Ottis Gibson will take charge of Yorkshire during the forthcoming Metro Bank One-Day Cup, starting next month. 

Gibson today confirmed that he has stepped away from his position as assistant coach with the Northern Superchargers, which he held in last year’s men’s Hundred.

The Bajan will lead the Vikings’ bid for 50-over silverware, which starts on August 1 with a game against champions Kent at Scarborough.

A week tomorrow, Yorkshire travel to Nantwich to face Cheshire in a National Counties friendly.

“100 percent, I will be here for the 50-over competition,” he said. 

“I’m not involved with the Superchargers this year. 

“I enjoyed the Hundred last year. But part of what I said I wanted to do here at Yorkshire is develop young players, and I feel like I was missing out on that opportunity in the 50-over competition.

“I’ve chosen to stay here and get involved in that.

“Ali Maiden did a fantastic job with the (Yorkshire) team last year.

“We were one ball away from getting to the quarter-final eliminator match (last ball defeat to Kent). Hopefully this year we can go further and try and get into the final of that competition.

“I’m really looking forward to that. It’s going to be fun.”

Shan Masood is also set to return from international duty with Pakistan in time to captain Yorkshire through that August competition.
