Result: Yorkshire Vikings ease past Derbyshire Falcons in T20 Blast

Yorkshire Vikings climb up to second place in the T20 Blast North Division table with a comfortable 59-run victory at Derbyshire Falcons.

Yorkshire Vikings have moved up to second place in the T20 Blast North Division table with a 59-run win at struggling Derbyshire Falcons.

The Vikings made 183-4 before bowling Derbyshire out for 124 with around two overs remaining.

Alex Lees impressed with the bat for Yorkshire thanks to an unbeaten knock of 67, while Kane Williamson (41) and Andrew Gale (34) also did well at the crease.

Marcus North claimed two wickets for the Falcons as Mark Turner and Greg Cork shared the remaining two wickets between them.

Derbyshire's run-chase got off to a disastrous start when opener Wes Durston was dismissed for a duck. North (20) and Gareth Cross (37) tried to get their team back on track, but a lack of runs in the middle order did them no favours.

Tom Knight (27) and David Wainwright (20 not out) put up some resistance as part of the Derbyshire tail, though the hosts fell well short in the end.

Azeem Rafiq, Adil Rashid, Adam Lyth and Williamson all proved effective with the ball for Yorkshire.
