Yorkshire Vikings had a tough 2023 Vitality Blast campaign with only six victories in the group stage. This year, they aim for significant improvement but will be without key players Jonny Bairstow, Adil Rashid, and Harry Brook, who are in England’s T20 World Cup squad.

YOR Team Batting

Despite their struggles last season, Yorkshire boasts experienced and talented left-handed batters at the top. Adam Lyth and Dawid Malan will be crucial in setting a strong foundation against Worcestershire’s bowling attack.
