Yorkshire cruised to yet another victory in the Vitality T20 Blast to take their tally to four wins in six matches. They now stand just behind Lancashire, Durham, and Worcestershire in the points table, currently sharing the place with as many as three teams. They'll have a chance to rise to the top four as they face Derbyshire Falcons on 28th July 2018. Derbyshire have had a dismal season thus far and will be looking to pick themselves after a terrific win against Leicestershire. They'll be looking to score some wins so as to get closer to finishing in the top-four in the group.
Derbyshire registered their first win of the competition, against Leicestershire, just a couple of hours ago. They'll be looking to extend their winning run for as long as possible with Yorkshire next on their list.
Against Leicestershire, their bowlers did a terrific job while bowling first. On a decent batting surface at Grace Road, Wahab Riaz and Ravi Rampaul bowled will accuracy, pace and bounce to rattle Leices batsmen. Leics were consequently restricted for just 149 runs on the board, courtesy of Wahab Riaz's terrific bowling.
Calum Macleod has been their main man in this series, but he was stranded outside the popping crease allowing Ackermann to knock the bails out in time to induce a direct run-out. He departed without facing a ball. However, the fact that their other batsmen chipped in, will be a refreshing sight for the Derbyshire considering their over-dependence on Calum Macleod, Gary Wilson, and Wayne Madsen.

Yorkshire are coming on the back of a massively high-scoring game which was partly affected by rain. Batting first, they racked up 26 runs over 200, which is not an easy feat regardless of the conditions.
Tim Kohler-Cadmore was fantastic with the bat for them and him along with Adam Lyth smashed 63 runs with two balls to go in the fifth over. Coming into bat at number four, Kane Williamson played a beautiful knock of 49 runs. Gary Ballance played a useful cameo of 35 consuming just 21 deliveries which provided impetus to their innings towards the end.
Bresnan and Patterson were uncharacteristically expensive in their last game, but David Willey, Liam Plunkett, and Adil Rashid pulled things back as the trio gave away only 66 runs in their 9 overs which were nothing short of gold in the context of the game. They were able to restrict the Bears for 178 runs in 18 overs against the required Duck-Worth Lewis score of 207. Overall, Adam Lyth and Tim Kohler-Cadmore have excellent with the bat. The presence of Williamson and Macleod has only added to their strength as a team which could come in handy when dealing in crunch situations.

Derbyshire did well to rise from the ashes and register a much-needed win against Leicestershire. Yorkshire have done reasonably well in the tournament and the return of Kane Williamson has certainly strengthened their batting lineup and with a versatile bowling attack, they look well set to stop Derbyshire from getting another win in the Vitality T20 Blast.
