Meanwhile, Glenn McGrath has named a side packed with former Australia and England internationals for Monday’s Chesterfield Turns Pink Charity Twenty20 (6pm start).
While Damian Martyn. Ian Harvey, Phil Jaques and Jason Gillespie lead the Aussie contingent alongside captain McGrath, Yorkshire and England favourite Darren Gough will also be rolling back the years for the BuyMobiles.net McGrath Foundation XI.
Former Derbyshire player Chris Adams makes an emotional return to one of his favourite old stomping grounds. And there is a rare opportunity to see England one-day specialist Adam Hollioake in action on English shores.
Paul Nixon’s final competitive Twenty20 appearance saw him inspire Leicestershire to finals day glory. Former Nottinghamshire star Darren Bicknell last played at Queen’s Park, for Surrey, 22 years ago.
This unique fixture at Queen’s Park, Chesterfield, timed to follow the opening Test of the Investec Ashes Series at Trent Bridge, will raise funds for the McGrath Foundation, the Cricket Derbyshire Community Foundation and Breast Cancer Care.
Players and supporters will don pink clothing to increase breast cancer awareness in young women, to support the UK Breast Cancer Care charity and to boost the McGrath Foundation’s excellent work in Australia.
