Yorkshire will be locking horns with Lancashire in a North Group fixture of the T20 Blast 2022 at Headingley on June 8 (Wednesday). Both teams have been really impressive so far as they occupy the top three spots in the standings. Yorkshire are in the third position with three wins, two losses, and a tie from six matches. They have seven points to their tally. Yorkshire come into this clash after an impressive 23-run victory over Nottinghamshire.
Lancashire, on the other hand, have been one of the consistent sides in the ongoing season. They sit comfortably at the top having registered four victories from five games with the other match being a tie. They have nine points to their tally at an outstanding net run rate of +1.195. More importantly, Lancashire are yet to taste defeat this season.
Lancashire survived a scare in their game against Northamptonshire where they ended up registering a hard-fought two-wicket win with one ball left. Prior to their clash against Yorkshire, they would be in action against Leicestershire on June 7 and would be hoping to head into their next game on the back of a win.

The Headingley wicket will be a belter where the ball would be expected to come nicely onto the bat and the batters would be eager to make merry on this surface once they are well set in the middle. A run-fest is pretty much on the cards and the bowlers will find it extremely difficult to maintain their lines and lengths on this pitch. Batting will be easy in the second innings and therefore, the captain winning the toss will look to bowl first.
Probable playing XI:
Adam Lyth, Finn Allen, David Willey (c), Harry Brook, Will Fraine, Jonathan Tattersall (wk), Jordan Thompson, Adil Rashid, Dominic Drakes, Matthew Revis, Dominic Bess
Philip Salt (wk), Keaton Jennings, Liam Livingstone, Dane Vilas (c), Tim David, Steven Croft, Luke Wells, Danny Lamb, Luke Wood, Tom Hartley, Richard Gleeson
Probable Top Performers
Probable best batter of the match
Tim David has been one of the most reliable batters for Lancashire and has also been in splendid form in the last couple of months. The Singaporean cricketer scored a precious 42 runs from 26 deliveries and successfully anchored Lancashire’s chase against Northamptonshire just when they seemed to lose the plot. The onus would be on the youngster to deliver with the bat yet again.
Probable best bowler of the match
Dominic Drakes was the most effective bowler for Yorkshire in their last fixture against Nottinghamshire. He completely applied brakes on Nottingham’s batters during their stiff-run chase as he accounted for some of their important batters. Drakes was the pick of the bowlers for his side and finished with figures of 3/31 from his four overs.
Today’s match prediction: Lancashire to win the match.
