0 Have your say From Adil Rashid’s controversial decision to quit red-ball cricket, subsequently reversed, to another narrow escape from County Championship relegation, it has been a challenging 2018 season for Yorkshire. Chris Waters reports. FOR THE second successive season, Yorkshire finished fourth in the eight-strong County Championship First Division, a fair reflection on a performance that was middling at best.Whereas last year that left them only two points above seventh-placed Middlesex in the final relegation spot, this time they finished 25 clear of seventh-placed Lancashire, whose defeat at Emerald Headingley in mid-September proved crucial to the fortunes of the Roses rivals.It was, as such, progress of sorts, although the threat of relegation once more stalked Yorkshire for much of the year.Going into their final match at Worcester, they still needed two points to mathematically guarantee safety, an indication of how tight it was and, perhaps, … [Read more...] about So just where did Yorkshire CCC go wrong in 2018?

Root, who began his tenure last summer with home wins over South Africa and West Indies before a miserable Ashes winter, rates England’s battle for supremacy against India as his best campaign to date. The Yorkshireman described his team as a captain’s “delight” after they defended 245 on the fourth day of the fourth Specsavers Test to prevail by 60 runs as Moeen Ali (four for 71) broke India’s resistance to take an unassailable 3-1 lead with one to play.
