Due to non-availability of suitable players to take the field, the umpires had to take a decision to cancel the match. Derbyshire CEO Ryan Duquette issued a statement saying, “The cancellation of the match is disappointing. But the safety of players, staff and fans is paramount.

The statement said that those who bought the tickets for this match will get paid for it and the spectators do not need to contact the club for this.
