YORKSHIRE and Tom Kohler-Cadmore both have scores to settle during tomorrow’s Vitality Blast Roses clash at Emirates Old Trafford (6.30pm).

The Vikings are looking to kick-start their North Group campaign with a second win in eight, one which would prevent leaders Lancashire from completing the double having won at Emerald Headingley last month.

Kohler-Cadmore, meanwhile, is looking to avoid an unwanted hat-trick against close mate Saqib Mahmood, the Red Rose fast bowler who has dismissed him twice in 2019.

Mahmood joked last week that he had got the wood on the White Rose opener, although the first game was a 50-over clash at Headingley in April when the Vikings batsman scored 97.

“He can think that, but we’ll see what happens tomorrow night,” said Kohler-Cadmore, with a smile, of his England Lions team-mate.

“But, yeah, he’s a really good lad, and we get on very well.

“The thing is though, you always want to hit your mates for six. And when they get you out, it hurts that little bit more.”

Mahmood, 22, has been excellent this summer. He has taken 32 wickets in both limited overs competitions - 28 in the one-day Cup and four in the Blast, including three in the most recent Headingley fixture.

He is surely on the verge of a full England call-up, and Kohler-Cadmore can see why.

“Saqib is an incredible performer,” he said. “He’s still young and very confident at the minute.

“He’s obviously a good bowler, but we feel like we can take anyone down on their day.

“It’s good fun, and it’s light-hearted banter when we’re out there. Hopefully I’ll get the better of him this time. They’re going to be favourites, but it’s T20 cricket. It’s about who plays better on the day.”

Kohler-Cadmore will captain Yorkshire should Steve Patterson leave himself out again like he did for Sunday’s home tie against Birmingham.

The former Worcestershire man did not actually play in last year’s game at Old Trafford, a defeat, with Joe Root available from England duty.

“Thanks for reminding me,” he reflected.

“The Roses game is massive, but missing any game of cricket hurts. It was just nice that I came in the game afterwards (73 in a home win against Birmingham), got runs and proved a point.

“But I’ve put everything in the past behind me and look forward to Friday night and hopefully put in a match-winning performance.”

The fixture will be played in front of a sell out 23,500 crowd, the highest domestic attendance for a Blast fixture outside of London.

“The atmosphere will be incredible, and we can use it to get us going,” added Kohler-Cadmore. “If you’re not up for tomorrow night, you shouldn’t be playing cricket.

“It’s the best fixture in county cricket, 100 per cent. Nothing comes close. And it’s all about who stays the calmest under pressure.”

Yorkshire have won one of seven group matches this season, losing three and earning a point apiece from two no results and a tie.

Unbeaten Lancashire have won five from seven, added to two no results. Those five victories have come in their last five outings.

Yorkshire could hand a T20 debut to South African Test left-arm spinner Keshav Maharaj, who has returned to Headingley ahead of two more County Championship appearances.

Maharaj took 20 wickets and scored 193 in three Championship matches prior to the start of T20 and will play in the forthcoming fixtures against Nottinghamshire at Scarborough and Somerset at Taunton.

The former Lancashire bowler is also registered to play in the remaining Blast group games and any potential quarter-final tie.
