Lancashire Stroll To Victory

By Gary Watton

Yorkshire's hopes of progressing to the last eight of the Vitality Twenty20 Blast were left hanging by a thread, after their neighbours across the Pennines cruised to a comfortable victory. The hosts did post a reasonably competitive and indeed daunting target, but the momentum appeared to swing after Faulkner claimed three Tyke wickets from the last four balls of the innings. This undid some majestic batting from David Willey earlier, after Adam Lyth had succumbed to yet another cheap dismissal. In the end, the chasing team kept the runs flowing and kept their wickets intact, ensuring a relatively pain-free Roses success. This setback leaves the Yorkshire puddings with very little margin for error in their remaining group fixtures.
