Derbyshire v Yorkshire preview

Just an hour to go until the big game and I'm afraid domestic commitments have prevented an earlier preview.

Suffice to say that this will be a very big test - perhaps the ultimate test - in the group for Derbyshire. Yorkshire are a side full of quality players and to beat them would need a huge effort. Only Nottinghamshire in a strong group can match them and they hammered our dear rivals last night.

So...

We need to be at our best, hold our catches, bowl tight lines and lengths, then bat with the same nous that we did last night.

Then, maybe.

Nevertheless, my head says this is a step too far for now, but it looks like everyone from last night is fit, so you never know.

More from me later, when I should have more time.

Good luck lads.

32-3 in the 7th as I write and we are really struggling against an excellent bowling side. Why choose to bat first after chasing so well last night?

Unless it is dry and they expect turn I don't know.

Too slow by half and we will struggle to make 140...

As if Critchley hasn't been out yet. 6 down and he is still sat on the bench. Don't get that.

Kamikazee performance this by sounds of it

Why on earth did we choose to bat?. Game over at 120-7, won't even be competitive I'm afraid.

Wow. 2/2. Amazing start.

Well knock me down with a feather duster, how did we win that?. It always works this reverse psychology lark, I knew we wouldn't be competitive, lol. Tahir with a great little spell, that's why we signed him. What a start to T20 this has been.

Dumbfounded us again with some brilliant cricket following lacklustre spells. Up the Derbyshire!

Just a commennt, in the north of the county Yorkshire are as big a rivals as Notts and equally (or even more) disliked
