130 games have been played and we are into the 1st Semifinal of the Vitality T20 Blast 2022. The Yorkshire Vikings would be facing a tough battle as they take on the confident Lancashire Lightning. The Vikings come here with a thrilling win against Surrey in their quarterfinal game. The Lightning on the other hand registered a comprehensive win against Essex Eagles in their last game.  

Yorkshire Vikings haven’t had the best record against Lancashire Lightning and them only twice in the last nine games between the two sides since the 2017 season of the tournament. They had lost against them earlier in the season and this would weigh on their minds. There would be pressure on both teams to perform and we shall see a tight contest in this game. 

Yorkshire Preview

David Willey’s side registered a thrilling win against Surrey. In a game where the fortunes shifted regularly, the side won by 1 run successfully defending 5 runs in the last over of the game. It would be a tougher challenge for the side against Lancashire having lost against them earlier this season. They had last qualified for the final in 2012 and Willey would like to see his players fire all cylinders in this game.  

Adam Lyth has scored more than 500 runs this season and he would look to set up a strong opening wicket stand with Finn Allen. In the middle order, the side would like to see partnerships between Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Willey, and Shadab Khan all of whom made runs in the last game. They have depth in their batting line-up and runs would be expected from Will Fraine, Jonathan Tattersall, and Jordan Thompson.  

Willey has bowled well, and he would look to set up a good opening wicket stand with Matthew Revis in this game. Dominic Bess and Shadab Khan have lots of experience under their belt and they must put this to good use in this contest. Lyth and Thompson will have to meet the challenge with the ball as Lancashire have big hitters of the ball in their squad.

Yorkshire Predicted Playing XI:

David Willey (c), Finn Allen, Adam Lyth, Tom Kohler-Cadmore (wk), Will Fraine, Shadab Khan, Jordan Thompson, Jonathan Tattersall, George Hill, Matthew Revis, Dominic Bess

Lancashire Preview

Dane Vilas’ side has made a confident entry into the semifinals. They come here with a 7-wicket win against the Essex Eagles in a game where their batsmen and bowlers played exceptionally well. They had defeated the Yorkshire Vikings in a thrilling contest earlier in the season and the side would like to put up a good show in this game and make it to the finals first time since 2015.  

Openers Tim David and Philip Salt shall look to set up a good opening wicket stand as they are up against a strong bowling attack. Steven Croft has had a wonderful season with close to 500 runs and he shall need to steer the middle order along with Dane Vilas and Josh Bohannon. Rob Jones, Luke Wells, and Danny Lamb can strike the ball hard, and they would look to add quick runs down the order.  

The bowling attack has done well in the tournament with Richard Gleeson in good form. He shall look to strike early in the company of Luke Wood. Tom Bailey also did well in the last game, and he would need to keep the scoring rate under check in the middle overs with Tom Hartley and Luke Wells. Yorkshire has good hitters of the ball on their side and Lancashire’s bowling attack must be on its toes.

Lancashire Predicted Playing XI:

Dane Vilas (c & wk), Keaton Jennings, Steven Croft, Tim David, Rob Jones, Luke Wells, Richard Gleeson, Luke Wood, Tom Hartley, Tom Bailey, Josh Bohannon

Weather Conditions

The skies over Birmingham would be clear on July 16. We are likely to see an excellent batting surface where batsmen would be able to play their strokes without any fear.  Bowlers shall have a tough time on this wicket with little help for them. The side batting first would aim at a score of more than 180 runs.

Venue Details

Edgbaston, Birmingham is a great batting surface and we have seen big scores being made here this season. The ball comes to the bat nicely allowing batsmen to free their arms. Fast bowlers do generate pace and bounce from this track, but spinners have always found it challenging to bowl on this surface.

Toss: To Bat

We have seen an excellent batting surface at Edgbaston and batting conditions are great at the start of the game. In recent games chasing scores have been a challenge as the wicket has slowed down. Thus, the side winning the toss in this high-pressure contest shall decide to bat first.

It is a high-stakes contest and there would be pressure on both teams to perform well in this game. Yorkshire Vikings have done well in the latter half of the tournament, but the side still has a few issues in the middle order that they need to sort out in this game. Lancashire Lightning has enjoyed an excellent run in the last few games and has a good record against the Vikings. This would make them favorites to win this contest and reach the final.
