Reaction – Jonny Tattersall

“We played pretty well (himself and Malan) to keep us just four down all the way through to close.
“We’re really pleased with how it’s gone, and Dawid’s obviously shown his class there and gone through the gears.
“I played second fiddle and was trying to give him the strike and keep ticking over. He’s so easy to bat with, and it takes the pressure off me.
“We really grinded them into the dirt, and hopefully we can do the same tomorrow.
“Early on with the new ball it was definitely doing a bit, as you would expect. That’s standard Headingley really.
“It was quite dark throughout the day, and visibility wasn’t the easiest at times. Their left-armer (Cohen) was a bit slippery.
“You just had to be patient, work hard and get through your first 30 balls. Once I did that, it seemed to just flatten out a bit. That may have been their bowlers tiring. We just managed to get on top of them and didn’t give them chance to build many maidens.”

6.04pm That’s close.

5.56pm Malan moves to 145 and Yorkshire 280-4 after 78. Tattersall 64. And we’re off for bad light I’m afraid.

5.27pm Tattersall reaches 50 off 122 balls with 5×4s. 237-4 in the 71st.

5.21pm Yorkshire move to 230-4 after 69 overs – 21 remaining in theory. It would be a surprise if we see them all given the overcast conditions, but the light hasn’t really changed much throughout the day. Malan has been sparkling, and is 113. Tattersall 46.

4.56pm HUNDRED!! That’s a fabulous knock from Malan in challenging conditions. 136 balls and 15 fours. His driving has been a particularly feature. Yorkshire 209-4 after 63 overs, with Tattersall 39. Partnership 104.

4.38pm Almost the shot of the day – Malan on drives Hughes for four to move to 81. Yorkshire 186-4 in the 61st over.

4.24pm We are about to get underway again. No overs lost.

4.08pm It has just started raining at Emerald Headingley. The covers are coming on.

Tea report Yorkshire have made an encouraging start to their Bob Willis Trophy clash with Derbyshire at Emerald Headingley, led by home debutant Dawid Malan.

The England T20 batsman has reached tea on day one unbeaten on 75 not out, the standout of his side’s 178-4 from 58 overs.

Malan lost partners Adam Lyth and Harry Brook, for 31 and nought, in the space of four balls in the seventh over of the afternoon as Yorkshire fell to 106-4 in the 35th.

But he and Jonny Tattersall (34 not out) have since taken the sting out of Derby’s success with an unbroken 72-run stand inside 24 overs.

These two sides are the top two in the North Group, both having won their first two games. Derby are four points clear at the top.

Left-arm new ball seamer Michael Cohen bowled an impressive early-afternoon spell, getting Lyth caught behind by Harvey Hosein and Brook caught at first slip by Wayne Madsen as Yorkshire lost their third and fourth wickets.

Malan went on to reach 50 off 87 balls, including eight fours. His eighth four, gloriously straight driven, helped him reach a third half-century in Yorkshire colours.

The first was in last month’s friendly against Durham here before he hit 73 to help seal victory over the same opponents in the first round of the Bob Willis at Emirates Riverside.

3.52pm – Tea Yorkshire advance from 82-2 from 28 overs at lunch to 178-4 from 58. Malan 75 no and Tattersall 34 no have shared an unbroken 72. That’s a decent session for the White Rose.

3.45pm Closing stages of what has been a decent afternoon for Yorkshire even though it started shakily with two wickets in four balls for Cohen. Malan (74) and Tattersall (31) have shared an unbroken 68. 175-4.

3.17pm After the loss of those two quick wickets, Malan and Tattersall have steadied things impressively. Malan 63 and Tattersall 20, the pair having shared 46. Leg-spinner Critchley in operation now from the Kirkstall Lane End.

2.56pm Glorious way to bring up a fifty on home debut for Malan, who drives Melton down the ground for four – his eighth. 87 balls for that half-century. 131-4 in the 44th.

2.45pm Yorkshire have advanced to 125-4 after 41 overs. Malan has 47 and Tattersall 6. Cohen has been replaced after his impressive two-wicket spell.

2.16pm Brook gone! He’s also fallen to Cohen, caught at first slip for 0. Two wickets in the over, and Yorkshire are 106-4 in the 35th.

2.09pm Lyth goes, caught behind by Hosein off left-armer Cohen for 31. 106-3.

1.47pm We’re in the second over of the afternoon here at Headingley, and there’s been no addition to the score. 82-2 in the 30th.

Lunch report Yorkshire have made healthy progress to 82-2 from 28 overs at lunch on day one of their Bob Willis Trophy clash with North Group leaders Derbyshire at Emerald Headingley.

Tom Kohler-Cadmore (nought) and Jonny Bairstow (22) fell after Derby captain Billy Godleman won the toss and elected to bowl.

This is a clash between two sides who have won their first two games and are separated by only four points in the race for top spot in the six-team group.

Kohler-Cadmore fell in the second over when he edged Ben Aitchison to third slip as he under-edged a ball he tried to leave alone (2-1).

Lyth then pulled back-to-back sixes off Michael Cohen in the third over and has since reached lunch unbeaten on 25.

Bairstow was dropped on nought at mid-off by Godleman off Dustin Melton before hitting four boundaries, three of them particularly crisply struck.

Unfortunately, he fell when he pushed at Anuj Dal’s seamers and edged behind in the 16th over, leaving Yorkshire 40-2.

Lyth will begin the afternoon with Dawid Malan for company on 23 at an overcast Headingley, where the floodlights have been on.

Conditions have not been easy for batting, with the pitch seeming two-paced.

1.04pm – Lunch Yorkshire have reached 82-2 from 28 overs, losing TKC and Bairstow. Lyth has 25 and Malan 23.

12.31pm Yorkshire have advanced their score to 54-2 in the 21st over. Lyth has 20 and Malan 8. Batting has not been easy this morning. Pitch looks a bit two paced from our vantage point in the Carnegie Pavilion.

12.08pm Bairstow gone! He’s been caught behind off Dal, 22. Pushing at one outside off stump. Yorkshire 40-2 in the 16th.

12.01pm After an hour’s play, Yorkshire have moved to 38-1 after 14 overs. Lyth has 17, including two sixes, and Bairstow 21. It hasn’t been a morning without alarm given Bairstow was dropped on nought after Kohler-Cadmore’s departure. But Yorkshire will be pretty happy.

11.35am Bairstow has been dropped on nought by Godleman at mid-off. Uppish drive at Melton struck sweetly and burst through the hands of the Derby skipper. 22-1 in the ninth now. Lyth has 15 and Bairstow seven.

11.23am Play is taking place under the Emerald Headingley floodlights at present. Yorkshire 15-1 in the sixth.

11.13am Lyth has just pulled Cohen for back-to-back sixes in the third over. 14-1.

11.09am Kohler-Cadmore gone! He’s edged Aitchison to Critchley at third slip, 0. Yorkshire 2-1 in the second over. TKC was actually trying to leave alone and got an under edge.

11.02am Yorkshire are 2-0 midway through a pretty wild first over from left-armer Michael Cohen, who has fired his fair share down leg as he searches for his range.

10.42am Derbyshire have won the toss and will bowl first.

Yorkshire: Lyth, Kohler-Cadmore, Bairstow w, Malan, Brook, Tattersall, Thompson, Hill, Patterson c, Leech, Olivier.

Derbyshire: Godleman c, Wood, Madsen, du Plooy, Critchley, Hughes, Hosein w, Dal, Aitchison, Cohen, Melton.

10.27am This game’s live stream is only available to members, but there are live highlight clips available on the match centre page on our website.

10.19am Here’s a look around the circuit for today’s fixtures elsewhere….


Lancashire v Nottinghamshire, Trent Bridge
Leicestershire v Durham, Grace Road


Glamorgan v Gloucestershire, Cardiff
Northamptonshire v Worcestershire, Wantage Road
Warwickshire v Somerset, Edgbaston


Hampshire v Surrey, Arundel
Kent v Middlesex, Canterbury
Sussex v Essex, Hove

Good morning from Emerald Headingley, where it is an overcast scene. However, most importantly it is dry and we should be good to go at 11am for the start of round three of the Bob Willis North Group campaign.

This is a clash between two sides who have won both of their games so far – the only teams with a 100 percent record in the North.

While Yorkshire have beaten Durham and Notts away, Derbyshire have beaten Notts and Leicestershire on the road. Derby are actually playing every game away this summer due to their County Ground being used as a bio-secure hub for international training.

This is the first of three campaign ending home games for Yorkshire, who also host Lancashire and Leicestershire before September 9.

A win here for either side will put one hand on top spot in the table. Then it comes down to being one of the best two group winners to advance to next month’s Lord’s final.

Yorkshire have Jonny Bairstow and David Willey available this weekend.

Enjoy the day.
