Adam Lyth's Sensational Ton
Adam Lyth was unquestionably the star of the show, as he tore up the record books with an exhilarating innings that lasted until the last few balls of Yorkshire's allotted twenty overs. Along with Kohler-Cadmore, Lyth added 127, and then for the second wicket the ace opener shared in a stand of 124 with Willey. Not wishing to disparage the efforts of his partners, Lyth (the bald eagle) dominated the proceedings with an eye-catching total of twenty fours and seven sixes. Ironically the Vikings could only muster a mediocre nine runs off the last deliveries which amounted to an anti-climax after the fireworks display of the first eighteen overs.
That's that for another year
London Leprechaun reports on our last T20 game this year via remote commentary. Along with the disapointing end to the campaign we get to sympathise wth umpires, get frustrated by radio glitches and end on a injury. Not a gret end to not a great few weeks cricket wise.

Can We Play You ABU Week
Kev reports on a comprehensive Middlesex win with credit due for Uxbridge with a reality check at end.
The Vikings' hopes of reaching the Twenty20 Blast quarter finals were all but ended by yet another painfully narrow defeat. Unfortunately for some peculiar reason an experienced Yorkshire team seem insufficiently streetwise to prevail in tight tussles, always ending up as the bridesmaid. The batting has been generally good, but the team has lost too many matches that were there for the taking. Today's encounter was no exception. The Tykes posted a highly competitive score, identical in fact to that which they recorded just the night before. However this time they were unable to defend their total and Leicestershire slipped past them in the final over. The result was tough on Kohler-Cadmore and Marsh who each made big contributions. Nevertheless the Yorkshire puddings go into the final round of matches needing to win against Northamptonshire and hope that other results go in their favour. Their chances appear to be really slim.
Brezza Crushes Lancashire's Resistance
The Yorkshire puddings kept alive their hopes of progressing in the Twenty20 Blast, courtesy of yet another triumph against Lancashire. The hosts made a sensational start, as their openers smashed 95 off only eight overs, but then the rest of the innings stuttered by comparison. Indeed such was the subsequent limp by the batting order that they could only muster a mediocre fifty-nine runs off the last nine overs. Therefore, at the halfway stage, the contest seemed to be finely poised.
Glamorgan plus one T20
A vague Southern group and a set of vague Somerset performances in terms of consistency create a 'must win' atmosphere at Taunton today. Glamorgan have a more certain future than we do but it seems two wins will put us through to the knock out stage.
