Yorkshire Vikings vs Birmingham Bears Preview

  • Birmingham Bears batter Adam Hose is in excellent batting form, having scored 110 runs off 53 balls in the previous match.
  • Yorkshire Vikings’ opening partnership’s inconsistency is a major concern heading into this match.
  • Yorkshire Vikings have won three of the last five head-to-head meetings between these two teams, while the Birmingham Bears have only won one.


In the 2022 Vitality Blast, Yorkshire Vikings will face Birmingham Bears. On Friday, July 1st, the game will begin at 18:30 local time in Headinley, Leeds.

Yorkshire Vikings are fourth in the North Group, but they are only one point behind the three teams ahead of them. This season, they have won seven games, lost four, and tied one. Last Friday, the Vikings defeated the Steelbacks in Northampton. The Steelbacks were one point ahead of the Vikings going into the game, but Yorkshire won by 62 runs. Harry Brook, an England hopeful, scored 67 runs off 31 balls and was well supported by David Willey, Jordan Thompson, and Matthew Waite in the lower order. Waite took 3-18 with the ball, with Willey, Shadab Khan, and Dom Bess each taking two wickets.

Birmingham Bears currently lead the North Group table. They have 16 points from 12 games, but their participation in the knockout stage is still uncertain because they are only two points ahead of fifth-placed Northamptonshire Steelbacks. After a sloppy start against Worcestershire Rapids last week, the Bears have won three of their last four Blast games and have been completely dominant. Adam Hose hit 110 not out from 53 balls before spinner Danny Briggs claimed 4-25 and the Rapids were dismissed for 84. At Edgbaston, the Bears’ Ollie Stone and Jake Lintott each took two wickets.
