NOW you can win tickets to watch Yorkshire take on Derbyshire in Round Two of the Friends Provident Trophy 2008.
Examiner Sport has teamed up with Friends Provident, the life and pensions provider, to give two lucky readers and a friend the chance to go and watch Yorkshire take on Derbyshire at Headingley Carnegie on Sunday week, April 27, in Round Two of the Friends Provident Trophy 2008.
The Friends Provident Trophy is the England and Wales Cricket Board’s premier domestic one-day competition.
As a 50-over game, it’s the only domestic competition that replicates the One Day International format, providing the ideal proving ground for future England one-day cricketers.
This year sees the 18 first-class counties, along with Ireland and Scotland, competing in four regions of five teams, each playing each other twice.
The top two teams from each region will then qualify for the quarter finals on June 4.
