Northamptonshire skipper Alex Wakely revived his team’s chances of pulling off a record-breaking run chase after another Wayne Madsen century set up the prospect of a thrilling finish to the Division Two match against Derbyshire at Chesterfield.

Madsen made 116 and all-rounder Matt Critchley 51 as Derbyshire posted 342 to set Northants 314 which would be the highest fourth innings total at Queen’s Park.

Dan Wheeldon dismissed England batsman Ben Duckett to claim his maiden first-class wicket but 68 from Luke Proctor and an unbeaten 48 from Wakely took the visitors to 174 for 3, 140 short of their target..
