Both Yorkshire and Warwickshire have some amazing talents in their respective squads, but for some reasons have struggled in the North Group this edition. Yorkshire are seventh on the table with 4 points whilst Warwickshire are not very far away at 5th with 5 points. Both teams will be eager to garner some winning momentum before they head into the business end.
Yorkshire registered a decent total of 177 in their previous fixture on the same ground, but Worcestershire made a mockery of the total, finishing the chase with 15 balls remaining. Warwickshire on the other hand, were humiliated in the hands of Nottinghamshire and neither of the teams comes into this game with any significant confidence advantage.
The North Group game in the Vitality T20 Blast 2019 will be played between Yorkshire and Warwickshire at the Headingley, Leeds.
The match starts at 2:30 PM local time (7:00 PM IST) (1:30 PM GMT).
This game will be streamed live on Yorkshire Cricket Club’s YouTube Channel.
Teams have relished chasing at the Headingley in the last couple of games. The ground staff is doing a decent job in providing sportive tracks, but they still are a bit more supportive for the batsmen.
