Derbyshire vs Australia 3 day practice match Predictions and Preview

Australia’s game against Derbyshire in derby preview

This ashes 2015 series is being talked about a lot by the media and the fans but not necessarily in a good way. First it was reported that the visiting team even refused to join the after match celebration because they were sad after losing the first match in the series. The Australian media and former crickets were really harsh on the team. But now their team is back at the top again after they won the second test at Lords. It was a big win, as the hosts never looked comfortable in the entire match.  Now the situation is almost opposite and the media is criticizing the host for their poor performance. It is still time before the second test and England team is trying hard to repair all their flaws. Their opposition Australia in the meantime will play a practice match against the Derbyshire in Derby from tomorrow.  This will be a 3 day game so it will be another good practice match for the Michael Clarke’s boys. Australia is now looking at the test series win and they do not want the England team to get back in the series. There are bunch of reasons why Australia vs Derbyshire game is not just a practice match for the visiting team.

The Derbyshire team is one of the strongest teams in the England domestic cricket. They have lots of international level players in the team, so this will not be an easy practice match for the mighty Australians. They are also taking this practice match very seriously; their entire test team which is going to play the 3rd test against England is playing for this practice match. So from that one can see that they want to win this match and give their players a good match practice before the all important second test. The player who Australian team management wants to perform badly is Shane Watson. The player who was always seen as one of the biggest match winners is not in form recently and that is why former cricketer Allan Border said that either he shows some good performance or make ways for the young talent. But Captain Michael Clarke still thinks of him as a match winner and ready to fight for him. He has a good chance to comeback into form in this Australia vs Derbyshire practice game.

Mitchell Johnson who is the main reason why England batting line up scrambled in the 2nd test in Lords is also playing in the game. He is in great form and after Glen McGrath he is the only Australian bowler who is able to win both One day international and test matches for his national side. The 33 year old is now creating fear among the England batsman. He is definitely going to scare the Derbyshire batsmen too and if he manages to get some wickets then it will cause even more fear on the host’s mind. The game is going to be played on a wicket which is known to favor the fast bowlers, so Australian team is very hopeful.

England team is working hard to get back in the series in 3rd test. There will be 5 test matches in this Ashes series. If visitors lose the Australia vs Derbyshire practice game then that is definitely make the hosts more confident. Australian team does not want that to happen and that is why this practice game is so important now. The fans are also looking forward to the match. Let’s hope the rain will stay away from the match.
