Yorkshire have signed up six players to the 2021 Academy. Here, head coach Richard Damms talks us through each player’s role, ability, aims and potential.
“Yash is a top order batsman who bowls off-spin. He’s an exciting all-round cricketer and a very intelligent lad with it as well.
“He comes from Hartlepool, that’s his club. He’s only recently joined them having played up at Middlesbrough for a long time. He scored a hundred for them opening the batting the summer before last and took two cheap wickets in the same game.
“We think very highly of Yash, and he’s got a very bright future in the game, both in red and white ball cricket.
“He’s very athletic and is also a good fielder.
“He’s a great lad who is a pleasure to work with.
“He hasn’t actually played very much Academy or second-team cricket for us. The pandemic certainly hasn’t helped in that regard. He will be looking to push for as much second-team cricket this summer as possible.”
