Plunkett latest to join Yorkshire

Have your say

YORKSHIRE have further added to their bowling resources by signing former England all-rounder Liam Plunkett from Durham.

The 27-year-old England all-rounder joins Jack Brooks, the 28-year-old England Lions seamer who joined from Northants last week. Plunkett, born in Middlesbrough, played nine Tests, 21 One-Day Internationals and one T20 International. He made his debut for Durham in 2003. Brooks, who has taken 118 first-class wickets at an average of 28.95, leaves Northants after four seasons.

Yorkshire’s T20 Champions League campaign starts next Tuesday against Sri Lanka champions Uva Next in Johannesburg. They will aim to make the group stages.
