This County Championship Division Two match between Derbyshire and Glamorgan will be played at the County Ground in Derby.

Derbyshire won their first match against Durham by 125 runs, while their second match against Gloucestershire at Bristol was drawn. They are at the the fourth place in the division two points table with 28 points.

On the other hand, Glamorgan are yet to open their winning account after two matches. They drew their first match against Northamptonshire and produced the same result when they met Gloucestershire at Wales.

Derbyshire had an underwhelming start in the last match against Gloucestershire and could only manage 291 in their first innings, with Tom Lace being the top scorer with 83 runs. Logan van Beek and Luis Reece bagged three wickets each in Gloucestershire's first innings. However, Derbyshire came back strongly in their second innings on the back of a double ton from Wayne Madsen and a century from Alex Hughes.

Although Glamorgan managed to draw their last match against Gloucestershire, the latter dominated the match. The only saving grace for Glamorgan was the four-wicket haul from Marchant de Lange in the first innings. None of the Glamorgan batsmen was able to make a lasting impact.

Derbyshire will go into this match as clear favourites. However, always keep an eye to the weather, as any loss of play due to bad weather may push the result of the match towards a draw.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams.

Derbyshire- Billy Godleman, Wayne Madsen, Tom Lace, Alex Hughes, Harvey Hosein, Matthew Critchley, Anuj Dal, Logan van Beek, Tony Palladino, Luis Reece, Ravi Rampaul

Glamorgan- Nicholas Selman, Charlie Hemphrey, Marnus Labuschagne, David Lloyd, Billy Root, Jeremy Lawlor, Chris Cooke, Graham Wagg, Marchant de Lange, Timm van der Gugten, Kieran Bull
