THE LOWDOWN

A battle between the two sides clear at the top of the North Group awaits here in the third round of Bob Willis Trophy matches. Yorkshire and Derbyshire have each won their opening two group games and the winner of this game will put themselves in an incredibly strong position going into the final two group games of this truncated red ball campaign.

THE PREDICTION

The availability of Jonny Bairstow immediately paid dividends for Yorkshire in their last game after he hit 75 in their second innings against Nottinghamshire. A player of his quality could make the difference for the ‘White Rose’ in this matchup between two sides full of confidence and quality batting. This should be a close contest, but with home advantage plus the likes of Bairstow and Malan within their ranks, Yorkshire should narrowly come out on top.
