Hodd a number 11 in t20.

The OPs starting XI is Yorkshire's strongest line up since 2012, possibly in the history of T20. Plenty of firepower and bowling options.

Unlike in previous years, Yorkshire will not have to worry about losing players to England because the white ball bowlers won't be on international duty until mid-september. Gone are the days where a makeshift number 3 in Hodgson or Rashid is fielded to balance the line up.

Playing two spinners of Rashid and Rafiq has been one of Yorkshire's key successes in the shortest format, particularly that the latter has a knack of picking up middle over wickets against well set batsmen. Not sure how Hodd can fit in the T20 team without devaluing batting strength or bowling options.

Because playing two spinners without a proper keeper devalues the team too

I think it's unfair to suggest Handscomb isn't decent, his keeping skills probably aren't up to Hodds but he has more experience in t20 at a higher level and the improvement in batting far outweighs anything lacked in keeping.

I like Stu's original team.

Whenever I've watched them in white ball cricket Rafiq and Rashid together just seem to get wickets.

With Handscombe available I can't see any way Hodd could get anywhere near the side.

I also agree with Stu's team. As others have said, I think Marsh should bat 3 as probably the best and certainly most experienced T20 batsman; my top 4 would probably be Willey, Lyth, Marsh, Kohler-Cadmore. Our side looks much stronger this year with the three England lads available along with two overseas players and the addition of Kohler-Cadmore; in previous years we always seem to have been relying on batsmen unsuited to the format like Hodd or Lees at the top of the order, inexperienced death bowlers etc etc, but this year we seem to have most bases covered. And of course we'll play two spinners, as does practically every side in white ball cricket these days.

Looks like Willey opened the batting last night against a Bradford league xi, Marsh in at 3 who scored 91 and Brook 57 in a 70 odd run win

Rhodes not Brook.

Willey 4-19 in their inns too.

Sorry, Rhodes yes. Fisher batted at 7 so I wonder if that's an indication he plays on Friday ahead of Waite?

Thought Stu's team at the top of the page was too good to be true. Plunkett's injury weakens us significantly.
