THE LOWDOWN

Yorkshire put in a strong batting performance last time out at home to Derbyshire, with a Dawid Malan double century propelling them to 400-6 in their first innings. However, a mixture of rain and resilient Derbyshire batting left them unable to bowl the visitors out and the match petered out to a draw. Lancashire meanwhile looked in trouble against Nottinghamshire, but an unbroken first wicket partnership of 120 in their second innings between Keaton Jennings and Alex Davies kept them safe from any chance of defeat.

THE PREDICTION

A crucial red ball roses match here for both sides. Yorkshire must win in order to keep the pressure on top of the table Derbyshire, whilst failure to win for Lancashire would end any hopes they have of topping the North Group. Both sides will lose players to England duty, however Yorkshire still look a strong outfit and considering Lancashire’s defeat to Leicestershire last time they lost significant personal to England, the ‘White Rose’ should come out victorious here weather permitting.
