Derbyshire are favorites to win
Notts Outlaws will take on Derbyshire Falcons in the 2022 Vitality Blast. The game will be played at Trent Bridge, Nottingham starting at 18:30 local time on Thursday June 23rd.
Notts Outlaws produced a very disappointing run chase on Tuesday evening against Leicestershire Foxes with only three players making double figure scores. Opener Alex Hales made 55 runs from 43 balls, hitting five fours and two sixes in his innings. However, Ben Duckett (11) and Samit Patel (12) were the only other two to score over 10. Earlier in the game, Luke Fletcher, Steven Mullaney and Samit Patel had all taken 2 wickets. The Outlaws are in seventh place in the North Group and time is running out for them to make a bid for the knockout stage.
Derbyshire Falcons beat Northamptonshire Steelbacks at home on Tuesday, a victory which takes their winning streak in the tournament to five matches. Their very strong run of form has seen the Falcons move up to second in the North Group and they come into this game only one point behind leaders Lancashire Lightning. The win over the Steelbacks saw the Falcons overtake them in the table and was based on a fine batting effort. Skipper Shan Masood hit another half-century but it was Wayne Madsen who starred with 73 runs from 37 balls.
