The seamers will usually get plenty of assistance from the surface. Having said that, the batters just need to play long and there will be challenging for them to tackle the pacers. It’s going to be an interesting first hour of play and whoever dominates that period will have a better edge in this match.

George Hill is the leading run-scorer for Yorkshire with 195 runs. He has also picked up 4 wickets, but didn’t get the chance to bat in the last 2 matches. It’s worth a risk to pick him as your fantasy team skipper.
