Good effort by second team

Having declared on their overnight total, Derbyshire's second team took control against Worcestershire at the 3aaa County Ground today.

The visitors were bowled out just after lunch for 172, with Mark Turner taking four wickets, Tom Taylor three and Ben Cotton two.

They made a better fist of their second innings, ending on 132-2 when bad light stopped play. That's still 119 behind with a day to go, in a game that is a reversal in fortunes of the senior fixture between the sides.

Here's hoping for a morale-boosting win for the lads tomorrow, with encouraging individual performances to boot.
