Yorkshire must win their final two matches to finish in the top three places in the North Group and qualify for the knockout stages of the Royal London One-Day Cup, starting with Lancashire at Emirates Old Trafford tomorrow (11am).

The Vikings sit sixth in the table on seven points, two behind third-placed Notts Outlaws and three behind the top two, Worcestershire and Warwickshire.

But they are the only team in the group with two fixtures remaining, including Northamptonshire at Emerald Headingley on Thursday – when Joe Root has been made available by the England management.

And with Warwickshire hosting Worcestershire on Thursday and Notts hosting fourth-placed Derbyshire, who have eight points, it leaves the door open for Steve Patterson’s side.
