Yorkshire beat Derbyshire by 25 runs

Yorkshire Carnegie had their pace bowlers to thank for a first Friends Provident Trophy win of the season.

The home attack tied down their opponents, who never looked like reaching their 120 target in a match reduced to 24 overs a side because of morning rain.

Derbyshire slumped to 10 for three as Tim Bresnan's first ball was edged into the stumps by Chris Rogers and in his next over John Sadler was bowled off a pad.

The collapse continued as Steve Stubbings was caught behind by Gerard Brophy off Deon Kruis and it became 27 for four when Richard Pyrah joined the attack to pin Rikki Clarke in front of his stumps with his first delivery.

Wickets continued to tumble in dim light and only Bradford-born James Pipe put up much resistance, before he was bowled by Pyrah after reaching 20 off 23 balls with three boundaries.

With the visitors subsiding to 66 for seven Yorkshire were in complete command and the last wicket fell at 94 in the 23rd over, Anthony McGrath finishing with the excellent figures of 3-16.


Earlier, Yorkshire lost Brophy to the first ball he received from Charl Langeveldt and his departure brought in England Test captain Michael Vaughan, who made 16 off 25 balls before being caught off Tom Lungley on the boundary. Vaughan has just 37 runs to his name from four innings for Yorkshire so far this season.

Lungley also dismissed Andrew Gale for 18 and the seamer's final figures of 4-2-12-2 would have made even better reading if Stubbings had not put down Jacques Rudolph at slip.

Yorkshire would have struggled to make a competitive score but for a dashing unbeaten innings of 41 from 36 balls by Adil Rashid, who flicked Wagg high over midwicket for six and also struck two fours.
