Despite falling to 78 for 7 while batting first, Yorkshire claims its fourth straight victory against Leicestershire. Yorkshire Vikings, who were defeated in each of their first three North Group games, improved to four wins from four games in the Vitality Blast by defeating Leicestershire Foxes by 30 runs at the chilly Uptonsteel County Ground.
Vikings Defended the Low Scoring Match
The Vikings, who chose to bat first, came back from a precarious 78 for 7 on a green-tinged pitch to post 156 from their 20 overs. All-rounder David Wiese finished on 50 not out from 32 balls and former Leicestershire all-rounder Ben Mike finished on 30 from 17, after the two set a Vikings record by adding 78 for the eighth wicket.
Jordan Thompson Registered His Career Best Figure
The Vikings’ most productive bowler was Jordan Thompson, who finished with a career-high 5 for 21, while 20-year-old leg spinner Jafer Chohan made an impression with 1 for 16 from four overs. Thompson’s career-best performance aided his squad in recording their fourth consecutive victory in the low-scoring contest.
David Wiese was named as the Man of the Match for his 50 of just 32 balls and helped the team to score a decent score after the huge collapse and eventually leads the team to the Victory.
