At Derby, August 11-13 (day/night). Drawn. Toss: West Indians. First-class debuts: C. A. J. Brodrick, M. D. Sonczak, J. P. A. Taylor.
With the first floodlit Test a few days away, several West Indians found their touch against the pink ball under the Derby lights. Kyle Hope reached his side's first hundred of the tour after Powell had narrowly failed, then Shai Hope and Chase added 196, reaching their centuries from consecutive deliveries. When Holder opted for batting practice in the second innings despite a huge lead, Powell made up for his near miss, before discovering a niggle and retiring. These were promising signs for the West Indians, although they were facing a young and inexperienced attack. Their bowlers also adapted well, apart from Gabriel, who bowled only 13 overs in the match and sent down 24 no-balls. Derbyshire gave first-class debuts to three Academy players, including 19-year-old Callum Brodrick, who hit 52 amid the rubble, and seamer James Taylor, just 16, alongside his older brother Tom; they were the first siblings to play together for Derbyshire since Alf and George Pope in 1939.
