NOT vs DER Dream11 Prediction
It would be a game of two poles as Nottinghamshire would meet Derbyshire in their next game of the Vitality T20 Blast on Thursday. Nottinghamshire have been in a fantastic form this season as they are the only unbeaten team remaining in the competition. In 7 games they have played this season so far, they have managed to win 5 and 2 games have ended up as a no-result courtesy rain. Derbyshire, on the other hand, have a contrasting season to their opponents. They have only managed a single win after 8 games and lost 5. The game is going to be a dead rubber as Nottinghamshire have already qualified for the knockouts and Derbyshire have already been crashed out of the competition. While the Notts would look to keep up their unbeaten run going to seal the top place in the north division, Derbyshire would try to restore some pride by notching up a win. Let's take a look at the NOT vs DER Dream 11 Prediction for the upcoming fixture.
