And destroyed the top order of the mighty Scotland! He should be so proud

Surely young Needham could have been brought onto bowl ahead of Botha? Not much point in playing him otherwise

Needham should certainly be bowling above Botha in that position, i would actually prefer Needham in the side over Botha but since Ant is one of only a few to be scoring runs that ain't an option.

Graeme Welch forced into retirement, i was only thinking the other day how much we've been missing him this year.

Sad to see such a fantastic consistent cricketer hanging up his pads, he carried Derbyshire for a few years and seemed to get better with age.

It all looks bleak to me what we have to come this year. The luck fair enough has been bad with the whole Harvey farce and Rankin and Dean injured but then they are injury proned bowlers.

The team would appear to have gone backwards the determination and strong character that made is a decent unit lost year has gone and team spirit is not what it was

I've said many times but to release Di Venuto and in that manner was a complete joke, he could have led the team and the guys know him and respect him rather than some fresh bloke coming in and suddenly claiming to be leader. Katich may score a few more runs but its not as Di Venuto has ever showed any sign of age and the fact a top division county has snapped him up makes him luck very clever.

good luck to Graeme Welch anyway, pop was fantastic and really was the heart beat

ECB has confirmed that a special playing condition will apply to Derbyshire’s home Twenty20 Cup matches and home floodlit NatWest Pro40 matches.

I feel a bit sorry for Derbyshire they are always on the fringes of county cricket.

They have also been scanalously underrepresented in international cricket over the years, they have had some decent players who could have had decent international careers had they played (in their prime) for other/Southern counties.

For example, John Morris and Chris Adams were excellent batsmen who got flung in at the deep end and had one bite at the cherry - against the Aussies and S Africa in their prime, no less. Kim Barnett did not fare much better. Amongst the bowlers I think Andy Harris should have had a chance, and Tom Lungley now who's having a great season

just been reading the reaction to the Notts game and apparantly Simon Katich stormed out of Trent Bridge after day 1 and Houghton called it "rubbish and embarassingly so" from what i gather there not effort and Houghton has pretty much slated the whole side that played "the variation on a pitch map wiould not have fitted on a screen" is how he decribed our bowling and "nobody had any guts to grind it out" was how the bowling was described.

anyway look like we signed a bloke.....

That Dighton character played a couple of one day games for us back in 2004 I think it was. Both of the games he played were at Bristol!

Simon Katich sounds like hes ready to walk!

after the Notts game he said "we were third rate and people do not pay to watch this rubbish", "i have not come here to waste my time"

Katich infact called all the players together mid innings to give them thee stern words but it all looks pretty bleak

Yes, I remember him well. Decent knock in one game, out cheaply in the other if memory serves me right.

Any news on Phil Weston? He didn't seem to have a particularly good start to the season at Derby. Is he still injured or dropped?

Very sad decline. I thought they were getting back on track last season...

they will be licking thier lips at the thought of 0-60 off 8 overs, its better than the complete tosh like Hodgkinson will ever produce...

someone explain how Warickshire can sign another foriegner yet Ian Harvey is not allowed to play grrrrrrr, why are we actually bothering?!

why the hell i'm even considering going to fridays bloodbath is beyond me but no doubt we will open up with Stubbo, Taylor and Katich in a twenty20 game......

Hi, I'm intending to to to the Somerset match at Chesterfield. Is it far from Chesterfield Rail Station to Queen's Park, is there a bus service nearby?
Any help would be appreciated, I e-mailed Derbyshire a week ago, no response yet. Thanks for your help.

that sounds about right for Derbyshire, to be honest i'm not to sure myself since i've only been to Chesterfield once and i was just a kid back then it also rained all day, gutted!!!!

i think its pretty central though because we walked into the centre while it was raining and it didn't take long at all i remember, i was pretty young though sop not sure but i'll try and ask around!

It's about ten minutes walk, maybe a bit less. Have a look at this map. The cricket ground is marked towards the bottom left, and the train station is where the railway crosses Crow Lane.
Hope it's a good match- it's a lovely ground.
