YOR vs DER Match 24 North Group Predictions & Betting Tips

The 20th edition of the T20 Blast is underway from May 25, and it's time for match number 24 between Yorkshire and Derbyshire (YOR vs DER). The match will be played at the Headingley in Leeds and will commence from 11 PM PM IST on Tuesday, May 31. Both the teams have won a match each but Yorkshire have played three, and Derbyshire have played two matches.

In the last season, Yorkshire had finished second in the North Group after seven wins in 13 matches. They qualified for the quarterfinals where they lost to Sussex by five wickets. Derbyshire, on the other hand, finished eighth in the league stage after managing to win only four games.

In the Vitality Blast 2022, Yorkshire are currently occupying the third spot in the 9-team South Group points table, while Derbyshire, who have played a game less, are at fourth. As we gear up for match 24 of the English T20 league, I have brought you the best three betting tips from the YOR vs DER match 24 head-to-head encounter.

YOR vs DER Team Bet:

Mentioned below is the top team bet from the YOR vs DER head-to-head contest.

Yorkshire to win

Yorkshire are too strong a team on paper or otherwise, and without a shadow of any doubt, they will enter the match 24 of the Vitality Blast 2022 against Derbyshire as the clear favourites.

The two teams have played a total of 32 matches against each other as Yorkshire have got the better of Derbyshire on 19 occasions. One match ended in a tie. Yorkshire have won their last three matches against the side and look set to stretch the streak.

Yorkshire kicked off their campaign with a thumping 7-wicket win over Worcestershire. A thrilling tie followed when they locked horns against Lancashire. In the third match, they suffered a 31-run defeat at the hands of Leicestershire but that does not take anything away from the credentials of the team.

Derbyshire narrowly lost their first match by three runs while chasing 201. In the second match they rode on the back of Shan Masood's innings to register a 70-run win against Leicestershire. But none of these two teams carried any experience or firepower like Yorkshire. Also, in the batting department, the team heavily relies on their captain Shan Masood.

Yorkshire boasts of a captain in Joe Root. They have in-form batsmen like Dawid Malan and Harry Brook in their arsenal. The team has an all-rounder in Shadab Khan and the bowling unit is studded with players like Dom Bess, Adil Rashid and Haris Rauf. Yorkshire have beaten Derbyshire 10 out of 18 times at Headingley, the venue for Tuesday's match.

YOR vs DER clash can be a one-sided affair in the favour of Yorkshire. If you feel the same, head over to Pari Match to grab the odds of 1.42 and place your bet on Yorkshire from the YOR vs DER head-to-head encounter.

YOR vs DER Player Bet:

Shan Masood and Dawid Malan are my top two player betting tips for the YOR vs DER match 24. Have a look at it for reaping the best returns.

Shan Masood to score over 22.5 runs

Ahead of Derbyshire's last match against Leicestershire, we had predicted that the skipper would star for his team and he did not disappoint us. He top-scored for his team with 53 off 43 balls and guided them to a superb 70-run win. Derbyshire captain and opener Shan Masood has been in red hot form lately and expecting him to score over 22.5 runs against Yorkshire will also be a no-brainer. The 32-year-old Pakistan opener is the leading run-scorer in Division Two of County Championship 2022. Averaging 93.77, Masood has scored 844 runs in just nine innings. The right-hander scored three hundreds and as many fifties in the process.

The formats are definitely different but there is no denying that Shan Masood is very well accustomed to the English condition. In his first match of the T20 Blast 2022, he scored only 12 runs but looked good during his 7-ball stay which saw him hit two boundaries.

Before coming to England for the County Championship 2022, Masood featured in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) 2021-22 for Multan Sultans. He finished the T20 tournament as the third-highest run-scorer. The Kuwait-born scored 478 runs at an average of 39.83. Overall, Masood has played 95 T20 matches to score 2291 runs at an average of 25.17. He has one hundred and 14 fifties to his name in the format. Considering Masood's form we expect him to score over 22.5 runs despite a strong Yorkshire bowling attack. If you feel the same, proceed to Pari Match and pick the odds of 1.87 for Shan Masood to score over 22.5 runs from the YOR vs DER head-to-head encounter.

Dawid Malan to score over 24.5 runs

Dawid Malan has played only a game against Derbyshire and his T20 record at Headingley are also not great. From the seven matches the world No. 4 T20I batsman has played, he has scored just 91 runs at an average of 13.00. The southpaw also went unsold in the IPL 2022 mega auction and haven't played a T20 match before entering the Vitality Blast 2022. During the T20 World Cup 2021 in October-November 2021, the opener scored 116 runs in six matches at an average of 29.00.

But will that stop him from scoring 24.5 runs against Derbyshire? It's highly unlikely. The 34-year-old has looked confident in his three outings in the tournament so far. He scored 33 against Worcestershire, 5 against Lancashire and then 50 off 38 versus Leicestershire. Ahead of the tournament, Malan featured in the County Championship 2022 matches. scoring a gigantic hundred and four fifties. Overall, he has played a total of 256 T20 matches, scoring 6863 runs at an average of 32.22. The Roehampton-born has five hundred and 41 fifties to his name in the format and with the T20 World Cup 2022 fast approaching, he would like to get the attention of England's new white-ball coach Matthew Mott.

Scoring over 24.5 runs against a not very experienced T20 bowling attack should not be an issue for a very experienced T20 player like Dawid Malan. Our affiliate partner Pari Match is offering the odds of 1.87 for the same. So waste no time and head to the Pari Match website to place your bet on Dawid Malan from the YOR vs DER head-to-head encounter.
