Greetings pop pickers. I thought that I would remind y'all of all the lovely matches between Yorkshire and our neighbours, Durham. The latter joined the County Championship in 1992 and after a slow start they have progressed in recent years to become a leading player on the stage of English cricket. Here is a statistical history of the 'derby' encounters between the old superpower and the young pretender during the nineties when Durham were a 'work in progress'. During this decade: Yorkshire 7 wins, Durham 0 wins, 1 draw.
