Do we know if Adil and Adam are back home - looking at their stats on EPSN, they have only played 2 and 1 games respectively in the BPL. Crazy!

I am sure Adam and Adil will have learned more in Bangladesh even with their lack of match involvement (such as batting against spin), than doing a pre-season session of yoga and cooking Japanese food.

Disappointing

I think they are still there but just aren't playing, their holiday will soon be over as the competition is nearly done with. Even Plunkett and Bresnan seem to have been dropped.

Lost interest to be fair without any of our lads playing.

Hardly suprising Adam is not getting a game when they have Chris Gayle & McCullum opening for his side.

Got his chance

Adam is playing in the final group game in the BPL for Rangpur this morning.

His team has not batted yet but he seems to have his catching hands on, he has pouched 3 already.

Presume it is on freesports channel 424.

(Thought I'd watch his batting, it didn't take long unfortunately.)

Just the 146* from 69 balls today for Big Chris. Andrew Gale seething.

Team game

Well he didn't play that much but Adam's team have won the competition so it's congratulations to him.

Hope there's a nice big Christmas winning bonus in it for him.

And if you believe KP then he will have benefitted from rubbing shoulders with t20 superstars even if it was from the dugout

and in training sessions where actual skills are worked on. Being in a t20 winning team in the off season sure beats playing 5 a side football for a winter training session.

Yes i'm absolutely baffled at Andrew Gale's suggestion that Adam and Adil can't 'learn much more' from being in the BPL. Lyth inparticularly has improved his T20 game immensely in the past 18 months. So no reason to suggest he's not got anymore scope for improvement.

I also saw Gale’s comments too Dwight. I was too baffled. Rubbing shoulders with 2 greats of the game or yoga? No brainer for me.

For most of his T20 career, Lyth would score a promising 30 off 20 balls but just could not kick on after that. Now his T20 batting is getting to a level with his BPL team mates McCullum and Gayle. I am sure Lyth would have enjoyed being in company of World Class players and asking for advice.

If anything is this good networking and any Yorkshire player participating in these tournaments will sure be mentioning about the white rose and T20 Blast. It may well be beneficial in finding an overseas player for future seasons.

Check out Adam's twitter feed. Case closed.

If he has learnt nothing out there then frankly he's an idiot. I don't think this will be the case.

I'm glad Adam went. Its definitely improved his bank balance and may have improved him as a Yorkshire T20 player.

I don't understand the 'case closed' comment. Surely the case can only move nearer to being closed if and when his performance improve? Even then it'll be hard to link improved numbers in Leeds in July to wintering in the Bangladeshi premier league.
