Ten minute delay on Derbyshire Flacons v Dynamos showdown

Wednesday’s Friends Life t20 clash between Derbyshire Falcons and Durham Dynamos will now be televised on SKY Sports and will start at the slightly later time of 7.10pm.

The match between Surrey Lions v Hampshire Hawks, originally scheduled to be televised on SKY Sports, has been postponed as a mark of respect following the tragic death of Surrey batsman Tom Maynard.

Commenting on behalf of the Club, Derbyshire Chief Executive Simon Storey said: “Our sympathy goes out to the family, friends and team mates of Tom Maynard at this sad time. Over and above the personal tragedy, the loss of such a promising cricketer is a loss to the game as a whole.

“Given the circumstances, we agreed to support Surrey’s decision to postpone the game at The Kia Oval and take on the additional televised fixture here at the County Ground.“

The Derbyshire Falcons team will once again wear black armbands in the fixture on Wednesday as a mark of respect.
