Tom Kohler-Cadmore is relishing the extra responsibility he feels comes with being capped by Yorkshire.

Kohler-Cadmore, 24, was handed his first-team cap by the White Rose in February.

“I was very surprised to receive it,” he said. “To get it in the off-season, it doesn’t happen too often.

“But I got hit in the head in the nets, and I think Martyn Moxon (director of cricket) just wanted to save a bit of money and get me a capped helmet now rather than rather an uncapped one!

“It’s a good thing to lead me into the season with, and I can’t wait to get started now.”

Kohler-Cadmore enjoyed an impressive 2018, performing well across all forms, also winning an England Lions call-up in both one-day and four-day cricket.

He moved from Worcestershire midway through 2017 back to the county for whom he played under 15s cricket, but only earned a regular run in the Specsavers County Championship team from mid-August of last year onwards.

And he was excellent, scoring 414 runs from six matches with two hundreds and two fifties.
