2012 was the most successful season for the Yorkshire Vikings when they ended up being runners-up, falling short by just 10 runs in the final against Hampshire at Cardiff.
In a repeat of the 2017 season, they failed to finish in the top four last year and ended up fifth in the North Group standings with seven wins and as many losses. Yorkshire got off to a pretty good start with three wins in their first four matches but struggled to maintain consistency thereafter.
Adam Lyth scored the most runs (401) for the Vikings last time and Steven Patterson was the pick of their bowlers with 12 wickets.
