Three wins can clinch County Championship title for Yorkshire says Andrew Gale
CAPTAIN Andrew Gale believes Yorkshire need three wins from their last five matches to clinch the LV= County Championship division one title.
The Tykes drew with Warwickshire yesterday when a rain-affected game ended with the Headingley visitors on 3-0 chasing 174 to win.
The stalemate extended Yorkshire’s lead at the top. They are ten points ahead of Sussex and 14 clear of Middlesex.
Gale said: “The results have gone for us. Who would have put money on Derbyshire beating Sussex away?
“I think three wins will take us home, but it depends who those wins are against. If we beat Durham at Scarborough and Sussex away each of those would be like two wins.”
Yorkshire trio Tim Bresnan, Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow were part of an England team that retained the Ashes when the third Test against Australia at Old Trafford ended in a draw.
Despite the problems caused by Test calls and injuries, Gale ruled out any chance of recruiting another overseas player.
