Outfoxed

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.
