Cricket Betting Tips and Fantasy Cricket Match Predictions: Vitality T20 Blast 2021 - Yorkshire Vikings vs Birmingham Bears - June 10
The Vitality T20 Blast 2021 North Group match between Yorkshire Vikings and Birmingham Bears will be played at Emerald Headingley.
Birmingham Bears will be coached by Mark Robinson and led by Will Rhodes this year. The team finished Third (Central Group) in the Vitality T20 Blast 2020.
Sam Hain (284 runs, average 56.80) was the top run scorer for Birmingham Bears in 2020 while Olly Stone (14 wickets, average 17.50) picked up the most wickets in the last edition of the Vitality T20 Blast.
Carlos Brathwaite (West Indies – whole tournament), Pieter Malan (South Africa – whole tournament) are their overseas players.
Carlos Brathwaite is the player to watch out for Birmingham Bears. The West Indies all-rounder is a marquee signing and the Bears will look to him in terms of both performance and personality to drive their young and evolving side.
Yorkshire Vikings will be coached by Andrew Gale and led by David Willey this year. The team finished Fifth (North Group) in the Vitality T20 Blast 2020.
Adam Lyth (308 @ 38.5) was the top run scorer for Yorkshire Vikings in 2020 while Matthew Fisher (8 @ 15.25), Jordan Thompson (8 @ 25.5) picked up the most wickets in the last edition of the Vitality T20 Blast.
Lockie Ferguson (New Zealand - whole group stage), Duanne Olivier (South Africa - whole tournament), Mathew Pillans (South Africa - whole tournament) are their overseas players.
David Willey is the player to watch out for Yorkshire Vikings. Captain and explosive all-rounder has only found rhythm for Yorkshire this summer following injury and unavailability - five years after leaving Northamptonshire. If he finds form, the Vikings could fly.
