with Warwickshire running out easy winners.

Yet there was no disgrace in losing to a very good side, one in form and with strength and experience in depth. We were outclassed and overwhelmed, but there is no reason for massive post mortems on this one. The batting didn't fire and we only looked like getting a total together when Wes Durston and Ross Whiteley were together. It ddn't last long enough though and Warwickshire's impressive batting made short work of the run chase.

More important is for Derbyshire to regroup and be ready for the visit of Glamorgan this week. Marcus North will be back at the County Ground and I will be previewing the game over the next  couple of nights. It is a game that Derbyshire will hope to win and they have the ability to do so.

Today was just one of those days.

Yesterday was a shame, but let's quickly move on. Let's face it, a lot of teams will get beaten by Warwickshire, so it's not worth worrying too much about.

One outcome of yesterday though was that it would be possible to argue that the Borrington/Hughes argument is a lot harder to push when Chesney isn't in the runs himself either currently.

It,s not forced to be Borrington V Hughes. In any case,i don,t think a couple of one day innings compares to several Championship games.
