Only 8.1 overs possible as Durham v Yorkshire is abandoned in T20 Blast

Durham v Yorkshire Vikings – No result

Play was abandoned due to rain after only 8.1 overs in the Vitality Blast contest between Durham and Yorkshire Vikings at Seat Unique Riverside.

The home side won the toss and made an excellent start with the ball as George Drissell’s first over went for just a single before Ben Raine followed up his efforts with a wicket maiden removing Adam Lyth for one.

Vikings captain Shan Masood led a fightback in the powerplay, smashing Raine over the long-off boundary for the first six of the game to propel his team to 34 for one at the end of six overs.

Masood led an acceleration to leave Yorkshire one shy of the fifty-run mark in the ninth over before rain stopped the action. The downpour continued through the evening to prevent further play, ending the game with both sides taking a point apiece.

The result effectively ends Durham’s hopes of qualifying for the quarter-finals, while Yorkshire still have a chance of a last-eight berth heading into their final North Group game against Lancashire Lightning.
