Birmingham Bears will be back to Edgbaston for their 3rd home game of the season. They won 1 and lost 1 here so far. Yorkshire Vikings are coming here with a lot of confidence after winning their last two consecutive matches.

It wasn’t a great start for them in the first couple of matches but they are now back to winning ways with some consistent performances with the bat. Their openers led them to a huge victory in the recent match as the Vikings chased down 182 runs with 9 wickets in hand.

It is a completely contrasting picture with the Bears struggling to chase while the Vikings doing a great job of chasing totals. It is a batting-friendly wicket at Edgbaston and both teams will be looking to make the most of the conditions.

There are promising batters in both teams and they will be keen on scoring big on the match day. The visitors will have a slight edge considering the current form of both teams.

Birmingham Bears Preview

Birmingham Bears will be up against Yorkshire Vikings at Edgbaston. They’ve got quality batters in their squad but the current form is a major concern. There hasn’t been anyone delivering consistently for the Bears so far.

Their first two wins came on the back of a strong bowling performance. And as the batting continued to disappoint in the next couple of matches, the Bears found themselves on the backfoot losing back-to-back games.

Robert Yates, Sam Hain, and Jacob Bethell have scored a fifty each so far but as a unit, the Bears could never come together to deliver a match-winning performance with the bat.

Alex Davies and Robert Yates have a crucial role to play as openers while the Bears have tried to replace Chris Benjamin at number 3 with Dan Mousley. The latter scored 35 off 20 in the last game while Benjamin was out cheaply at number 6.

Each of these batters have been a match-winner in previous seasons but is struggling to find rhythm and consistency this year.

The bowling attack is well equipped with the likes of Hasan Ali, Danny Briggs, and George Garton. These are reliable wicket-taking bowlers and will be the key players for the home team in this match.

Birmingham Bears Predicted Playing XI:

Alex Davies (c & wk), Robert Yates, Chris Benjamin, Jacob Bethell, Sam Hain, Dan Mousley, George Garton, Aamer Jamal, Jake Lintott, Hasan Ali, Danny Briggs

Yorkshire Preview

Yorkshire Vikings will be happy with their newfound form. After a shaky start to the season, Yorkshire are looking much better now with the recent wins. The batting has improved a great deal with Dawid Malan finding his touch at the top and Adam Lyth also joining the party.

Along with these two Joe Root at number 3 adds more strength to the top-order. After Donovan Ferreira failed in the first three matches, Yorkshire Vikings replaced him with Harry Duke in the last match.

Duke didn’t get to bat as the Vikings chased down the target with 9 wickets in hand. However, there is skipper Shan Masood in the middle-order who’s a reliable batter who looked in good touch against Northants Steelbacks and the Foxes.

Other key batters in the lower-middle order include Jordan Thompson and Matthew Revis. They can be very handy lower down the order and add some crucial runs at the death.

It is going to be an exciting contest at Edgbaston with both batters and bowlers likely to find some help from the surface. Revis can also be effective with the ball alongside the regulars Thompson and Daniel Moriarty.

The experience of Joe Root is a huge plus for Yorkshire in every aspect of the game. He comes in handy with the ball and can deliver a breakthrough when the team needs it the most.

Yorkshire Predicted Playing XI:

Adam Lyth, Dawid Malan, Joe Root, Shan Masood (c), James Wharton, Jordan Thompson, Matthew Revis, Harry Duke (wk), Dominic Bess, Benjamin Cliff, Daniel Moriarty

Weather Conditions

It is a great wicket that offers plenty of help to both batters and bowlers. There have been many high-scoring matches on this ground and also some low-scoring thrillers. It will be an even contest between bat and ball. There will be scattered showers with a high of 16 degrees Celsius in Birmingham on the match day.

WRW vs YOR Pitch Report

Edgbaston in Birmingham will be the venue for this clash. This will be the third match of the T20 Blast 2024 on this ground. While the average 1st innings score here in T20Is is just 144 runs, a winning total should be something over 190 runs at this venue. The new ball can move a bit and trouble the openers. There is help for the swing bowlers especially with the weather around.

Toss: To Bat

Teams batting first have won considerably more T20Is here at Edgbaston. Durham successfully defended 190+ in the last game while the hosts were successful in defending 149 in their first game here. Batting first should be the way to go in this match.

The hosts are out of form and struggling to put a decent total on the board. Whereas the visiting Vikings are delivering top-notch performances consistently. Yorkshire Vikings will have the upper hand in this contest and hence, start as favorites in our match prediction.
