County Ground in Derby is an ideal cricketing pitch. The wicket has something for both-bat and ball. The pitch provides assistance to the bowlers when the ball is new and gradually starts helping batsmen as the day wears on. The average score in the first innings at this venue is 240+. So, expect a fighting total tomorrow. Also, the team batting first here has won 8 out of 9 games so the flip of the coin will also be crucial in tomorrow’s clash.
