Yorkshire name a 13-man squad for the final NatWest T20 Blast group game.

Club Captain Gary Ballance is playing for the 2nd XI against Durham on Tuesday and Wednesday to test his fitness, before joining up with the squad on Thursday.

Overseas wicketkeeper-batsman Sarfaraz Ahmed will play his final game of the campaign for the Yorkshire Vikings.

Yorkshire’s 13-man squad to face Northants Steelbacks:

Gary Ballance, Tim Bresnan, Matthew Fisher,
Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Jack Leaning, Adam Lyth, Shaun Marsh, Steven Patterson, Liam Plunkett, Azeem Rafiq, Adil Rashid, Sarfaraz Ahmed (W), David Willey.

The skipper is back. Do we play him, as he has not played for us yet this season in this comp. so can hardly be expected to be in any kind of form?

If he plays who do we leave out for him?

I'd be surprised if he was included in the squad only to not play. Leaning to miss out?

Gary Ballance must play or he would be ineligible for the knock-out stages should we qualify.

Leave out Sarfraz - Ballance is probably a tidier keeper!

Ballance would be a more like for like replacement for Marsh in the way that they build an innings. But with the more explosive finishing power.

I suspect it'll be Leaning to miss out though, seen as he wasn't even entrusted to bat above Rashid against Leics.

Waite can't bowl at present, would be madness to play him ahead of Patto.

JollyD --- "Gary Ballance must play or he would be ineligible for the knock-out stages should we qualify."

On that basis, does that mean Root & Bairstow will not be eligible for Finals day (if we get there)?

I thought the ruling on eligibility was "being signed up" or words to that affect. What happens if one of your regular players gets injured and misses all the group games, surely if he recovered from his injuries, he would still be allowed to play in the k/o stages.
