Derbyshire v Warwickshire, LV= County Championship


Day 3

Keith Barker 5-55 and Maurice Chambers 3-27 were architects of Derbyshire's first innings collapse that saw them dismissed for just 103 in their first innings on the third day and in doing confirm relegation to Division Two for 2014.

With Boyd Rankin joining the attack and looking almost unplayable Palladino suffered a finger injury that prevented him batting on or again in the second innings.

Enforcing the follow-on Warwickshire quickly reduced Derbyshire to 38-5 with Woakes 3-36 taking three wickets straight after lunch and with Rankin 2-16 Jeetan Patel's two overs brought the last two wickets as Derbyshire collapsed for the second time in the day to 120 all out and a loss by an innings and 168 runs.

Day 2

Rain prevented any play before lunch on the second morning and when proceedings finally got underway after lunch, with 21 overs lost in the day, Woakes and Chambers extended their overnight ninth wicket partnership to one hundred and sixty six, a new ninth wicket record against Derbyshire, beating the previous record of 154 set back in 1925 between Croom and Stephens at Edgbaston.

With both batsmen achieving personal highest scores, Chambers fifty eight, his first half century and Woakes reaching an unbeaten one hundred and fifty two, Warwickshire declared on 391-9 after taking three batting points and Derbyshire two bowling points.

In reply, Keith Barker 3-21 and Maurice Chambers 2-21 destroyed the home side’s top order reducing them to 44-5 before bad light brought an early close to the day’s play with only Shiv Chanderpaul 24* offering any resistance.


Day 1

After losing the toss and being invited to bat, Warwickshire lost both openers to the erratic Mark Footitt, with only nineteen runs on the board before Ateeq Javid and Laurie Evans added thirty two in fifteen overs against an attack making good use of the favourable bowling conditions.

Evans 11 was lbw to Groenewald but Clarke and Javid took the Bears to lunch without further loss, on 88-3.

Clarke edged Palladino to Hughes at slip off his first delivery faced after lunch, and after adding thirty one with Woakes, Javid 46 and Poynter 0 fell in the same over to Groenewald.

When the ex Warwickshire seamer then removed Barker 14, for his fourth wicket, Warwickshire had slipped to 148-7 but an unbeaten half century during the afternoon session from Chris Woakes, well supported by Jeetan Patel 34* took Warwickshire to tea on 210-7

Patel went soon after the break for forty but the ninth wicket pair of Woakes and Chambers proceeded to bat through the remainderof the session with Woakes completing his century just before the close when Warwickshire were 285-8
