Mark Arthur has told Yorkshire’s members he expects the Hundred to be a “roaring success”.

The county’s chief executive revealed some interesting details about the ECB’s new competition, which starts next summer, at the county’s AGM on Saturday morning.

Arthur, along with chairman Robin Smith, finance director Paul Hudson and director of cricket Martyn Moxon, all updated members ahead of an exciting 2019 both on and off the field at Emerald Headingley.

New president Geoff Cope spoke with pride and humour after being elected in as the new president, replacing Richard Hutton, who was made an Honorary Life Member.

Hudson told the audience that Yorkshire’s net debt stands at £20.6m and that £1.8m was repaid in 2018 and £3.7m is due to be repaid in 2019 when Emerald Headingley hosts four World Cup matches and an Ashes Test.
