Yorkshire’s D40 Tykes team continued their winning start to 2022 by beating Derbyshire in a pulsating National League fixture at Higham CC on Sunday.

Yorkshire were under the cosh having been bowled out for 164 inside 26 of their 40 overs before Derbyshire made a strong start to their response at 51-0. From there, however, the tide quickly turned.

Captain James O’Conner led the way, as he had done in the previous Sunday’s victory at Northamptonshire.

O’Conner (27) was one of five home players who posted scores in the twenties. Owen Morris and the aggressive Luke Riley made 29 apiece; Cameron Groves also made 24 and Gordon Laidlaw 22.

In reply, Derbyshire looked well placed to put an early dent in Yorkshire’s promotion hopes, but off-spinner O’Conner had other ideas and claimed 3-18.

Liam Savage and John Kenward Nash both returned vital contributions, 2-35 and 1-15 respectively, for a team missing a number of England stars due to Ashes duty in Australia.

But an 18-run success – Derbyshire finished on 146 – was achieved on the back of a disciplined display with the ball and in the field.
