August 12, 2021 12:00 pm
Match Predictions and Team Previews
It is the final group stage encounter in Group B and it is the clash between the top two sides as Glamorgan take on Yorkshire at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff. Both these teams have been in good form in the recent past this Royal London One-Day Cup.
Glamorgan are sitting pretty at the top of the points table with 10 points. They have lost just one game which was against Somerset (by one run). Apart from that, the Kiran Carlson-led side have been absolutely dominant. They have won four games and have had a couple of washouts as well. Their batting has fared well but it is the bowling that has really taken charge and have played a huge role in Glamorgan’s wins.
On the other hand, Yorkshire didn’t have a great start to this tournament. They had just one win after their first four games. However, the Gary Ballance-led have bounced back well and have won two out of their last three games (one washout). They are currently second on the points table with eight points. Yet, Yorkshire will need to win this game if they want to guarantee themselves a spot in the quarter-finals. Yorkshire’s batting was the one that disappointed in their losses while the bowling has been decent.
This is the first time in the history of the Royal London One-Day Cup that Glamorgan and Yorkshire are squaring off against each other. And the way Glamorgan have played in this tournament, they will start as slight favourites but don’t count Yorkshire out. In the other One-Day competitions, the Glamorgan-Yorkshire matches have always been closely contested ones.
