The race for the playoffs is well and truly on as we get closer to the business end of the tournament with every passing match. With the difference between the team placed at the third spot, Nottinghamshire, and the side placed at the eighth spot, Northamptonshire, being only three points, things are going to get tight in the coming days. With this, the match between Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, which is to be played on 16th August at the Trent Bridge in Nottingham. Trent Bridge is one of the smallest ground in England with an excellent surface to bat on. It's going to be a high-scoring game, and a treat to watch for the fans.
There's no team in the tournament which has had as fickle tournament as the Notts. They've won their matches almost on an alternate basis and currently stand at the third spot in the points table with ten points to their name in nine games.
In their last four matches, they've had a fair share of luck as they won a rain influenced game and took care of Warwickshire with considerable ease.
All in all, Nottinghamshire are one of the better performing teams in the North Group and will not be an easy team to get past. They have a strong batting lineup with experience available throughout, which is backed by some skillful bowlers, who have already proved their worth in the competition.

Comparing the two teams on wins, Derbyshire are neck and neck to Nottinghamshire with the same number of wins as Nottinghamshire. However, because of one more loss, they stand a spot lower than the Notts.
They are coming off a rather poor performance in their last match wherein they were defeated despite chasing a modest total. Bowling first on a decent batting wicket, they restricted Leicestershire Foxes for just 149 in 20 overs, but their batsmen failed to do the honors as they were eventually folded for just 94 on the board.
In the tournament so far, it's been their batting which has haunted them and going into the business end of the tournament, things are going to get difficult for them if they do not improve their batting.

With important matches coming up in the tournament, each win is of vital importance. Nottinghamshire have been in prime form in their last few games and have a well-balanced side at their disposal. On the contrary, Derbyshire have a fragile batting lineup which could be a cause of concern playing away from home. For all those reasons, we think that the hosts, Nottinghamshire, are better placed to emerge on top in the upcoming fixture.
