Shiv run-out for 25 as Derbyshire lose
Derbyshire County Cricket Club article.
SOUTHAMPTON, ENGLAND - Hampshire claimed a 46-run victory – thanks to a quick-fire 70 from wicketkeeper Adam Wheater – against Derbyshire in the Yorkshire Bank 40 at the Ageas Bowl.
David Wainwright, Jonathan Clare and Mark Turner all claimed two wickets apiece, but half centuries from Michael Carberry and Wheater helped the home side post 277-8 from their 40 overs.
Dan Redfern hit 53 off 48 balls under the floodlights, but three wickets from Sohail Tanvir restricted the Falcons to 231-8 in reply.
Wayne Madsen elected to bowl first after winning the toss for the first time in this season’s competition – and the Falcons got the perfect start as James Vince was caught by Turner in the deep off Durston without scoring in the third over.
The visitors continued to bowl well during the early stages of the match, as Turner removed Jimmy Adams for 24 with a rising delivery to reduce the hosts to 41-2 after eight overs.
The experienced Carberry led the Hampshire fightback, completing a brisk half century from just 52 balls, but he finally fell on 53 after he was caught down the leg-side by keeper Richard Johnson off Wainwright.
Paceman Turner was once again involved in the thick of the action, running out Sean Ervine for nine shortly after, before producing a superb diving catch off Clare to remove Neil McKenzie for 38 – as Hampshire were reduced to 137-5.
This, however, bought Wheater to the crease and he quickly shifted the momentum towards the home side. He completed his half-century as part of 84-run stand with Liam Dawson - who added 34. Wheater continued his excellent innings, hitting six fours and three sixes in his knock of 70 from just 41 balls, as Hampshire ended their 40 overs on 277-8.
Derbyshire lost Chesney Hughes for 12 early on in reply, but Durston and Borrington began the visitors’ recovery adding 41 runs in six overs, before all-rounder Durston was removed by Dimitri Mascarenhas for 20.
New batsman Shivnarine Chanderpaul joined Borrington in the middle, and together built another healthy partnership, this time adding 51, before both fell with the score on 105.
First, Borrington was stumped by Wheater off Dawson for a career-best 42, before world number two Test batsman Chanderpaul was run out for 25 off the next delivery, to leave the visitors on 105-4 after 20 overs.
Madsen (43) and Redfern, however, combined for a fine 89-run stand to keep Derbyshire in the game, but the Falcons lost a succession of wickets in the final overs to go from 194-4 to 217-8 to end any hopes of claiming victory.
Redfern was the last man out for a well-made 53, but the visitors ultimately fell short of their victory total, closing their innings on 231-8.
