Yorkshire made it 6 wins from 6 games as they won in front of a large crowd at Abbeydale home of Sheffield Collegiate.

Yorkshire were asked to bat first however Finlay Bean was bowled by ex Sri Lankan test player, Lakmal, for 7 (8-1). Harry Duke added 36 with Will Fraine in 21 deliveries before the latter was caught on the mid wicket boundary for 14.

The powerplay finished with 55 runs on the board without further loss but Hill was bowled for 7 and Duke was caught at point having made 34 from 23 balls – 71-4. Yash Vagadia and debutant, Ismail Mohammed added 34 in 25 balls. Vagadia made 25 from 23 and Mohammed 21 from 16, 114-7.

Twenty six further runs were added as Yorkshire closed on 140-8 – a total that, at the time, looked 20 or 30 short of being competitive.

Fifteen was taken from Ben Coads first over as Derbyshire got off to a flyer posting 41 before in the 4th over Bean took a good catch at extra cover to give Hill a wicket – 41-1. Progressing to 61 in the 7th over 16 year old debutant, Josh Hoyle struck with his second ball having Came lbw for 28 from 17 deliveries. More spin was introduced at the other end and Jack Shutt struck twice in his first over producing a superb low caught and bowled followed three balls later with Thomson lbw. His second over saw an even better timed high catch from his own bowling and Derbyshire had lost 4 wickets for 14 runs in 18 balls.

Harrison and Kelley took the score to 101 before Shutt returned to claim his forth wicket and end with the tremendous figures of 4-0-10-4. Ben Coad took 2 wickets in an over and our visitors entered the last over needing 25 for victory – 10 were scored meaning a 14 run victory for Yorkshire.

Many thanks to all at Abbeydale for their hospitality.

Next action is a “double header” against Nottinghamshire at Worksop College on Friday 2nd June 11.30am and 3 pm. There then follow two more away games at Ramsbottom 6th June against Lancashire and the return fixture v Derbyshire at Duffield on 8th June.
