Derbyshire blown away as Broad, Fletcher and Paterson steam in

Derbyshire 86 for 8 (Fletcher 3-23) trail Nottinghamshire 256 (Slater 107, Clarke 66, Hudson-Prentice 4-36) by 170 runs

Ben Slater celebrated back to back centuries before Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire collapsed spectacularly as 18 wickets fell on the opening day of the LV= Insurance County Championship match at Derby.

The former Derbyshire opener scored 107 off 191 balls, sharing a third wicket stand of 163 in 39 overs with Joe Clarke who made 66 from 95 balls. But the innings imploded with eight wickets falling for 62 runs as Fynn Hudson-Prentice claimed career-best figures of 4 for 36 and Ben Aitchison took 3 for 27 to bowl Notts out for 256.
