Madsen hoping capacity crowd can cheer Falcons to victory

WayneMadsenCaptain Wayne Madsen is delighted with the side’s start in the Friends Life t20 competition and he is hoping a capacity crowd can cheer the Falcons onto their fourth straight win, this time against neighbours Nottinghamshire on Friday; 7pm start.

Derbyshire have made a perfect start to their campaign, claiming victories over Yorkshire, Leicestershire and Lancashire to seal top spot in the North Division after three games.

Karl Krikken’s men now welcome the widely-tipped Outlaws to the County Ground, but Madsen is confident that the Falcons can maintain their winning momentum against David Hussey’s side.

“We are over the moon,” Madsen said. “We have won close games which is what you need to do in this competition. We have been in good positions and then been able to get over the line - and to have had different match winners in all of the games has been fantastic.

Falcons v Outlaws heading for a sell out

DerbySales for Friday’s Friends Life t20 East Midlands derby between Derbyshire Falcons and Nottinghamshire Outlaws have already topped 4,000.

There has been unprecedented demand following Derbyshire’s recent victory over Lancashire Lightning, as the Falcons secured their third straight win and moved to the top of the north division table.

Sensational Chanderpaul ensure Falcons extend winning run

ChanderpaulShivnarine Chanderpaul’s unbeaten 87 guided Derbyshire to a thrilling final over victory versus Lancashire, to seal the Falcons’ third straight Friends Life t20 win.

Tim Groenewald picked up career-best figures of 4 for 21 from his four overs to help restrict the visitors to 152-8 at the County Ground.

Chanderpaul led the Derbyshire reply, hitting seven fours and two sixes in his match-winning knock, ably assisted by Wes Durston, Wayne Madsen and Albie Morkel – and it was fitting that it was the West Indies international who hit the winning runs with three balls to spare.

Derbyshire have reclaimed top spot in the North Division, with six points from a possible six, and now take the momentum into Friday’s local derby with Nottinghamshire; 7pm start.

Squad named for home Friends Life t20 opener

FLt20SquadDerbyshire have named an unchanged 15-man squad for tomorrow night's opening home Friends Life t20 fixture of the season, against Lancashire Lightning at the County Ground; 7.10pm start.

Jonathan Clare, whose unbeaten 35 guided the Falcons to victory against Yorkshire, has recovered from a minor injury that kept him out of the Leicestershire game and the all-rounder has been included in tomorrow’s matchday squad.

Karl Krikken’s side currently sit top of the Northern Division and will be looking to extend their winning run to three games after securing back-to-back wins against the Vikings and Foxes in their opening two fixtures.

Albie Morkel insists that the Falcons can continue their excellent start to the competition, and believes a quick pitch at Derby will make for an entertaining fixture under the floodlights at the County Ground.

“It’s going well so far and we have got off to a great start,” Morkel said. “It is always good to win your first game to gain a bit of momentum and luckily we went on to win our first two which has put us in a good position. Now we prepare for Lancashire tomorrow and then Nottinghamshire on Friday. They are two very good sides. Lancashire are a fantastic team, but we are definitely going to be up for it.

“I have only played one game at the County Ground before, a few years ago before they moved the wicket around, so I’m not too familiar with the conditions here but they say it has quickened up this year and there is good carry for the fast bowlers.

“With wickets like this you also tend to get high-scoring contests and that is what people want to see, especially in front of the Sky Sports cameras, so they set to be two very entertaining games – and hopefully we can get two more victories.”

Derbyshire squad in full is as follows:
Wes Durston
Chesney Hughes
Paul Borrington
Shivnarine Chanderpaul
Wayne Madsen
Dan Redfern
Billy Godleman
Albie Morkel
Richard Johnson
Tom Poynton
Jonathan Clare
Peter Burgoyne
David Wainwright
Mark Footitt
Tim Groenewald
