Nottinghamshire will take on Derbyshire in the League Match of Vitality Blast T20 which will be played at the Trent Bridge in Nottingham. The T20 cricket is finally back in England and nothing better than some T20 Blast cricket.
Nottinghamshire Outlaws have already qualified for the quarter-finals of the tournament and have not lost a single game so far. The first two games of them were abandoned due to rain and now they are on a five-game winning streak and they would definitely like to continue the same whereas Derbyshire Falcons are still fighting for that spot in the quarter-finals and have won three of their eight games till now in the tournament. The Falcons have everything to play for but Nottingham will definitely be the stronger side in this game.
Pitch Report – The average 1st innings T20 score at this stadium is 173 runs which suggest that this is going to be a decent batting wicket with some assistance to the pacers too.

5 Must-Have Players in the Squad

NOT vs DER Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Ben Duckett (Price 9) will be the wicket-keeper of our squad. Duckett has not been in a great form but he has scored one half-century in the tournament and will definitely be a much better option than the rest of the option in this category.
NOT vs DER Dream11 Batsmen
Alex Hales (Price 10) and Joe Clarke (Price 9) will be our batsmen from Nottinghamshire. Clarke has been absolutely fantastic and has been scoring at an outstanding average of 64.5 this season. He has scored 153 runs in the last three innings as well and would like to continue his form whereas Hales is a world-class player and is in a decent form as well with 112 runs scored in the last three innings. Both of them just cannot be dropped.
Wayne Madsen (Price 9.5) will be our batsman from Derbyshire. Madsen is the best batsman of the side and has been in a really good form as well. He has scored 113 runs in the last three innings and is a handy bowler too. He will definitely be picked for this game.
NOT vs DER Dream11 All-Rounders
Imad Wasim (Price 9) will be our all-rounder from Nottinghamshire. Wasim has bowled well and has picked four wickets in the three games he has played this season. He is a genuine wicket-taker with his left-arm spin and will be picked.
Matt Critchley (Price 9.5), Luis Reece (Price 9.5), and Alex Hughes (Price 9) will be our all-rounders from Derbyshire. Critchley and Hughes have definitely grabbed their form in the last couple of games for their side. Critchley has scored 58 runs and has picked a wicket in the last couple of games whereas Hughes has scored 61 runs and has picked three wickets in his bowling. Reece, on the other hand, will open the batting and bowl his overs as well. This trio should be picked.
NOT vs DER Dream11 Bowlers
Jake Ball (Price 8.5) and Luke Fletcher (Price 8.5) will be our bowlers from Nottinghamshire. Ball has bowled really well in the tournament and has picked nine wickets in his bowling so far whereas Fletcher has picked eight wickets in his bowling. Both of them are genuine wicket-takers and will be picked for this game.
Dustin Melton (Price 8) will be our bowler from Derbyshire. He has picked a couple of wickets in the couple of games he has played and can be a good pick in this game.
