Yorkshire and Northamptonshire, the struggling teams of the North Group of the Royal London One-Day Cup, will face off on Wednesday. Both the teams have featured in five matches in this tournament winning only one of those. Yorkshire began with a huge 235-run win against the Leicestershire before being involved in two Tied matches. They also lost to Lancashire by only one run.
These close results meant Yorkshire lost as many as four points due to their inability in seizing the last moments. On the other hand, the batting of Northants played the main role in the team’s failures as they have lost as many as three matches while chasing. They are coming on the back of a big defeat against the Pakistanis in the warm-up fixture where Joshua Cobb smashed an unbeaten 146.
