Shan Masood-led Derbyshire have lost the T20 fixture against India as the visitors declared a smooth seven-wicket victory over the Pakistani skipper’s team. Deepak Hooda’s 59 and 36* helped India assist themselves, sparing 20 balls.
The warm-up match ahead of India vs England three-match T20I series saw a different squad than the line-up in Ind vs Eng rescheduled fifth Test match. This is because the warm-up t20 was scheduled for July 1, and the Test, which is the residue of last year’s five-match test series pre-IPL, got underway on the same day.
India tour of England 2022 will now witness a three-match t20I series with the matches to be played on 7th, 9th, and 10th July at Southampton, Birmingham, and Nottingham. Before the T20I series kickstart, India will play another warm-up match against Northamptonshire Club.
Getting back to India vs Derbyshire, Masood’s batters added 150 on the board with the loss of eight wickets from 120 balls. The skipper and the top-order batter Luice Reece departed earlier, and the third-placed batsman Wayne Madsen could add only 28 runs. After not a solid start, the Derbyshire club saw the middle-order batters and finishers taking control.
Hilton Cartwright, Brooke Guest, Alex Hughes, and Mattie McKiernan totalled 27, 23, 24, and 20 runs respectively. After the Indian batters walked to chase, Sanju Samson raised the hopes with 38 runs at the opening slot coming from 30 balls. Raturaj Gaikwad could not settle for more than three runs but middle-order Hooda and Yadav’s blistering runs coiled up the chase in 16.4 overs.
As far as the bowlers are concerned, India’s Umran Malik and Arshdeep Sign collected two wickets apiece whereas, Derbyshire’s Mattie McKiernan had one, and Ben Aitchison enjoyed two. The rest were left wicketless.
