Jonny Bairstow – World Cup winner. “It feels pretty good to be honest,” he said upon his return to Emerald Headingley.

Bairstow was back home as a spectator hoping to watch Yorkshire get their Vitality Blast campaign off to a winning start against Nottinghamshire, only for rain to rule the roost.

The Yorkshire star is basking in the glory of England’s stunning final victory over New Zealand at Lord’s on Sunday.

“It’s not sunk in and won’t do for a little while,” he admitted. “We’re in camp tomorrow preparing for the Ireland Test Match and then onto the Ashes, so it won’t do for a while.

“It’s been a long journey along the way.

“There’s been a few ups and plenty of downs, but it’s a fantastic moment which has taken a lot of hard work through a special bunch of people.

“It was a special moment in my life and a lot of other people’s lives.

“It’s something that when you sit in front of a fire and you’re 45 or however many years old with your mates or missus or with your kids you can enjoy those few moments.”
