The 2022 Vitality Blast’s first semi-final pits the Yorkshire Vikings and Lancashire Lightning against one another, uniting the two Roses counties. The Vikings defeated the South Group champion, Surrey, by one run to advance to Finals Day. In the quarterfinal, Lightning defeated Essex Eagles by 7 wickets.
