Three Yorkies in England Deaf Squad for Ashes
The ECB today included three Yorkshiremen in the England Deaf squad for the forthcoming tour of Australia in January 2011.
The squad will play one Test match during the Ashes Series for Deaf Cricketers, followed by two One Day Internationals and three Twenty20 matches as part of a Tri-Series against Australia and South Africa in Geelong.
England will be looking to win back the trophy currently held by Australia after their last encounter in 2008 ended in a draw.
