Yorkshire bowled out for 198 against Bangladesh
Yorkshire’s batting in one-day cricket continues to struggle having been bowled out for 198 in today’s 50-over friendly against Bangladesh A at Headingley.
The Vikings have not been at their best in 40-overs and Twenty20 cricket this season, and the loss of six wickets for 49 through the middle of the innings undermined their chances of posting a challenging total.
They are still in the game, but are not favourites against a side packed with Test players. Liam Plunkett top-scored with 47 not out, while Adam Lyth hit 45.
Yorkshire were going nicely at 99-2 in the 21st over, but slipped badly in the face of left-arm spin duo Elias Sunny and Monimul Haque, who finished with five wickets between them.
It could have been even worse for the visitors, who were 148-8 before Plunkett and Iain Wardlaw (18) shared 49 for the ninth wicket.
Meanwhile, BBC broadcaster Harry Gration and Welcome to Yorkshire chief executive Gary Verity have been appointed to the club’s board with immediate effect.
“The club has a matrix of desired skills and experiences, which it uses to regularly assess the construction of its board,” said chairman Colin Graves. “Both Harry and Gary bring a wealth of marketing and profile raising abilities.
“Their knowledge and their standing across the county will enable us to raise the profile of the club and tap into new areas widening our appeal as an institution within the region.”
