Second Eleven Friendly – Day 1 of 2
Derbyshire 201-0 dec Notts 4-0
Derbyshire batted first on the opening day of this two day friendly at the Notts Sports Club during which not a single wicket fell.
Mattt Lineker and Paul Borrington scored at just over three runs an over to reach 201-0 declared with Lineker reaching his hundred with a boundary from the last ball.
Lineker was the more aggressive of the pair with 78 of his 103 coming from boundaries whereas there were thirteen fours in Borrington's 78.
Notts had four overs prior to tea before a sharp shower left two pitches which had been re-seeded either side of the pitch being used very muddy and play was called off for the day just prior to 5pm.
