yorks vs dur Match Prediction & Analysis

Vitality Blast is reaching a crucial middle phase where teams will look to pile on the points and stay at the top half of the points table to make their qualification chances bright. Yorkshire and Durham are staying in the second and third position in the points table and will look to further move up and hold a dominating position. Both teams come into this match with a victory in their last game and will look to continue the momentum in this match too. The winner of this match has a chance of top the group.

Teams Preview

Yorkshire Preview

Yorkshire batting unit counterattacked after 2 quick wickets to share a massive 146-run partnership for the third wicket. Injured Johnny Bairstow smashed the ball to every corner to score his first century this season. Tom Kohler (53 runs) and Harry Brook (22 runs) played the perfect second fiddle to Bairstow to take their team to 216 runs. Gary Balance will open as Bairstow is ruled out for the remaining matches.

Their bowling unit put on a perfect show as all 5 bowlers claimed wickets and dismissed the opposition for 122 runs to win by 94 runs. Spinners Dom Bess and Adil Rashid picked up 5 wickets between them in the overs 8-15 period. Pacers David Willey and Mathew Fisher picked up 2 wickets each.

Top Players to bet on:

Dawid Malan: Malan is having a quiet time in this series with just 41 runs in 4 matches. He must make a big score else his selection to the national team might end up in a dilemma. We expect a big knock in this game.

Adil Rashid: Rashid had bowling figures of 3/32 & 1/19 in the last game controlling the middle overs effectively ta one end. His partnership with Dom Bess is strangling the batsmen.

Yorkshire Predicted Playing XI:

Adam Lyth, Gary Ballance (wk), Dawid Malan, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Harry Brook, Will Fraine, David Willey (c), Matthew Fisher, Dominic Bess, Lockie Ferguson, Adil Rashid

Durham Preview

Durham won their third match of the season comfortably by 6 wickets in their last game. David Bedingham was the top scorer with 58 runs while Graham Clark (26 runs) and Cameron Bancroft (29 runs) chipped in with crucial runs to seal the match in just 17.2 overs. Their batting unit has been consistently scoring 170+ runs and will look to continue their good form.

Their bowling unit came up with a displined performance to restrict the opposition to just 151/7 in their 20 overs. Matt Potts was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 3/34 while Trevaskis, Brydon Carse, and Borthwick chipped with a wicket each under an economy arte of less than 7 RPO.

Top Players to bet on:

David Bedingham: David has scores of 58, 65, & 38 in the last 3 matches and he has two 70+ partnerships at the top in the last 2 matches. He will be looking to set the tone of their innings with yet another big knock in this match too.

Matty Potts: Potts has 9 wickets in the 4 matches so far at an economy rate of nearly 8.5 RPO. He will be their X-factor in the bowling attack and will look to continue his wicket hunt in this match too.

Durham Predicted Playing XI:

Graham Clark, David Bedingham, Ben Raine, Cameron Bancroft (c), Ned Eckersley (wk), Sean Dickson, Paul Coughlin, Brydon Carse, Liam Trevaskis, Scott Borthwick, Matty Potts

Weather Conditions

Leeds have a dark and cloudy weather with 60-70% chances of rain. We expect the match to go ahead with slight rain interruption and not to affect the entire game

Venue Details

Leeds is a slight two-paced wicket where the ball might behave unpredictably. In the first match both teams scored 220+ runs but in the second match teams never crossed 150-run mark. We expect the runs to be around 150-160 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing is the best option as the pitch is slightly unpredictable and early moisture content might help the bowlers too.

YORKS vs DUR Winning Prediction

Yorkshire comfortably has better experienced players in form of Willey, Rashid, Lockie Ferguson, and Dawid Malan who has represented the national team for a long time.  But Durham will take confidence of the fact they have already won over the Yorkshire this season. Yorkshire will miss the services of Johnny Bairstow who was in red hot form. Yorkshire also has home conditions to their advantage and we expect them to win this match and go 1-1 against Durham this season.

YORKSHIRE WILL WIN THIS MATCH.
