A quick-fire burst of four wickets for only three runs in 24 balls during the final 20 minutes of the fourth morning set Yorkshire up for a deserved 277-run victory over Derbyshire at sunny Scarborough in the LV= Insurance County Championship.

Jordan Thompson and Dom Bess struck twice apiece in that spell as Derbyshire, in the face of a 571 target, slipped from health at 198-2 to peril at 201-6.

Thompson trapped opener Harry Came lbw for 58 before Bess did the same to Wayne Madsen, who made a superb 93 off 71 balls.

Shortly afterwards, off-spinner Bess also had Derbyshire captain Leus du Plooy lbw for nought, and the visitors failed to recover.

They were bowled out for 293 just before 2.20pm and lost for the second time in Division Two this season to Yorkshire after a defeat at Chesterfield in June.

They are the only two matches bottom side Yorkshire have won this season.

They still remain rooted to the foot of Division Two having been docked 48 points earlier this summer by the ECB’s Cricket Discipline Commission, as a result of allegations of racism and discrimination at the club over a 17-year period.

Bess finished with 4-79 from 24.2 overs, while Matthew Revis added three afternoon wickets to Thompson’s two. Yorkshire did gain 20 points but were docked two because of a slow over-rate. 

Fringe England Test quick Matthew Fisher did not bowl on the final day due to a mild side strain, but even without him, Yorkshire still managed their largest margin of victory by runs in first-class matches against Derbyshire. 

That had not looked overly likely when Yorkshire were bowled out for 297 on day one, James Wharton top-scoring with 58.

Jonny Tattersall (45) and Fin Bean (41), while there was also a quickfire 37 not out from Fisher, batting at No.10.

At 173-3 in their first innings, Derbyshire looked well on course to surpass the Yorkshire total.

But the hosts fought back well at Scarborough, Jordan Thompson (3-48) and Fisher (3-54) leading the way.

They were key to helping bowl Derbyshire out for 247, before Yorkshire took complete control in their second innings.

Already leading by 50 runs, Yorkshire posted a mammoth 520-9 declared to put the game out of sight.

Revis scored the second first-class century hundred with a fine 106, and he was backed up by half-centuries from captain Shan Masood (86), George Hill (79), Bean (64) and Fisher (64).

Unsurprisingly Derbyshire fell well short of their victory target, and Yorkshire will look to take that momentum into their next Championship match, which starts at Glamorgan this Sunday.
