It will be a big challenge for the Yorkshire Vikings as they take on the table-toppers Lancashire Lightning in the next game of Vitality T20 Blast 2022 at home. The Vikings did well in the last game against Notts Outlaws, but the side would have to work on its bowling. Lancashire Lightning has been in excellent form and the side defeated Leicestershire Foxes by a big margin.
Lancashire Lightning come into this game with their tails up. The side has won five games in a row and won them by big margins. They have played like a well-oiled machine with key players enjoying good form. Yorkshire Vikings have the home advantage, and it is still to be seen if they can stop the Lancashire juggernaut.
David Willey’s side comes into this game with a massive win. They did well with the bat against the Notts Outlaws to win it by 23 runs. However, this would be a tougher challenge as they play the strongest team in their group. Their recent record against Lancashire doesn’t inspire much confidence for the side and they will have to play extremely well to win here.
Adam Lyth and Finn Allen are the most dependable players on the side, and they shall need to offer a good start in this game. Willey has done well in the middle order, and he will look to steer the innings alongside Harry Brook and Will Fraine. Jonathan Tattersall and Jordan Thompson shall need to do the heavy lifting towards the end of the innings as they face a good bowling attack.
Willey and Dominic Drakes are bowling well but the rest of the bowling attack has struggled with its consistency. They can least afford to bowl poor lines against the strong batting line-up that Lancashire Lightning has. Adil Rashid will have a huge responsibility on his shoulders being the most experienced bowler on the side. Thompson, Jack Shutt, and Matthew Revis need to do well in the supporting role.

Dane Vilas’ side is at the top of its game. It was the fifth consecutive win for the side in the last game where they defeated Leicestershire Foxes by 7 wickets. The side has enjoyed a good record against Yorkshire over the last few seasons and this would add to their confidence. Vilas would like his men to show the same spirit as they have shown in recent games and retain their top spot on the points table.
Openers Keaton Jennings and Philip Salt have enjoyed good form and the pair shall look to make it count in this game. The middle-order is formidable for the team with the experienced trio of Steven Croft, Vilas, and Time David in the team. Liam Livingstone is one of the best hitters of the ball down the order and he would look to add runs with Danny Lamb and Luke Wood.
The bowling attack has done well in the last few games. Richard Gleeson is bowling good lines with the new ball, and he needs to get early wickets sharing the new ball with Wood. Matthew Parkinson and Lamb are troubling batsmen and shall have their confidence high. Livingstone, Tim David, and Tom Hartley add to the bowling options for the team making it strong.

There would be overcast skies over Leeds on June 08, and we are likely to see rains. The ball would move around making it a challenging surface for the batsmen. However, we have seen big scores at this venue this season, and the side that bats first shall be eying a total in the range of 170 runs.
Headingley, Leeds is a great venue for this format of the game. We have seen big scores here in the past as the ball comes onto the bat nicely which allows easy run-scoring. Fast bowlers generate pace and bounce off the surface and have done well. Spinners need to vary their pace as the surface isn’t conducive to spin bowling.
In three out of the five games played here the side chasing the score has gone on to win the game. Defending scores has always been a big challenge at this venue as batsmen can play their strokes freely. The side winning the toss here would opt for bowling first on this wicket.
Yorkshire Vikings come here with back-to-back wins. But the side faces a formidable opponent against whom they haven’t done well in recent years. Their bowlers shall have to be on the money for the side to win here. Lancashire Lightning has enjoyed an excellent run and hasn’t lost a game yet this season. This would make them favorites to win this contest.
