While Yorkshire have come into the final month of the summer out of promotion contention, Derbyshire are all but out of the race as well. They are 52 points off the top two places, albeit with a game in hand and four to play.

9.05am – Good morning from Scarborough, where it’s a glorious morning ahead of our 11th Championship match of the season, the return fixture with Derbyshire after June’s thriller at Chesterfield, which Yorkshire won.
Both sides come into this Division Two affair with little to play for in terms of prizes given promotion is out of the question.
While Yorkshire are bottom, Derbyshire are sixth. They may argue that they are still in with a shout of the top two. They are 52 points behind second-placed Worcestershire with a game in hand and four to play. But they would have to have the perfect run-in to have a chance.
We get going at 10.30am here. Now that we’re in September, all fixtures start half an hour sooner.
This is the first Championship match following the six-week break for the Metro Bank One-Day Cup.
Yorkshire have named a strong squad, though there has been a late change. Jafer Chohan is unavailable, so Isaac Light has been called in to replace him.
We have a couple of pieces for you to read before play starts.
We spoke to Shan Masood in preview to this fixture and to Scarborough president Bill Mustoe about Festival week and Scarborough’s development as a club. They are linked below.
There will be a live stream available via the Match Centre tab at the top of the page shortly before we get going. Enjoy the day.
