    Ravi Rampaul hit the winning runs for Derbyshire as they beat Northamptonshire in their County Championship Division Two clash.

    Northants continued their 2nd innings today, Day 4, on 198/8 but just one over from Tony Palladino was enough to snap up the remaining two wickets – Rampaul took 3/53 as they were set 233 to win.

    Derbs’ chase saw several stumbling blocks as they ended up at 224/9.

    However, facing the last ball of Nathan Buck’s 17th over, Rampaul got one down to fine leg for four securing a tense, thrilling victory.
