Josh Sullivan and Will Fraine contributed to fire Yorkshire towards the knockout stages of the Royal London Cup with a stunning 10-over win versus Derbyshire. And both men could not have been happier leaving Chesterfield.

Leg-spinner Sullivan, recently turned 21, claimed 4-11 from two overs in only his second first-team start as Derbyshire made a competitive total of 108.

Sullivan struck three times in his first four balls and was on a hat-trick.

Fraine then blasted a 19-ball fifty, Yorkshire’s fastest ever in List A cricket, and finished 69 not out in an eight-wicket win with eight balls to spare.

It means Yorkshire moved into second place in Group B with one game left against Glamorgan at Cardiff on Thursday, where a win will advance them to the knockouts.

Glamorgan lead the table by two points with a significantly superior net run-rate.

The top team in each of the two groups advance directly to a home semi-final next Tuesday. Prior to that, the second and third placed teams in each groups play eliminator matches on Saturday for the right to advance.

The final is then at Trent Bridge a week on Thursday.

Sullivan could be there, and so could Fraine.
