YOR vs DUR Dream11 Team: The visiting team, Durham will be upbeat after consecutive wins and would be looking to continue their winning momentum. Whereas, the Yorkshire team is coming into this game after consecutive losses. Both the teams have the same number of wins but due to the rain-affected match; Yorkshire is one spot above in the points table. With 3 league matches remaining, they have to pull their socks up and register few wins to get a quarter-final spot. With home advantage, the Yorkshire team would look to turn the fortunes in their favour. They have experienced players like Adam Lyth and Dawid Malan, who can be fierce at the top order for the team. The T20 specialist, David Willey leads the team whenever he is a part of the Playing 11. The middle-order looks solid with Will Fraine and Jordan Thompson proving the finishing touch to the team. On the other side, the Durham team has managed to win their last two matches and are high on confidence. The players like Alex Lees and Ben Raine have been the driving force of the team. The captain, Nathan Rimmington is an experienced campaigner who can prove to be very crucial in the crunch moments. The bowling department has been exceptional to keep the opposition in check and churning out wickets in a consistent manner. It would be interesting to see which team comes over the top and make their position strong in the competition. Below, the YOR vs DUR fantasy team Dream 11 prediction is discussed.
