A good display of cricket for the day. by saying that me Kirana along with Ajay Ahire in the commentary and the scorer Yogesh are signing off. will see in the next match until then GOOD NIGHT.
Ajay: George Scrimshaw is the hero for Derbyshire...He was taken away for belters before the last over but he kept his nerves in control and delivered a classy last over and sealed a deal for the home side. Tim David's fighting innings go in vain. And with this win Derbyshire are still there in the race for the knockouts...

19.5 G Scrimshaw to R Jones
W WICKET!!! Ohh what a wicket this is for the home side. 6 is needed now for Lancashire to seal the game. But what a comeback this has been by Geroge. He runs in from over the wicket and he bowls it on a fuller length on the off stump line. Jones goes across and looks to work that one on the leg side. The ball sneaks past the blade and he misses it on the pads. Huge appeal and it has been given out by the umpire.
19.4 G Scrimshaw to R Jones
4 FOUR!!! Jones gets the penultimate four here. The thick outside edge of the bat but all counts in the end. They needed a dot ball but it rolls away for a four. Good length on the off. Jones swings and gets the outside edge past the keeper for a four.
