Opposition

Kent: Yorkshire’s opposition have progressed to the semi-final stages courtesy of an abandoned game between Glamorgan and Essex. Their campaign has seen a number of batsmen making valuable contributions with Sean Dickson and Jordan Cox in the runs. One danger man for the Yorkshire bowlers to watch out for is Grant Stewart, who hit a remarkable 112 runs off just 57 balls against Middlesex.

Preview

The White Rose opened their campaign with two emphatic victories; defeating Roses rivals Lancashire by 210 runs before going even better, beating Nottinghamshire by 264 runs.
