DUR vs YOR: Durham will play their season’s opening game against Yorkshire in a North Group T20 Blast 2021 fixture at Riverside Ground, Chester-le-Street.
While Durham is playing their opening game, they’ll be met with Yorkshire who is walking into this encounter with a win over Warwickshire. A complete all-round performance from the team with the bat and ball helped them secure a six-wicket win in their season opener. Jordan Thompson starred with the ball on 3/23 in the match.
Durham will be playing first up against the likes of star players Bairstow, Malan, Willey and Rashid etc. After a rather average season last year, they’d be looking to make a strong impact in their first game to announce their arrival. They lack the firepower in front of Yorkshire but have the potential to win games.
