Steelbacks Trounced

By Gary Watton

Northamptonshire have been the punch bag of the Twenty20 northern group, and the Vikings managed to fill their boots in what was ultimately a one-sided contest. Of course Josh Cobb did his utmost to ensure an awkward run chase, with the home team's cause assisted by two sixes from their final over. Then when Kohler-Cadmore didn't wish to put the scorer to any trouble, Yorkshire's pursuit looked briefly in peril. However Adam Lyth belatedly found some form after an uncomfortably long barren patch in this tournament, and he and the outstanding David Willey put on 150 for the second wicket. Willey is deputising as captain for the injured Patterson, and his contribution with bat and ball has left the Vikings needing 'only' to win at home to Nottinghamshire Outlaws tomorrow night to secure qualification for the last eight of the Vitality Blast Twenty20. However, such has been Yorkshire's inconsistent form, that I won't be holding my breath, maybe just clutching some straws instead.
