Derbyshire became the third team in three matches to declare their first innings against Bangladesh A, having used up their 100 overs just after Chris Rogers brought up his century. A half-century from John Sadler and Dan Birch's 40 also helped to propel Derbyshire to 298 for 6 after choosing to bat.

The pick of Bangladesh's bowlers was Mosharraf Hussain, who took 3 for 69 from 22 overs, while there was a wicket each for Dolar Mahmud, Rubel Hossain and Shakib Al Hasan.

The visitors then lost two quick wickets, both of them to a Kevin Dean-Thomas Poynton combination. But from 12 for 2, Shakib and Junaid Siddique were mounting some resistance, to end the day 46 for 2.
