Northamptonshire have been extremely inconsistent so far but 2 wins in the last 2 games have seen them head in the right direction that is towards the playoff spots. They will be looking to make it 3 out of 3 which will get them back in the playoff contention.
Derbyshire made an incredibly bad start to the tournament losing their first 3 games. Since that they have managed to pull things back, but it still is a huge task to get into the playoffs. Each game is a do-or-die game for them and they will look to take it one game at a time and get a win in this one.
Northamptonshire have been quite inconsistent this season, and their position in the points table shows that. But their recent results have given them a ray of hope to still qualify for the playoff spots. With 2 consecutive wins they will want to make it 3 in 3 and make a strong claim to the playoff spots.
After winning the toss and deciding to bat first, they would be extremely happy. Posting a total of 180 losing 6 wickets, they did a fantastic job in the 1st innings. With some supreme power hitting, the batsmen played for the strike rate and not for individual scores. Justin Broad was the top scorer with 47 runs off 32 balls.
With a really good score to defend, the bowling department did an exceptional job defending the target. Bowling out the opposition for 102 runs within 16 overs is a fantastic job. They took wickets at regular intervals and did not let the opposition build any momentum. Tom Taylor was the pick of the bowlers picking up a rare 5 wicket haul.
Key Players: Tom Taylor, Justin Broad, David Willey, Emilio Gay
Emilio Gay, Ricardo Vasconcelos, Saif Zaib, David Willey(c), Justin Broad, Lewis McManus(w), Chris Lynn, Tom Taylor, Andrew Tye, Ben Sanderson, Freddie Heldreich

Derbyshire made a really poor start to the competition with 3 losses in 3 games. Since then they have been extremely inconsistent as they have not managed to keep a Winning streak to solidify their spot in the points table. They will however look to build on their win in the last game and make an effort to reach the playoff spots.
After losing the toss and being put into bat first, Derbyshire went all guns blazing. Posting a total of 212 for the loss of 4 wickets was an incredible achievement. The middle order came extremely good for them as their blitz knocks pushed them to such a huge total. Leus du Plooy was the top scorer with 66 runs in 32 balls, which included 4 boundaries and 6 sixes.
With such a mammoth total to defend the bowling department made easy work of the oppositions batting line up. Dismissing them for a score of 68, they bowled them out within 12 overs. Zak Chappal was the pick of the bowlers, picking up 3 wickets for 16 runs in just 2 overs.

The weather will be perfect to play cricket. The maximum and minimum temperatures will be in the 17°C - 14°C range, with just 5% chances of rain.
The County Ground in Northampton, England will be hosting this encounter. The capacity of the ground is 6,500.
This is a high-scoring ground but gets difficult to bat on in the second innings. The teams here prefer to bat first and set a target as the pitch gets difficult to bat on in the second innings.
The team that wins the toss would want to batl first. With the pitch getting tougher to bat in the second innings, batting first is much easier on this pitch. In the last 7 matches played here, the team batting 1st has won 4 games, whilst the team batting 2nd has won 3 games.
Both teams have had similar fates and are also next to each other on the points table. Both have been showing signs of really good form and will be a mouthwatering contest. With wins in the last games they've played, they have really done well with their NRR as well. It is a do or die game for both the teams, and a loss for either of the teams will make it extremely difficult for them to reach the playoffs.
We predict that Northamptonshire will beat Derbyshire.
