The Official Yearbook of The Yorkshire County Cricket Club.
The 117th edition of Yorkshire County Cricket Club’s Yearbook is packed with words and pictures which tell the pulsating story of how captain Andrew Gale and his team scooped county cricket’s greatest prize – the LV= County Championship title. Reports, scorecards and pictures cover the action from the very first ball of the season to the magical moment when they were acclaimed as victors. Adam Lyth and Alex Lees were the most successful pair of opening batsmen in the country and Jack Brooks ended up as Yorkshire’s leading wicket-taker with 68 victims, but it was a season in which everyone played a leading role at some stage or other to ensure that the team stayed ahead of all rivals, despite being without key players on some occasions due to Test calls. The Yearbook by no means concentrates exclusively on the Championship adventure, however, and it is the only publication to give full scorecards on all of Yorkshire’s limited overs games.
