Both the teams hope to break barrier
Both the sides are yet to play a game in the season, as Yorkshire’s last game was washed out on Friday and Derbyshire start their campaign on Saturday against their rivals. Both the teams haven’t made it to the quarterfinals in the previous season so this time around they hope to break the barrier.

He has been brilliant for Yorkshire over the last couple of years. He was the second-highest run-getter for the side in the 2018 T20 Blast, where he scored 386 runs in 10 matches at a sterile rate of 140.
