Opposition Ones to Watch: Derbyshire Falcons
Ones to watch: Callum MacLeod
Derbyshire’s hard-hitting top order batsman Callum MacLeod is certain to be a key wicket that Lancashire Lightning’s bowlers will be looking to take.
The Scotland international has a strong international and domestic record and hit the headlines last month with a devastating unbeaten 140 from 94 balls with 16 fours and three maximums to see Scotland to a historic, and first ever, six run ODI win over England at the picturesque Grange ground in Edinburgh.
The opener helped the hosts post an imposing total of 371/5 which could not be matched by England despite a brilliant century from Yorkshire’s Jonny Bairstow.
MacLeod, who signed for Derbyshire Falcons last month, made his debut against Lancashire Lightning at the 3aaa County Ground where he hit 44. It wasn’t enough for the hosts as Liam Livingstone hit a stunning century to ease the visitors to a 9 wicket win.
His international pedigree proves how he is capable of powerful and destructive innings, which will test the skill of the Lancashire attack. His 7 ODI hundreds, and his most recent against England, will be fresh in Lancashire’s mind, and he is sure to provide a stern test at Emirates Old Trafford in the upcoming encounter between the sides in the Vitality Blast.
