Barnsley off spinner Azeem Rafiq will captain Yorkshire in tonight’s T20 match with Leicestershire at Headingley.

Captain Andrew Gale is out of this game and Friday’s T20 trip to Durham after suffering a small crack to a bone in his left hand.

He sustained it whilst fielding during Friday’s tied T20 meeting with Lancashire although he managed to carry on.

Gale is confident he will be fit to play when they resume their County Championship fixtures against Derbyshire at Chesterfield’s Queens Park a week tomorrow, July 17.
