    Hero Hutton helps Notts beat Derbyshire

    Brett Hutton took ten wickets in the match as Nottinghamshire brushed aside rivals Derbyshire

    Rain dominated proceedings in most of the country, but Notts couldn't be denied at the 3aaa County Ground as they triumphed over Derbyshire.

    Nottinghamshire 508/9d beat Derbyshire 220 & 227


    Nottinghamshire took a step closer to a return to Division One when they beat the weather and Derbyshire to celebrate a crushing innings and 61 run victory on a record-breaking day at Derby.

    Chris Read claimed his 368th dismissal to set a new wicket-keeping record for Notts a day before his 39th birthday as the Division Two leaders bowled Derbyshire out for 227 to move 35 points clear at the top.

    Only Billy Godleman (47) and Ben Slater (44) threatened to deny the visitors but Brett Hutton claimed 5 for 74 to finish with 10 wickets in the match as Notts wrapped up a 24 point haul.

    The biggest threat to Nottinghamshire came from above with heavy rain through the night and first part of the morning ruling out any play until 1pm.

    Derbyshire had to bat through 75 overs to deny them victory and Godleman and Slater began encouragingly as the Notts pace bowlers initially struggled with their line.

    Footitt bowled two erratic overs from the City End and Jake Ball was also inconsistent which allowed Godleman and Slater to settle as they batted through the first 21 overs.

    Hutton had done the damage in the first innings and he made the breakthrough when Slater was tempted into driving at one that swung away and Riki Wessels took the catch at second slip.

    Godleman was the wicket Notts most wanted and Samit Patel got it in the 40th over when the ball ballooned off bat and pad to short extra cover where Hutton dived forward to take a good catch.

    Footitt’s switch to the Racecourse End paid off immediately as he slanted one across Gary Wilson who edged to Read to beat Thomas Oates’s record and Hutton struck again in the fourth over after tea when Alex Hughes played across a full length ball.

    Read had another victim three overs later when Harvey Hosein edged a good one from Ball who knocked out Hardus Viljoen off stump when he played over a full length delivery.

    Tom Taylor and Tony Palladino resisted for 10 overs but Hutton returned to seal a sixth victory of the season with 12.1 overs remaining.
