Yorkshire  Preview

Yorkshire lost to Derbyshire by a humiliating score of 144 runs in the previous game after winning six straight games. With 12 points and a net run rate of -0.469, the squad is currently ranked fourth in the points table and needs to move past this defeat and return to winning ways.When Yorkshire bowled first, the bowlers were unable to control the scoring rate, and they gave up a massive score of 212/4 in 20 overs. In response, the squad scored just 68 runs in 11.2 overs due to the hitters’ inability to contribute to the game. Shan Masood would try to bounce back from the embarrassing defeat to the Derbyshire Falcons in the previous encounter. Their season-worst performance saw them lose by 144 runs and get bowled out for just 68 runs. A victory here would move them closer to the knockout rounds, and Madood would try to take advantage of the Steelbacks’ lack of form.

After both struggling in the previous game, the team will need a solid start from Adam Lyth and Dawid Malan. They may anticipate runs from Masood, James Wharton, and Jonathan Tattersall since the middle order is solid. The Vikings have a strong middle order and will depend on Matthew Revis, David Weise, and Ben Mike to contribute. The bowling attack struggled in the previous game, thus the team should anticipate early wickets from the seasoned Wiese and Dominic Bess new ball combo. Bem Mile and Jordan Thompson must bowl better lines since they let runs through. In the supporting role, Jafer Chohan and Matthew Revis must bowl solid lines.

 Northamptonshire Preview

Northamptonshire got back to winning after defeating Nottinghamshire by a score of 78 runs in the previous match. With only eight points and a net run rate of -0.294, the squad is still mired in the bottom half of the standings. Northamptonshire made a respectable score of 177/5 in their respective 20 overs because to Ricardo Vasconcelos’ calm innings of 51 runs off 44 balls. Ben Sanderson, who had been tasked with defending 178 runs, came back with the figures of 3/29 as Nottinghamshire was all out for just 99 runs, losing the match by a lopsided 78 runs.

The Notts Outlaws were defeated by David Willey’s team in the previous match. Even though it was their fourth victory, they are already out from contention for a spot in the next round. This season, the team has struggled to maintain its momentum. Willey hopes to turn over their terrible record versus the Vikings with a great showing. The team is counting on Ricardo Vasconcelos and Emilio Gay to get off to a strong start in this game after their recent performance. Willey must serve as the middle innings’ pillar and provide runs alongside Saif Zaib and Justin Broad.

In the closing overs, Rob Keogh, Andrew Tye, and Lewis McManus must exert significant effort. The bowling attack performed well in the previous game, but they now face a more difficult batting order. The team will need early wickets from Ben Sanderson and David Willey. In the middle overs, Freddie Heldreich and Tom Taylor must control the scoring rate. The team will want on Andrew Tye to play well and provide his expertise.

Toss & Pitch Report

The pitch at Leeds’ Headingley is a problem for bowlers because scoring runs is relatively simple there. While the bowlers need to be extremely accurate with their lines and lengths when bowling at this venue, the batters can rely on the pace and bounce of the pitch. This location has seen big scores made and chased down, making it an extremely challenging wicket to set a score on. This would be on the captains’ minds during the toss, and whomever won it would not hesitate to bowl first.


The weather will be cloudy and there is a probability of rain during the game in Leeds.

Yorkshire vs Northamptonshire Prediction:  Yorkshire to win

Northamptonshire Steelbacks have had mixed results. The team’s batting has consistently fallen short, and under cloudy skies, its batters must perform well for the team to prevail. Northamptonshire will be fired up after defeating Nottinghamshire in their most recent match. After been thoroughly outplayed by Derbyshire in the last game, Yorkshire will be motivated to mount a big recovery. However, the team lead by Shan Masood has been playing well lately. The Vikings have won their previous four home games and have a potent batting order and are anticipated to triumph on Tuesday.
