After Derbyshire had won the toss and decided to bat, at the County Ground, Northampton, Billy Godleman (125*) and Ben Slater (94) put on a first wicket partnership of 182 in 38 overs.

Derbyshire 265-2 (Godleman 125*, Ben Slater 94)

Northamptonshire 214 (Ben Duckett 57; Duanne Olivier 3-31, Ravi Rampaul 3-36)

Result - Derbyshire beat Northamptonshire by 51 runs

 That opening partnership gave Derbyshire the platform to push on to 265-2.

In reply, Northamptonshire were in some trouble at 14-2, however, Ben Duckett 57, Wicket Keeper Adam Rossington 40 and Rory Kleinveldt 37, gave them some hope in the run chase. However, it was not to be and Northamptonshire were eventually all out for 214, after some outstanding pace bowling by Derbyshire’s  Duanne Olivier (3-31) and the medium paced Ravi Rampaul (3-36).
