THE PREDICTION

Both these two sides maintain a mathematical chance of finishing in the top four of the North Group, however the chances of either team actually making it are miniscule. However, it gives both Northamptonshire Steelbacks and Derbyshire Falcons something to play for here. Due to a positive Covid-19 test, Derbyshire’s squad who took on Essex in a County Championship fixture earlier in the week have been forced to self-isolate and it is expected that a young, severely depleted side will line up against the Steelbacks. With that in mind, a Northamptonshire win looks on the cards.

*This match has been cancelled due to Derbyshire being unable to field a suitable team
