• Keshav to feature for Yorkshire

    South Africa’s left-arm spinner Keshav Maharaj is headed to the County Championship for a three-match stint after agreeing on a deal to join Yorkshire.

    The 29-year-old played for rivals Lancashire last season and will be keen to improve his first-class average which stands at 27.44.

    ‘I got the opportunity to play for Lancashire, and against Yorkshire, and developed a bit of a relationship with a few of the guys. I’m very, very happy and privileged to be coming back,’ he told the club website.

    ‘Aside from the cricket you learn a lot about yourself. You’re sort of a stranger in a different place. You have to learn to take more responsibility and find a way to get through things. It adds to your character.’

    Maharaj, who made his Test debut in November 2016, is eligible to start against Surrey at Scarborough on Sunday.
