In-form duo Owen Morris and Cameron Sweeney are leading a host of Yorkshire stars involved in the ongoing ECB Disability Premier League, which has reached its crunch stage.

The DPL brings together the best disability players across England and pits them against each other in a four-team, almost franchise style T20 competition over three weekends.

This Sunday, the finalists will be decided in the final round of group fixtures. The Sky Sports televised final takes place at Derby on September 6. 

Already qualified are the Hawks, including Kyle Clayton, Robert Hewitt, Morris and Henry Wainman. 

Morris is the leading wicket-taker in the competition with seven, with the Hawks having won all four matches so far.

In all, there are 13 Yorkshire players – no real surprise given the county have just been crowned as the National Quest D40 champions.

The other three teams, the Pirates, Black Cats and defending champions Tridents, are all still in the hunt. 

Sweeney is playing for the Tridents alongside Edward Denton. Sweeney gained a late replacement call-up on Sunday just gone and posted scores of 58 and 44 in two matches.

Fellow Yorkshire players, Alex Jervis, Gordon Laidlaw, Luke Riley and Liam Thomas are all playing for the Pirates, while Cameron Cooper, Adam Marshall and James O’Conner are representing the Black Cats.

The final round of group matches will be played at Loughborough this Sunday and are streamed live on YouTube.
