YOR vs LAN Dream11 team tips for Vitality T20 Blast 2022
Top Tip: Best batter
YOR batter Adam Lyth has been among the top run-getters of the tournament this season. In 15 matches, he has managed 518 runs, spiced up with 59 fours and 22 sixes. He has scored at an average of 37 while maintaining a healthy run rate of 177.40. The 34-year-old cricketer is priced at 10.0 credits.
Top Tip: Best bowler
Jordan Thompson of YOR has been in good flow throughout the tournament. He has picked 17 wickets so far in the league in 15 games. Thompson boasts a four-wicket haul in this year’s tournament and has a good strike rate of 15.5. The 25-year-old can be added to fantasy teams for 9.0 fantasy points.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
YOR captain David Willey is the in-demand all-rounder for the fixture. The England international is priced at 10.0 credits but besides his batting prowess, has been very handy with the ball this season. He picked up 5 wickets in the last two games alone, and scored a handy 30 with the bat in the 1-run win in the Quarter-Final. With him being gone for national duties for the Final, he will want to ensure the team is as close to victory as possible.
As for the wicket-keeper spot, Yorkshire gloveman Tom Kohler-Cadmore will be the preferred pick over his Lancashire counterpart Philip Salt. He has seven catches from 11 innings, and was declared the Player of the Match for his 62 (48) in the quarter-final match against Surrey, which Yorkshire just about won by a run. The 27-year-old has contributed to 323 runs with the bat, and is available for a pricey 9.0 credits.
