Ranji Trophy 2022 | Sarfaraz Khan slams fourth ton; Twitteratti demands for India call-up
23 June 2022
Worcestershire will be up against Yorkshire in the 96th match of the English T20 Blast 2022. The North Group clash will be played on Thursday (June 24th) at New Road, Worcester, United Kingdom.
Worcestershire is having an awful T20 Blast as they have lost eight of their ten league stage games while one of their fixtures was abandoned due to rain. With just 3 points in their kitty, the Royals are reeling at the bottom of the North Group points table.
Worcestershire's previous match against Northamptonshire was called off due to rain. Prior to that, they were outplayed by Leicestershire. Batting first, the Colin Munro-led side displayed an abysmal batting performance, putting up just 116 runs in the first innings. Leicestershire, in reply, went on to chase the target in just 13 overs with eight wickets in hand.
On the other hand, Yorkshire are having a topsy-turvy season, winning five of their ten league stage fixtures. They currently occupy the sixth spot in the North Group standings with 11 points to their name.
The team lost against Derbyshire by six wickets in their most recent fixture. After putting to bat first, Yorkshire Carnegie racked up 175 runs on the board. Derbyshire, in reply, chased down the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern reduced target of 105 runs with two balls to spare.
