<div><h2><strong>Yorkshire Vikings vs Durham Jets</strong></h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/cricket/eng/t-20-vitality-blast/yorkshire-vikings-vs-durham-3838643/?mtid=6" target="_blank" title="Yorkshire Vikings vs Durham Jets Odds Board"><strong>Friday 16 August 2019 at Headingley</strong></a></p><p>Durham are in the mix for qualification from North Group and they can stay there with a win over a Yorkshire Vikings who, for a club of their stature,<a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/cricket/cricket-vitality-blast-2019-betting-complete-guide/90331/" target="_blank"> have been desperately disappointing</a>.</p><p>Yorkshire are bottom of the section with one win in six matches and although they have had three washouts, they can’t complain that they have been any way hard done by. They are a poor team.</p><p>What hasn’t helped is injuries to the bowling group. Adil Rashid, the England World Cup winner, has joined Josh Poysden and James Logan on the sidelines. These three are the core of the spinning department. None of them will play again this season. The seamer Matthew Fisher is also out with a dislocated shoul-der.</p><p>Indicative of a team in flux is the situation with captain Steve Paterson. Paterson has lost confidence in his white-ball game and has dropped himself, leaving Tom Kohler-Cadmore to lead. Gary Ballance has been named in the squad for this one but he is still struggling with a knee issue.</p><p>That makes Yorkshire heavily reliant on the likes of Adam Lyth, David Willey and Tim Bresnan but not surprisingly they have had problems keeping things tight in the field. They conceded 207 against Derbyshire Falcons last time out, Leicester-shire Foxes busted 200 (admittedly in defeat) when they were in the doldrums and Worcestershire Rapids made light work of a stiff chase.</p><p>It has to be said, therefore, that Yorkshire at odds on for this one has to be one of the worst prices we have seen all season.

They are hardly world beaters but they have shown more organisation, discipline and guts than Yorkshire. They could do with a pick-me-up after disappointing ef-forts against Northamptonshire Steelbacks and Lancashire but showed nerve in getting over the line against Derbyshire thanks to a D’Arcy Short blitz.</p><p><strong>Best Bet:</strong></p><ul> <li>Back Durham Jets 2.25 <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=153&amp;a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top rated bookmaker">Betfair</a></li></ul><div> </div><div style="text-align:center"><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=162&amp;a=ec641d03-1e6d-4096-9f5f-d2a6939022d0&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://cmscdn.staticcache.org/assets/image/0005/1349915/Biggest-Ever-Bet-Boost-1280x480-English-UK.jpg" style="width:100%" /></a></div></div>
