The North Group is incredibly close at the top of the table with the teams, including Yorkshire, from 1st to 6th all on eight points. The Vikings had not won a match until four games ago but are now targeting their fifth successive victory.
Yorkshire’ last victory, a 30 run win over Leicestershire Foxes, was all the more impressive after losing openers Adam Lyth and Dawid Malan for single-figure scores. The Vikings slumped to 78-7 before David Wiese (50 not out) and Ben Mike (30 not out), took them to a competitive total.
Tuesday evening was a night to remember for bowling all-rounder Jordan Thompson who produced his best T20 bowling figures of 5-21 in his 86th T20 match. Thompson dismissed three of Leicestershire’s top four batters and is an experienced bowler in domestic T20 competitions.
Yorkshire have completely turned their season around with four victories from their last four matches.

After a brilliant start to the Vitality T20 Blast 2023, the Rapids have stuttered in their last two games and been defeated by Northamptonshire Steelbacks by 6 wickets and Lancashire Lightning by 4 wickets. However, they are still top of the table coming into this game.
New Zealand all-rounder Mitchell Santner top scored for the Rapids with 57 runs from 33 balls in the defeat to Lancashire Lightning. The Kiwi has recently arrived after playing for the IPL winners, Chennai Super Kings, and his batting has developed a huge amount over the last 24 months.
There were two wickets each for Dillon Pennington and Pat Brown on Wednesday evening with Adam Finch also getting one dismissal. Brown was expensive against Lancashire Lightning but has picked up an impressive 14 wickets so far in the campaign.
Worcestershire come into this match looking to avoid their third successive defeat and will be wary of how many teams are close to them in the North Group table.

Two teams in contrasting form go head to head in this match but we are not expecting a one-sided contest in Leeds. Worcestershire will be competitive with bat and ball but may not be able to stop Yorkshire who have been able to win from all positions in recent games. Our prediction is for Yorkshire to get the victory.
