Yorkshire in the news

Joe Root isn't the only Yorkshire player to hit the headlines over the past week or so.

Adil Rashid launched his own cricket academy in Bradford last weekend. The coaching staff at the Adil Rashid Cricket Academy will also include Yorkshire's Moin Ashraf and Joe Sayers, Nottinghamshire's Ajmal Shahzad and Lancashire's Saj Mahmood.

Congratulations also go to Under-19 trio Ryan Gibson, Josh Shaw and Jonny Tattersall - all named in the England party to tour South Africa in January/February. 

And Yorkshire's new recruit Jack Brooks, long on the county's wanted list, talks about his ambitions for the new season today, among them international selection and helping his new team-mates win the LV= County Championship for the first time since 2001.
