The North Group match of the T20 Blast 2020 will be played between Yorkshire and Derbyshire at the Headlingly Ground in Leeds.
The match is scheduled to start at 02:00 PM Local Time (06:30 PM IST) (01:00 PM GMT) and can be streamed live on FanCode.
A North Group encounter between Yorkshire and Derbyshire will be played on Sunday. Most of the North Group games thus far had to be abandoned due to rain. It was the same case with Derbyshire and Yorkshire. The respective opening games of these two teams were washed out. In this match, however, they would be praying that the rain stays away and will look forward to starting off on a winning note.
The chances of precipitation on Sunday is just around 10 per cent. Thus, we might get a full game of cricket.
The pitch at this venue is extremely batting-friendly. However, it tends to slow down in the second half. Thus, the team that wins the toss should look to bat first.
