Yorkshire are hoping to create a festival of limited overs cricket at York’s Clifton Park next year after the success of last week’s historic Championship fixture against Warwickshire.

The first county fixture in the Minster city since 1890 was hailed a triumph by White Rose Chief Executive Mark Arthur, despite rain interruptions on days one and three and Yorkshire ending up on the losing side.

With Yorkshire committed to taking two home Championship matches per year to Scarborough, they will not be taking four-day cricket to Clifton Park in 2020.

But York CC, who have regularly hosted Yorkshire Diamonds Kia Super League games for the last two seasons, will be rewarded for their magnificent staging of an enthralling contest which constantly swung this way and that and attracted a combined crowd just short of 8,000 across the four days.
