YORKSHIRE have postponed Wednesday's Vitality Blast fixture with Derbyshire to avoid a clash with England's World Cup semi-final against Croatia.

The Twenty20 match at Headingley was due to begin at 6.30pm - 30 minutes before the football - but Yorkshire have announced it has now been rescheduled for July 30.

A statement read: "Following England's progression to the semi-final of the FIFA World Cup, Yorkshire County Cricket Club believe that it is in the best interests of the spectators to reschedule the fixture.

"The decision has taken into consideration travel advice for the Headingley area on Wednesday night."
