Yorkshire will be keen to make a strong comeback when they take on Leicestershire in the North Group game of Vitality T20 Blast at Headingley at Leeds.

In their previous match, Yorkshire suffered their first defeat of the competition against Durham. The side will be keen to make amends and put in an improved batting performance in this fixture.

On the other hand, Leicestershire suffered narrow defeat at the hands of Durham. With this result, Leicestershire are currently lying at the bottom of the league table. Captain Colin Ackermann will be hoping that the side can learn from their mistakes and put in a better show in this contest.

Yorkshire Preview

The team management will be hoping that the side can come with better plans for the final overs of the innings.

In the previous game against Durham, Yorkshire won the toss and opted to bowl first. The decision proved to be a correct one as Yorkshire bowlers put in excellent performance to reduce Durham to 95 for 6 after 12.2 overs. Yorkshire looked complacent against likes of Brydon Carse and P Coughlin, who scored a lot of runs in the final eight overs of the innings.

For Yorkshire, medium-pacer Jordan Thompson was the standout bowler on display and claimed 4 for 44 in his four overs. Pacer Lockie Ferguson bowled well and claimed two wickets in the previous match.

In the batting department, the onus will be on the likes of Jonny Bairstow, Dawid Malan and Tom Kohler-Cadmore to deliver the bulk of the runs.

In the previous encounter, Jonny Bairstow was the standout player with the bat for Yorkshire. He played exceedingly well and finished the innings with the top-score of 67 runs off 50 balls with the help of nine boundaries and one six.

Besides Bairstow, Harry Brook showed excellent form with the bat and scored 41 runs off 27 balls with the help of two fours and two sixes.

The likes of Dawid Malan and Tom Kohler-Cadmore will have to deliver runs for the side in this fixture.

Yorkshire Predicted Playing XI:

David Willey (captain), Adam Lyth, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Dawid Malan, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Harry Brook, Will Fraine, Jordan Thompson, Matthew Waite, Lockie Ferguson, Adil Rashid

Leicestershire Preview

The county side has suffered back-to-back defeats in the competition. Leicestershire will have to raise their game with bat and ball in order to end their losing streak.
