I cannot stress this enough. Bresnan/Hodd/Rafiq is not a strong enouh 6/7/8.Apr 7-10, 2017 - at Headingley, Leeds
Yorkshire will start the Championship season fielding one of their more depleted lineups in recent years with first teamers Jack Brooks, Ryan Sidebottom, Liam Plunkett and David Willey on the injury list or not match fit; and Adil Rashid, Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow unavailable. Australian batsman Peter Handscomb is set to make his debut for the county.
YORKSHIRE from: Gary Ballance (Capt), Tim Bresnan, Ben Coad, Peter Handscomb, Andrew Hodd (Wkt), Jack Leaning, Alex Lees, Adam Lyth, Steven Patterson, Azeem Rafiq, Will Rhodes, Josh Shaw, James Wainman.
Hampshire from: TBA
STAT: If Yorkshire win this match it will be their 1,200th County Championship win since the official Championship was established in 1890.
I appreciate its not our strongest choice but we need to do something about it.
