Grand day out in London for Derbyshire on Sunday, when they play Surrey in the YB40. It is not yet beyond the realms of possibility that we could qualify in this group and a good display will keep the 'feel good' factor going for a while longer.
Karl Krikken has announced the following squad:
While acknowledging the suggestion to keep Ben Slater involved from a contributor the other day, I suspect that he, Johnson and Turner will miss out, together with one from Wainwright, Redfern and Borrington.
Surrey have rested several players for the game, including Steven Davies, Jade Dernbach, Jon Lewis and Zafar Ansari. Their squad is as follows:
Zander de Bruyn
Freddie van den Bergh
There's a good mix of youth and experience in that squad, but Derbyshire, as they have shown with wins over Sussex and Nottinghamshire recently, have enough talent to beat anyone if they remain focused and play their best purposeful cricket
I'll forecast a win here, as long as we can take early wickets and remove the dangerous Roy and Solanki.
If we manage that, there's even more to play for than we envisaged a week or so back
