I don't think anybody can seriously argue that we need another top class batsman. The club obviously believe KC is the man and if Leaning and one of the others kick on, so much the better.

Considering the age of our bowling attack it could also free us up to concentrate on recruiting a quality overseas bowler for a change from 2018.

I wonder if they see him as a potential opener to put pressure on Lyth and Lees, particularly the former, who hasn't kicked on.

To achieve that, he'll have to score a lot of runs for us, which is fine.

""...or just call him KC, which I will do!""

would that make the rest of our team the Sunshine Band?

Hopefully it never degenerates to KFC.

Tom raises a good point.

I suppose their are 4 options:

1: Most likely. He starts as opener in both T20 and One Dayers. Is back up in CC.

2: He challenges Leaning for the 5th spot

3: He adds batting depth at 6, pushing Bresnan to 7. This seems unlikely as will leave us a bowler short unless the longer term plan is for our nezt overseas player to be an all rounder.

4: He is considered an opener in CC. This could mean either Lees or Lyth bat 3. I seem ti recal years ago Lyth saying he likes to bat there. I have long felt we have relied on our overseas batsman at 3. Take away Root and overseas and 3 is a weak spot in the batting.

It's a good sign that, although David Willey said he hoped to improve his red-ball cricket with Yorkshire, the championship side has clearly been selected only on merit and no personal concessions have been made to him. I don't think they'll have made any promises to K-C either, though I'd expect him definitely to be selected in the shorter forms when the England players are away. As for the CC, I think he'll be in the mix, especially if Ballance is taken by England. Just what "the mix" will consist in is hard to predict at this stage - Leaning, Rhodes, Brook, Tattersall, Callis?
Brook scored a run-a-ball 127 against Leicestershire last week. That's at about the same age as when Root and Bairstow had a 300-run partnership to beat Leics. 2nds.

I don't think there is any need for Yorkshire to plan this to the nth degree as suggested by some above. I think they'll have identified KC as a batsman of great potential (with Yorkshire connections), and identified our squad as somewhat lacking in batting depth, and targeted him based on this. Where exactly he will slot in will depend on how others' careers have developed over the intervening months, what overseas player we may have etc- although I do agree that he's highly likely to slot straight into the white ball side following the struggles of the likes of Lees in these formats in recent seasons.
