Yorkshire’s D40 Tykes team raced to a nine-wicket victory over Derbyshire on Sunday, maintaining a 100 percent record in their National League North campaign.

Edward Denton’s superb 4-24 from eight overs after taking the new ball at Cuckney CC in Mansfield set the Tykes on their way, restricting Derbyshire to 124-8 in their 40 overs.

Cameron Groves, Yorkshire’s keeper opener, then posted an unbeaten 54 – his maiden county half-century, to help achieve a landslide victory in only 12.5 overs.

No Derby batter made it to 20, with three of Denton’s wickets bowled and one lbw.

Cameron Cooper, Luke Riley and Owen Morris all struck in a game which saw England’s Learning Disability Ashes hero Alex Jervis play.

In reply, Groves and captain James O’Conner shared 117 for the first wicket, the latter making 59 before being bowled by Harrison Jones.

Morris, who had earlier struck with the ball, then helped finished things off with the bat from number three.

Yorkshire’s pursuit of promotion is very much on track.

While they remain behind league leaders Northamptonshire in second, they are only seven points adrift with two games in hand. Northants have won three from five and have 97 points, while Yorkshire have won three from three on 90.

Yorkshire’s next match is against Shropshire on Sunday.
