THE LOWDOWN

Durham begin their Blast campaign without key white-ball players such as Ben Stokes and Mark Wood but the influence of international players will still be felt as David Bedingham is due to make his T20 debut for the northerners. They come up against a Yorkshire Vikings team dripping with talent and serious depth. Their victory over Birmingham Bears yesterday featured a lineup involving Adam Lyth, Jonny Bairstow, Dawid Malan, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, David Willey, Adil Rashid and Lockie Ferguson. A seriously impressive domestic side.

THE PREDICTION

With that aforementioned Yorkshire lineup in mind, it is likely the Vikings will head into nearly all, if not all, of their matches as the heavy favourites. The likes of Brydon Carse will look to get early incisions into the Yorkshire top-order but Yorkshire’s opening partnership of Lyth and Bairstow is both exciting and experienced.
