Normally, the winner enters the ECF stages as N1 and the second-placed as N2, but as this result was not known before the ECF quarter-final draw was made, Lancashire are down to play in the ECF quarter-final and Yorkshire are down to go straight through to the semi-finals, which is the reverse of how things would have been had the result been known in time.

 

It is of course hardly the fault of the ECF if the NCCU is too slow getting off the mark but then there was that small matter of Covid which was slowing things down!
