After almost six weeks, Yorkshire returned to red ball action featuring some of those who have shone brightly in the Royal London Cup.

Dominic Leech made a return from injury and it was he who struck first having Tom Wood caught at first slip by Will Fraine.

Derbyshire, featuring several trialists, had won the toss and decided to bat first. After the early loss, Tyler McGladdery and Samuel Kershaw added 72 in 126 balls before Jack Shutt struck in his first over having the latter again caught at slip.

Derbyshire reached lunch at 108-2, McGladdery having reached his half century from 77 balls with eight fours and a six.

Shutt, having bowled three overs prior to the lunch break, continued unbroken until tea, but it was Tom Loten who had McGladdery caught behind for 77 with the score at 170-4 and tea was taken at 223-6. There were two wickets for James Mukherjee shortly before the new ball was taken and the innings was wrapped up by Loten shortly after taking the new ball – Derbyshire all out for 299.

This left Yorkshire a tricky looking eight overs before the close but these were safely negotiated by Fraine and James Wharton. Yorkshire closed on 36 without loss.
