Vitality T20 Blast 2018

YOR vs DUR Vitality T20 5th Match | Yorkshire Vikings vs Durham WHO WILL WIN

In the upcoming match of the Vitality T20 2018, Yorkshire and Durham will lock horns for the first time in the tournament and it promises to be a thrill ride for everyone. Both these teams from the North Group would want to start their journey with a win.

Venue:-Headingley, Leeds

Match Timing:- Thursday, July 5th, 2018, 06:30 PM LOCAL

Yorkshire Vikings would want to kick off this year’s T20 campaign differently than they did in the last year. With just six wins and five defeats in all the games they have played, they missed out on reaching to the semi-final which they did in 2016 and ended up being the fifth team on the points table. Despite being terrific with the bat, Vikings fell short in some important matches in the last season and it remains to see if they have learned from their mistakes.

However, on the other hand, Durham also had a terrible season last year out as they finished 9th on the points table and their performance wasn’t commendable either. They would want to repeat their heroics of 2016 in this season as well when they reached the final and lost the game to Northamptonshire.

I always hate talking about myself because it feels weird to talk about myself honestly. Ever think that it's weird? No? Just me? My bad. Always hungry, always sleepy and in between always writing. Hope you won't mind!
