Yorkshire captain Andrew Gale, along with four first teamers – Andrew Hodd, Steve Patterson, Azeem Rafiq and Ryan Sidebottom – will play for the second eleven on Tuesday, when they travel to face Warwickshire at Rugby in the limited over Second Eleven Trophy competition (12pm start).
The five players will use the match as much-needed practice ahead of the LV= County Championship match on Friday, when Warwickshire head to Headingley.
“The players need some match practice and this gives us an ideal opportunity for the lads to play ahead of the Championship match this Friday,” said Director of Cricket Martyn Moxon.
“The focus is for the batters to spend time in the middle and for the bowlers to get some overs under their belt. There is a lot of cricket coming up and we need to be ready for the demands.”
