T20 Blast 2020: Yorkshire vs Durham – Fantasy Tips
They are finding it tough with the top batsmen in the lineup failing to find their form. Further, the middle-order is inexperienced and the bowling department is failing on a consistent basis. If there could be any player, who can change the fate of Durham, it has to bee Lees and Farhan Behardien. Coughlin has been consistent.
The key players of the team are in hold for the reports of the Covid-19 Test. Thus, it will be an interesting selection for this contest. However, Dawid Malan is the safest option from this side to go forward alongside Adam Lyth and Pillans.
Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:
Captain – Dawid Malan, Adam Lyth
Vice-captain – Coughlin
