Re: we need to strengthen the batting, but who

I'd replace Gale and Hodd with Hail and God....

One when we need bad weather to save us and the other when we need the power of prayer.

wicketkeeper batsman

September 26 2016, 5:39 PM 

one thing we really need is wicketkeeper - batsman and the big problem is that if j Bairstow returns from England duty he will have to tow the line and just play as a batsman because you are not going to get a good one who will stand aside when Bairstow returns as and when .

Another extremely negative by-product of the ECB's central contract is that it turns assembling a competative team into a crap shoot, as well as punishing teams like Yorkshire who turn out the better cricketers only to see them taken away often for years at a time. A one-sided policy culminating in the fiasco Lords', whereby our two top bats were denied us, our overseas signing was press-ganged back to Australia with one match left in the Yorkshire achedule, and our top spinner cried off.


There has to be a better, fairer, more balanced system.

What on earth does the central contract system have to do with Rashid wanting a rest and Lehmann getting recalled by his home state?

There might be a chance of a "fairer" system if the counties were able to stand on their own feet financially. They mostly can't, so we have the current system.

East Coast: It has EVERYTHING to do with the contract system since holding out both Root and Bairstow MAGNIFIED the losses of Lehmann (our most consistent batsman), and Rashid. The Lehmann issue alone should have resulted in the ECB being more flexible. After all, we would still have been short three first team players.

Besides the ECB's (e)mission statement notes that one of their reasons to be is to "raise standards at all levels and promote cricket as a spectator sport." I would suggest that the ECB's harsh decision to keep out Bairstow in particular, reduced the competitive aspect of the game and was not in the best interests of BOTH of the counties involved.

in the case of lehmann being recalled, surely we could have signed a replacement overseas.

Whilst I have some sympathy for the Bairstow situation (even though he doesn't have a central contract so, again, not sure how you blame the central contract implementation for this)to blame the ECB for Yorkshire's inability to secure an overseas player for the duration of the season is quite some leap.

Daryl Mitchell sacked as Captain, maybe a possibility for us to fill our middle order problems? Depends on how "hurt" he feels.

Unlikely to be away with England, but a good solid county pro and bowls a few dibbly-dobblies.

Re: wicketkeeper batsman

and why do we want a cast off from Worcester?

We need an overseas player to bat at 3 who would be available all season. Purjara would an ideal choice subject to availability, but there must be others.

Ballance drops to 4. Bres, Leaning, Gale, Rashid and Rhodes fill 5 and 6.

Gale stays and captains.

Think Mitchell could do a good job for us.

No player should automatically stay when performances are consistently poor.

Sid ---- Great idea in theory, but in practice?

Could be no Ballance & Rashid (away with England) and no Gale (as he is considering his position). After a first 3 of Lees, Lyth & the overseas, I would not bank on a 4 to 11 of Leaning, Rhodes, Bresnan, Hodd, Rafiq, Patterson, Brooks & Siddy scoring us many runs.
