Some odd choices in the team today. Klokker after an impressive match for Warwks last season is playing and a kid, just 17, is playing, Redfern, as is Oliver Saffell.

Never heard of him before today. First class debut at 26 is a bit rare these days.

I believe he's been very prolific in Derbyshire league cricket for some years with a lot of people in that area banging the drum for him to get a chance at Derbyshire.

Akhil Patel is the brother of Samit (Notts) isn't he?

Is he just a batter, or does he bowl as well?

This is a very interesting point, and one that maybe shouldn't be hidden away on a Derbyshire thread. Cricketers seem to be picked up by counties through youth teams and academies. Anyone developing late or missed at this stage has no chance. Certainly in Essex the County Club pays absolutely no attention to league cricket performance. Is this the case with other counties, and is it a problem in English cricket more important than the 'too many counties' argument when it comes to mirroring Australian cricket?

I think it's been this way as long as I can remember. There can be the odd one that breaks through - for example, David Byas did so at Yorkshire, but he basically ended up scoring double tons for Scarborough in order to get noticed.

Yorkshire did also occasionally dip into the leagues to use older players in the dim and distant past (i.e the 1970s) - Steve Silvester, who debuted at 25, and Phil Hart, who debuted at 34 spring to mind - but this kind of thing seems long gone now.

Sadly I think a lot of counties may argue that when they've taken a chance on league players it "hasn't worked" - or league players have to "prove" themselves in just one or two games for the seconds.

Actually, I believe buried in the hoo-ha over Gough and Moxon's arrival at Yorks was some sort of announcement about looking into league cricket for talent, as well as the Academy. Can't for the life of me remember when or where, though

HAHAHA, Maty, you'll never guess who I met today...

(I'll give you a clue: it was in the Fenner's nets. And he watched me bowl. And then taught me how to deliver a flipper!)

(Another clue: He may have been captaining Derbyshire today...)

His flipper was rubbish

Nah, we just chatted about cricket in general, how Derbyshire were looking, and he was a really nice guy! Very affable, made sure of saying his farewells when he had to leave the indoor area.

Both Frederik Klokker and Dan Birch made centuries on Derbyshire debut in the same match - also both scored maiden first class CC centuries - in Birch's case on first class debut. Must be a Derbyshire first?

well we have now tasted a victory!

we bowled well mostly but who knows what happened at the death or why Otis Gibson makes runs every time against us?!

Kevin Dean is bowling rather well at the minute but has changed the way he bowls some way while Lungely has made this partnership the Pollock and Ntini of the domestic world with all his wickets from long hops!!!

As for batting the Derbyshire drama never really happened with Harvey finishing the job well but seriously no way should Stubbo be left out this man has been a fantastic player over the last few years!!
