The first encounter at Riverside Ground, Chester-Le-Street will be played between Northamptonshire and Durham. This will be their first match of the Vitality T20 Blast and their only motive would be to grab the win in their very first game.
Northamptonshire of North group would lock horns against Durham in the 6th fixture of Vitality T20 Blast at Riverside Ground, Chester-le-Street on Friday, July 19.
Durham ended up their run on the 2nd spot of the North Points table last year and now this year they might seem highly motivated and possibly lift the trophy in this edition.
Northamptonshire was the most disappointing team of the North Group last year. They finished last at the points table with just two wins in 14 matches. We hope them to showcase a better performance this year to regain respect.
