Yorkshire and Derbyshire will face each other in the next encounter of the north group on 31st May 2022 at Headingley, Leeds. Both the teams have lost one match each so far in the league and they will try to win this upcoming game to make it through the top 2 of the North Group.
Yorkshire have played 3 games so far and with 1 win, loss, and tie game each, they are at the 3rd spot in the points table with 3 points. On the other side, Derbyshire have played just 2 games so far and with 1 loss and 1 win, they are just below Yorkshire at 4th position with 2 points.
Derbyshire are coming up with a win in their last match whereas Yorkshire got defeated in the last match they played. So it will be a big game for both the sides, as Derbyshire are looking forward to continuing the winning momentum, and their counterparts; Yorkshire will try to be back on a winning track.
Yorkshire have a good depth in the batting unit and they have used that properly in the first 2 matches played in the league. Unfortunately, they failed to carry out the same plan in the 3rd match against Leicestershire and they lost that match. Now they will try to be back on a winning side when they face Derbyshire in their next match at Headingley, Leeds.
Leicestershire won the toss and asked Yorkshire to bowl first but the team’s bowling unit failed to restrict opponents to a low total in the 3rd fixture. Despite Jordan Thompson’s 3 wickets for 34 runs in his 4 overs, no one could manage to put pressure on the batters of Leicestershire which cost them to chase the target of 189 runs.
After the heroics of Harry Brook ( scored 60 and 72 respectively in the first 2 games ) in the first two matches of the league, Yorkshire’s batting unit collapsed while chasing the target of 189 runs in their 3rd match against Leicestershire. Dawid Malan has managed to score 50 runs from 38 balls but that was not enough while chasing such a big total.
Yorkshire have utilized their batting strength properly in the first 3 games and managed to get results from those. Although they have failed to deliver that again in the 3rd match, they will try to focus on their next game against Derbyshire. They have good records against Derbyshire in the fast and will try to maintain those in this match also.

Derbyshire are looking more promising this season compared to their last season and have managed to win 1 game from their last 2 matches. Their next fixture will be against Yorkshire where they have to face an experienced bowling unit of Yorkshire.
In the first match against Birmingham Bears, Derbyshire’s bowlers couldn’t manage to deliver economical spells. Sam Conners has taken 3 wickets for 33 runs in his spell of 3 overs, but others couldn't manage to support him and they have conceded 200 runs in 20 overs. Despite conceding 200 runs, the team’s batting unit came to the rescue and tried hard to chase down the target.
While chasing the target of 201 runs, they lost the game by just 3 runs as the team’s middle-order stood firm and delivered important partnerships in the middle. Brook Guest has scored 54 runs from 3 runs which went in vain. They made a strong comeback in the next match against Leicestershire. Shan Masood (53 runs from 43 balls) has scored a brilliant fifty to set up a target of 160 runs for opponents.
The team’s all bowlers were on the mark while defending that total of 160 runs and all have taken wickets to bowl out opponents to just 89 runs. They have managed to win the 2nd game by 70 runs. They will try to carry on the same momentum ahead of their next fixture against Yorkshire on Tuesday.

The weather will be partly cloudy on match day, with a 20-25% chance of raining on match day. The maximum and minimum temperatures will be in the 13°C - 6°C range.
Headingley Ground from Leeds will host this match. This ground has a capacity of 1700 and has conducted a few international as well as domestic games so far.
This ground has not conducted any T20Is matches so far but is mainly used for domestic purposes like Vitality Blast and County Championship. The pitch offers an equal advantage to batsmen as well as bowlers. But in general, captains prefer to chase the target here. At this location, whichever team wins the toss will want to bowl first.
Though Yorkshire have failed to chase down the target against Leicestershire, they have a good depth in their batting order. If we compare the batting unit of both the teams, Yorkshire have an upper hand over Derbyshire. On the other side as far as the bowling unit is concerned, Derbyshire is heavily dependent on players like Sam Conners and George Scrimshaw but Yorkshire have a well-settled bowling attack. Overall, Yorkshire have a slight advantage to win a game against Derbyshire.
We predict that Yorkshire will defeat Derbyshire.
