Match Details

Derbyshire will cross swords with Yorkshire in the upcoming North Group fixture of the Vitality T20 Blast tournament. This encounter will be played at Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester.

This match will be played on July 18 (Sunday) and will begin at 09:30 PM IST.


Both these teams have had entirely different campaigns so far, which makes Yorkshire firm favourites for this fixture. With seven wins in 12 games, Yorkshire are currently holding the second spot in the North Group points table and they would like to continue their winning run. Harry Brook and Sam Northeast have been their stand-out performers.

On the contrary, nothing much has gone Derbyshire’s way in T20 Blast 2021. The Matthew Critchley-led side haa failed to perform as a unit and have subsequently lost one game after another. Derbyshire, in fact, are reeling at the rock bottom of the team standings.

The youngster also made a mark with the ball in hand as well. Coming to his numbers, Reece has scored 351 runs and scalped five wickets so far.
