Gary Ballance is hoping a quieter winter personally can reap rewards on the field in 2019.

The Yorkshire batsman has, in the last few weeks, linked up with the squad at Emerald Headingley as they embark upon the latter stages of pre-season.

Ballance, 29-years-old, had been granted extra time off by the county’s hierarchy after a busy few years which have included England duty overseas and issues with anxiety, forcing him onto the sidelines during the first half of last summer. It also resulted in him relinquishing captaincy duties to Steve Patterson.

The left-hander has enjoyed his winter, spending a lot of time overseas, including with his family in Zimbabwe. He also married fiancee Alex in December.
