Vitality Blast 2019
One fixture Twenty20 fans will want to keep an eye out for is when the Yorkshire face Lancashire at the Emerald Headingway Cricket Ground in Leeds on the 25th of July. The two teams will then face again in Manchester at the Emirates Old Trafford on the 9th of August. Both games will be key in where both teams place in the Vitality Blast: North group table this year. Vitality Blast is professional Twenty20 game and it is only the second time this competition has been run with Worcester Rapids winning the title last year. Yorkshire were unfortunately knocked out of the competition by Nottingham by eight wickets with only six balls left in the game.
Lets hope that the Yorkshire Vikings can progress further in this years competition and possibly go on to win it. But anything can happen in the game of cricket so only time will tell.
