Adam Lyth has received his county cap today on his home ground on North Marine Road, Scarborough in a presentation ahead of play on Day 2 of the LV= County Championship match between Yorkshire and Hampshire.
Adam has literally capped a remarkable 2010 season which has seen him cement a place in the 1st Team in all forms of cricket. He was the first man in the country to pass the magical 1,000 first-class runs mark this summer and before today’s play had ammassed 1275 runs at an average of 55.43 with 3 hundreds and a highest score of 142.
In one-day cricket he has been a consistent performer too. In the Clydesdale Bank 40 over competition he has scored 333 runs at 37.00 with a best knock of 91 and in the Friends Provident t20 he scored 227 runs with a highest score of 59, which was a sparkling innings which saw him pass the half century mark in just 18 balls.
A splendid fielder and popular in the dressing room and around the ground the Whitby-born left-hander will be a happy man when he celebrates his 23rd birthday on 25 September – he can look back at a job very well done this summer.
Adam joins Richard Pyrah in the capped ranks after Richard received his county cap ahead of Sunday’s CB40 match against Middlesex Panthers.
Congratulations to Adam from everyone involved with Yorkshire cricket.
