Lancashire's 2ndXI enjoyed a double success in the Twenty20 challenge at Derby with victories over both the hosts and Notts

Squad that played in the 2 Twenty/20 matches at Derby on 25 June 2010 was: Andrea Agathagelou, Karl Brown, Jordan Clark, Mark Chilton, Luke Sutton (capt/wkt), Luis Bentley; Rob Woolley, Wayne Goodwin, Aran Lilley, Daren Powell, Steven Cheetham, Nick Caunce, Adrian Shankar.
1st game v Derbyshire
Lancashire won toss 
Lancashire 120 all out (18.2 overs) J Clarke 36; LD Sutton 29; MJ Chilton 19.
Derbyshire 119-7 (20 overs) SP Cheetham 2-30; A Agathegelou 2-18.
Lancashire won by 1 run

Report: Lancashire won a closely contested game by 1 run against the home side. Having elected to bat Lancashire started brightly and after 11 overs were 83-4. From that position, it was disappointing to be bowled out for 120 in 18.2 overs.

Derbyshire started their chase with confidence but the introduction of the spinners slowed the run rate and the game hinged on the final over, bowled by Cheetham with 10 runs required. Just four runs came from the first 5 balls and the 4 from final ball was not enough. 
2nd game v Nottinghamshire
Nottinghamshire won the toss 
Nottinghamshire 167-4 (20 overs) M Gowland 93; R Stroh 43;  SP Cheetham 4-25
Lancashire 168-7 (19.4 overs) KR Brown 60; A Agathagelou 59; AA Shankar 21
Lancashire won by 3 wickets
Having won the toss the Nottinghamshire batters took control with Stephen Cheetham (4-25 from 4 overs) easily the pick of the bowlers. In reply Karl Brown (60), Andrea Agatathagelou (59) and Adrian Shankar (21) lead the Lancashire run chase and steered the side to an exciting finale, with victory acheived with 2 balls to spare.
