|Derbyshire vs Nottinghamshire – North Group, T20 Blast|
|Date||June 9, 2023|
|Time||11:00 PM IST, 5:30 PM GMT, 6:30 PM Local Time|
|Venue||County Ground, Derby|
Derbyshire has not been at their best in the T20 blast so far. The team has played seven matches but managed to win only three while losing four. But the team has picked some momentum. After losing the first three games, Derbyshire has bounced back to win three of the last four matches.
Meanwhile, the Notts are placed at the top of the points table. They have won five of their eight matches. Nottingham too had a slow start but picked momentum late in the tournament. The team is on a three-match winning streak.
The surface should be a good one to bat. The pitch will be flat and consistent bounce can be expected which will help the batters score easy runs.
The weather will be cloudy and the temperature will range between 28 and 14 degrees.

The squads are yet to be announced but since both teams picked wins in the last game, we are not expecting too many changes. In case of an injury update, it will be updated here later.
Nottingham has been very dominant over Derbyshire in T20s, winning 27 off the 34 games.
|Batters||Wayne Madsen, Colin Munro (VC), Alex Hales (C). Leus De Plooy|
|All-rounders||Luis Reece, Samit Patel|
|Bowlers||Shaheen Afridi, Zak Chappell, Zaman Khan, Jake Ball|
Alex Hales is one of England’s best T20 batters and has looked in ominous form in the T20 blast, playing some whirlwind innings for Notts. Hales has scored 257 runs in eight matches for his team and will play a crucial role in the coming game.
Colin Munro is another player who has done exceedingly well for the Notts. The destructive left-hander has scored 294 runs in eight matches and played a crucial role in taking his team to the top of the table.
The Pakistan pacer is one of the world’s top fast bowlers going around and is tough to face with the new ball. Afridi is someone who can swing the ball both ways and swing bowlers tend to do well in England.
Haider Ali played a 48-run knock for Derby in the last game. He has been given a new role in the team and has been asked to open. He will surely look to grab this opportunity to make a statement. It should not be a surprise if Ali comes good in the next game as well.
Zaman Khan might no have got many wickets in T20 Blast but he is a decent bowler and we are backing him purely based on what he can do with the ball, despite him being not in the best of form.
