Prospects of play: Yorkshire v Derbyshire (Day 4) — 5 May 2013
What a day at Headingley! We saw records galore broken as Joe Root smashed 236 – his highest ever socre and Jonny Bairstow score 186. Yorkshire ended up on 597-5 with a lead of 122 runs and will look to press home their advantage.
The sun is shining and we expect a full days play at Headingley. It will feel slightly warmer in the lighter winds. Maximum temp 12c.
Yorkshire have made one change from the team that defeated Durham on Saturday. Seamer Ryan Sidebottom has been rested. Jack Brooks takes his place in the line-up.
On resting Sidebottom, first team coach Jason Gillespie said:
“We see it as a great opportunity to give Ryan (Sidebottom) a break taking into account how much cricket we have coming up in the next couple of months. We need to manage our assets as best we can.”
