Derbyshire to play touring Aboriginal side this summer

I was delighted to read this morning that Derbyshire will be playing a touring Aboriginal side, led by Nottinghamshire's overseas star Dan Christian, on June 10.

The game, played at the 3aaa County Ground, commemorates the first touring Aboriginal side to this country, back in 1868, 150 years ago for those who don't want to work it out.

The side will also play Surrey, Sussex, Nottinghamshire and the MCC in one-day matches on the two-week tour, which runs alongside that of a women's side.

The touring squad also includes Australian seam bowler Scott Boland and the currently hot D'Arcy Short, whose BBL was so spectacular that it earned him a  gig in the ongoing IPL.

I would think it a game well worthy of interest and attendance, so get the date in your diary now!
