Andrew Gale admits Yorkshire’s Headband Warrior has given him a welcome headache.

Jack Brooks made a standout return to Yorkshire’s T20 fold in Thursday’s Vitality Blast win over Durham at Emerald Headingley, taking 3-21 from four overs.

It was the seamer’s first 20-over career appearance for a little over three years.

In fact, since the start of 2015, he has only played seven games with the white ball for Yorkshire – three in the Blast, including Thursday, and four in 50-over cricket.

Coach Gale says a major reason for the 34-year-old’s absence has been the jam-packed county schedule, but now things are a little easier to manage with a player who has a T20 five-for to his name.

Brooks will bid to help the Vikings continue their winning start to the Blast tomorrow afternoon when they travel to Edgbaston to take on last year’s beaten finalists Birmingham Bears (2.30pm).
