Dastardly Outlaws

In this erratic world, amidst all the upheaval, there is but one constant: Yorkshire cricket club's failure to get a handle on Twenty20 cricket. Yes there have been one or two near misses along the way, but the county remains some way short of the perpetually elusive Twenty20 success. Of course this campaign was undone by four defeats from our four outings with Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. Twenty20 cricket requires batting and thinking outside of the box, the latter attribute conspicuously lacking from Yorkshire CCC. The county persisted with big Bresnan for whom this proved to be a campaign too far. Equally inept was Gary Ballance who ekes out about a dozen runs from a dozen deliveries, when the absent Leaning might at least smite thirty runs off twenty balls. Yes once again the Tykes were the authors of their own misfortunes. Quite frankly, the quarter finals of the Vitality Blast Twenty20 is far better off without them.
