Northamptonshire will confront Yorkshire at their own ground: Yorkshire vs Northamptonshire NG Vitality Blast T20 2019

David Ripley‘s men will confront Yorkshire in their own ground for win. Yorkshire is also determined to win the game. Both teams are still winless in the tournament and if rain won’t come to mediate, the game will be a contested one.


Steelbacks endured the worst campaign at the last year’s edition of T20VitalityBlast tournament. They ended their campaign by remaining at the dead end. It’s a big challenge for them to turn around the result in this year’s edition? Can they? The answer can’t be given as the season just begins. But, the starting isn’t promising as they’ve lost the first game.

Vikings finished their last season from 5th position. The beginning of them in this current season isn’t that convincing. Yorkshire’s first game washed out while they lost their second game vs Derbyshire. They need to get back into the form if they want a better result than the previous year.

The pressure is on David Ripley’s men more than Andrew Gale‘s men. Northamptonshire tolerated a shameful past season. Their starting is also not good in this season. It will be a big challenge for this team’s players to find back their rhythm and get back into winning ways as soon as possible.
