I suppose it was 'sods' law
A team that hasn't won at home for 4 years has the good fortune of playing us second game of the season!!
When you look at the scores of our lower order batsmen you wonder if our 'specialist' batsmen are any good

May I thank Beefy for reporting the fourth day's play from Derby with Kev's assistance.

Considering Harris and Roland-Jones were carrying injuries, they batted well and Helm is also to be applauded. We can only hope that their stoic attitude will influence their colleagues.

FROM THE BBC WEBSITE

"Derbyshire won their first home County Championship match since September 2014 with a 101-run victory over Middlesex in Division Two"

The above is nonsense!

Derbyshire won a home County Championship match for the first time since 2014. Quite different from what the BBC would have us believe.

More shoddy BBC journalism!

It has been noted that an attempt was made to deal with the over rate by using three off-spinners during the Derbyshire second innings.

The reality is as a club we in div 2 and carrying lots of old wood. A good clear out is needed and i would back youngsters to learn and come good with time.All have good pedigrees just need oppotunities.

You have made a strong case, Fivestar which the club appears to be currently operating. If the more established participants are not performing then one must consider experimenting with the younger candidates. We may begin to see some more younger selections.
