Yorkshire Vikings v Notts Outlaws – Betting Tips, Latest Odds, Team News and Predictions – 27/08/2020

Pre-tournament favourites Notts Outlaws begin their quest for T20 Blast glory with a trip to Headingley to face the Yorkshire Vikings.

Notts bowed out at the semi-final stage in 2019 and will be keen to add another title to their 2017 success.

Yorkshire won just four games last year and came fifth in the Northern Group. They will be hoping for a big improvement this time around.

Take a look at our free T20 Blast betting tips ahead of this opening contest.

Alex Hales to hit over 0.5 sixes at 1.83 with bet365.

Alex Hales to top score for Notts at 3.2 with LeoVegas

Adam Lyth to get more than 46.5 performance points at 1.83 with bet365

Yorkshire Vikings v Notts Outlaws – Match Preview

Yorkshire are an interesting proposition despite never winning the English domestic T20 competition before. The arrival of Dawid Malan has them dreaming of ditching the underachievers tag.

However, Headingley failed to provide any home comfort for the Vikings in 2019 as they didn’t pick up a single win.

Notts got the better of them in the last meeting at Trent Bridge but only by a narrow three-run margin.

Where: Headingley, Leeds

When: Thursday, 27 August

Start Time: 17:35 GMT (22:05 IST)

Pitch conditions: Headingley is traditionally quite a fair pitch for both batsman and bowler. It perhaps favours seam attack when there is good cloud cover. Headingley boasts the highest ever Vitality Blast score in England at 260/4 by the hosts in 2017.

Weather conditions: Rain is forecast for the start of this match, so a reduced contest could be in the offing. There is a 36% chance of rain with dark clouds overhead.

Yorkshire Vikings v Notts Outlaws – Team News

The addition of Dawid Malan could prove decisive for the Vikings as they look to make it out of the group stages for the first time in four seasons.

However, they will have to do without him and Jonny Bairstow at the start of the tournament due to their England commitments.

It means they will again look to the improving Tom Kohler-Cadmore and Adam Lyth for their firepower here.

One man that will give them a boost is England Test skipper Joe Root. He is available to feature now England’s Test series with Pakistan has come to an end.

The big blow for Notts is that left-arm bowler Harry Gurney will miss the Vitality Blast through injury. He has undergone shoulder surgery but won’t be able to feature in this year’s tournament.

He’ll be a big miss for the Outlaws after he took 22 wickets in 2019.

Harry Gurney bowling for Notts

They have lost experienced former England all-rounder Tim Bresnan to Birmingham Bears and Gary Ballance misses this game after suffering anxiety and stress during the coronavirus lockdown.

Vikings could eventually benefit from the skills of both David Willey and spinner Adil Rashid but, for now, they also remain in the England fold.

Notts, meanwhile, will benefit from Alex Hales’ continued absence from the England set-up. He’ll lead their batting attack once more.

Haseeb Hameed has arrived at the county this year but it remains to be seen whether or not he features in white-ball cricket.

Yorkshire Vikings v Notts Outlaws – Betting Tips and Prediction

While this is an interesting match-up to really kick-start the English T20 Blast, the Outlaws may prove a little too strong for the Vikings.

There is every chance this clash could be as close-fought as their previous meeting, especially with rain delays thrown into the mix.

There are also plenty of other odds to look at before the action gets underway.

Back Adam Lyth in the Player Performance Market

Adam Lyth was Yorkshire’s second-highest Blast run-scorer in 2019 and their highest wicket-taker. He smashed 379 runs and bagged 12 wickets in 10 matches.

He can be backed at 1.83 with bet365 to get over 46.5 performance points.

Don’t forget, he’ll get a point for every run he makes and 20 for every wicket. Add 10 for a catch in the field and he looks capable of reaching his goal.

Hales to Fire for Notts

Alex Hales is the dangerman in the Outlaws’ ranks and he can get off to a good start here.

He didn’t face too much competition from his fellow Notts players last season and his price of 3.2 with LeoVegas to be the Notts top batsman for this looks appealing.

There are other Hales bets to be interested in too. To hit over 26.5 runs is available at 1.87 with 888Sport.

He can also be backed to hit one sixes or over at 1.83 with bet365. All of these are worth considering ahead of the action.
