Northamptonshire would want to forget the disappointing start to their English One Day Cup campaign and look to start afresh when they take on Derbyshire on Friday. They conceded a total in excess of 350 in their first game and in the end, succumbed to the scoreboard pressure. Overseas recruit Jason Holder and skipper Alex Wakely did put a fight but couldn’t get near to the stipulated target.
Derbyshire would come out looking for a win to start their 50-over format campaign running. They have in the ranks exciting talents such as Leus du Plooy to get off to a favourable start.

3:30 PM (IST) on April 19
Head-to-head (last five List A fixtures)
