Here comes yet another game that can make a huge impact on the points table of North group in T20 Blast 2020. We have Yorkshire and Lancashire on the show tonight and it is going to be an intense clash, with both teams wanting to win this game at any cost. However, Lancashire has better chances with Yorkshire being hit by the Covid-19.
Unfortunately, Yorkshire misses the services of Dawid Willey, who tested positive for Covid-19. On precautionary measures, the other three cricketers Cadmore, Fisher and Poysden also removed from the squad. Thus, a young unit will take the field for Yorkshire while Lancashire has no concerns whatsoever and doing exceptionally in the ongoing season.

T20 Blast 2020: Yorkshire vs Lancashire – Fantasy Tips
They were badly hit by the loss of four top-class players, who have been performing on a regular basis. Now, they rely on Adam Lyth, Dawid Malan to do the job with the bat while Olivier and Coad will look after the bowling department.
They are boosted with the addition of Liam Livingstone, who has been splendid in the recent past for whichever side he played. Further, they have the likes of Alex Davies and Keaton, who can make things fall in place. In bowling, Tom Bailey and Parkinson will hold the key.
