The pitch at Chester-le-Street has been offering assistance to both batters and bowlers. Stroke-making has not been easy, especially against the spinners. However, the batters can look to take on the bowlers after spending some time at the crease. The skipper winning the toss might want to bowl first.
Probable Playing XIs:
Graham Clark, Michael Jones, Oliver Robinson (wk), David Bedingham, Ned Eckersley, Ben Raine, Paul Coughlin, Scott Borthwick, Liam Trevaskis (c), Nathan Sowter, Andrew Tye
Adam Lyth (c), Will Fraine, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Jonathan Thompson, Harry Brook, Jonathan Tattersall (wk), Matthew Revis, Dominic Drakes, Dominic Bess, Jack Shutt, Dominic Leech
Probable Top Performers
Probable best batter of the match
Opening batter Adam Lyth stroked an excellent fifty in his last outing against Warwickshire and helped his side to win the game comfortably. The left-handed batter will be looking to continue his good form and give a flying start to his team in the next match as well.
Probable best bowler of the match
The Australian pacer Andrew Tye is in some good bowling form in the ongoing tournament. The right-arm pacer scalped three crucial wickets for his side in the previous match and gave away just 29 runs in his four-over quota. Tye will want to emulate his performance against the strong batting line-up of Yorkshire as well.
