Round six of the Virtual County Championship between Glamorgan and Derbyshire is being held by Cricket World and Dice Cricket to help the fans stay tuned to cricketing action from the comforts of their home amid the Covid-19 outbreak.

Glamorgan were completely out of sorts in their round 5 match against Sussex and suffered a 129-run defeat. They were bowled out for just 149 and 164 in both the innings and none of their batsmen could pitch his tent in the middle.

Marchant de Lange claimed figures of 6/49 in the first innings and Michael Hogan bagged a 8-wicket match haul but the bowlers did not receive any support from the batsmen as the team had to contend with just three points from the game.

Glamorgan have David Lloyd and Billy Root in the middle order who can be stubborn on their day and need to switch on for this game.

As a result of the loss, the team has now slipped to the 5th place in the virtual County Championship points table with two wins and two losses from four games. They have 47 points and will face Derbyshire who have climbed to the third spot with two wins and two losses from four games as well.

Derbyshire won their last game against Durham on the back of 150 from opener Billy Godleman in the first innings. Fellow opener Luis Reece took the team to victory in the last essay with a 127-run knock.

The batsmen got ample support from their bowlers with Tony Palladino claiming figures of 6/61 in the first innings while Ravi Rampaul picked up a four-wicket haul in the next essay.

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

Glamorgan- Nick Selman, Charlie Humphrey, David Lloyd, Billy Root, Kiran Carlson, Chris Cooke, Craig Meschede, Andrew Salter, Marchant de Lange, Timm Van der Gugten, Michael Hogan

Derbyshire - Billy Godleman, Luis Reece, Wayne Madsen, Leus du Plooy, Alex Hughes, Matthew Critchley, Harvey Hosein, Fynn Hudson-Prentice, Tony Palladino, Ravi Rampaul, Samuel Conners
