Both Northamptonshire and Derbyshire are looking for their maiden win in this tournament.
Northamptonshire will be up against Derbyshire in the Group 1 contest of the English One Day Cup on Sunday. It has been a terrible last week for Northamptonshire, as they lost their first match against Glamorgan, whereas the other two were washed out due to rain. They had chances of winning their 2nd fixture against Yorkshire, but rain had different plans and spoiled the party.
On the other hand, Derbyshire made one of the worst possible starts in this tournament. They lost their first 3 matches and their fourth fixture was washed out due to rain. There have been some notable performances in all the matches, but that didn’t help Derbyshire in securing a victory.
