A decent batting performance from Yorkshire was not enough to get its second win in the T20 Blast 2019. Just one win from six matches has left Yorkshire in a tough spot and the team needs to start winning its matches right now.
Yorkshire is going to be playing against the Birmingham Bears, another side that has struggled, although it does have two wins from its five matches.
The teams at the top of the standings are opening up a slight gap between the rest of the teams and a win here will help the winner stay in touch.
Yorkshire vs Birmingham Bears T20 Blast 2019 is going to be played at Headingley, Leeds on the 4th of August 2019.
Adam Lyth and Tom Kohler-Cadmore played a good knock in the previous match to help propel Yorkshire to a total of 177. That total may not have been a giant one in the contest of the T20 Blast but it was still a very competitive one and Yorkshire would have been very disappointed at its bowling performance.
Not a single bowler was able to slow the down the rate of run-scoring and even the wickets came too late to make any real difference. Duanne Olivier was the only bowler that showed some willingness to try something new as Yorkshire looked short of answers posed to them by a strong batting unit.
We think Yorkshire should have an easier time against Birmingham, partly because its batting is not very strong and partly because we believe Yorkshire’s bowlers are not that bad.
The batsmen need to start pulling their weight and perhaps it is time to send Gary Ballance up the order where he deserves to bat rather than below pinch hitters like David Willey and Tim Bresnan. Yorkshire seems to be shooting itself in the foot at the moment and just need to keep things simple for a while.
Adam Lyth, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, David Willey, Harry Brook, GS Ballance, Jonathan Tattersall, TT Bresnan, Jordan Thompson, Dominic Bess, Duanne Olivier, Jack Shutt.
The Birmingham Bears were destroyed by Nottinghamshire in their previous match. Nothing went right for Birmingham as their bowlers gave away too many runs and then the batting just did not turn up.
We expect better from Sam Hain, Ed Pollock, Adam Hose, and Michael Burgess in the upcoming match. The Birmingham Bears are not a very strong side but its batting is pretty decent.
There are a number of batsmen in this side that can hit the ball a long way and play a match-winning inning if needed.
With Olly Stone back in the side, the Birmingham bowling is looking pretty sharp as well. The English fast bowler is going to be leading the attack which comprises of Fidel Edwards, Jeetan Patel, Ashton Agar, and Henry Brooks.
That is a good collection of fast bowlers and spinners. If the batsmen can do their job then the Birmingham Bears are going to be a tough side to beat for the Yorkshire Vikings.

The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first with all the rain around

Yorkshire vs Birmingham Bears is going to be played at Headingly, Leeds on the 4th of August 2019. There is a high chance of rain in Yorkshire on match day and we could have a rain-curtailed game if we have one at all.
The pitch at Leeds has been good for T20 cricket. It has had pace in it for the batsmen and very little grass to limit the amount of help to the bowlers.
Yorkshire is a strong side on paper but it is not playing to its potential or using the resources that it has wisely. Birmingham Bears have a weaker batting lineup but their bowling attack is bolstered by the presence of Ollie Stone. This could be a close game but we think Yorkshire may have just enough to prevail in home conditions.
Bet on Yorkshire to win.
