ADAM LYTH admitted Yorkshire Vikings have been "miles below par" in white ball cricket as their Vitality Blast quarter-final hopes were extinguished.

Lyth cut a frustrated figure after Sunday's defeat against Nottinghamshire at Trent Bridge, despite taking five wickets and hitting 48 with the bat, Yorkshire’s best ever all-round performance in T20 cricket.

The Vikings lost their fifth game in 12 to end their chances of quarter-final qualification with two games remaining.

Lyth said: “I’m happy with my individual performance, but it hasn’t got us the win unfortunately. It’s disappointing.

“It just shows where we’re at with our one-day cricket this year. We’ve done some good stuff and some not so good stuff.

“We needed 40 off 30 balls with six wickets left. We should have cruised home.

“Apart from about three overs, we’ve outplayed a good Notts team.

“We’ve been miles below par to where we need to be to even be close to winning a white ball trophy this year. It’s really, really frustrating.”

Yorkshire face Northamptonshire at Emerald Headingley on Thursday (6.30pm).
