Yorkshire Vikings will look to book a berth in the knockout stage as they face Northamptonshire Steelbacks in the 91st game of the Vitality T20 Blast 2023 at home. The Vikings suffered a crushing defeat in the last game against the Derbyshire Falcons. The Steelbacks had a rare good day at the office and won against the Notts Outlaws, and they will be confident.
Yorkshire Vikings have won the last eight games they have played against Steelbacks and had last lost against them in 2015. Their batsmen have been in good form, apart from the miserable show in the last game. The Steelbacks are out of contention for the next round, and it will be interesting to see if they can end their 8-year drought against the Vikings.
Shan Masood would look to overcome the disastrous loss against the Derbyshire Falcons in the last game. It was their worst performance of the season as they went down by 144 runs, getting bowled out for 68 runs. A win here will take them closer to the knockout stages, and Madood would look to exploit the lack of form in the Steelbacks' camp.
The side will need a strong start from Adam Lyth and Dawid Malan after both failed in the last game. The middle order is strong, and they can expect runs from Masood, James Wharton, and Jonathan Tattersall. The Vikings enjoy depth in the batting and will need contributions from Matthew Revis, David Weise, and Ben Mike in the lower middle order.
The bowling attack had a miserable day in the last game, and the side will expect early wickets from the experienced new ball pair of Wiese and Dominic Bess. Jordan Thompson and Bem Mile leaked runs, and they must bowl better lines. Jafer Chohan and Matthew Revis must bowl good lines in the supporting role.

David Willey's side defeated the Notts Outlaws in the last game. It was their fourth win, and they are already out of reckoning for a place in the next round. The side has been inconsistent this year and failed to use its momentum. They have an extremely poor record against the Vikings, and Willey would like to change that with a strong performance.
Ricardo Vasconcelos has done well, and the side will expect a good start in this game from him and Emilio Gay. Willey must anchor the innings in the middle order and add runs with Justin Broad and Saif Zaib. Rob Keogh, Andrew Tye, and Lewis McManus must do the heavy lifting in the final overs.
The bowling attack did well in the last game, but they face a tougher batting line-up. Early wickets from Ben Sanderson and David Willey will be necessary for the side. Freddie Heldreich and Tom Taylor must keep the scoring rate under check in the middle overs. The side will expect Andrew Tye to bring his experience to play and do well.

There are chances of rain during the game at Leeds, and the skies shall be overcast. The wicket has been excellent to bat, where the ball has come onto the bat nicely, allowing batsmen to play their strikes. The side batting first would need 180 runs on the board to win here.
Headingley, Leeds, is a great venue for T20 cricket. There is early assistance for the bowlers on this surface, but once the batsmen get set in, they can score easily on this wicket. The ball hits the bat hard and allows batsmen to free their arms. There is not much on this surface for the spinners as the ball doesn't turn here much.
Big scores have been made and chased down here at this venue, making it a very difficult wicket to set a score on. The captains would have this in their mind during the toss, and the one winning it would have little hesitation in bowling first.
Northamptonshire Steelbacks have been inconsistent. The batting has failed the side multiple times, and under overcast skies, their batsmen must deliver the goods for the side to win. The Vikings have won the last four games at home and have a strong batting line-up. It makes them favorites to win this game.
