Not only is Adam Lyth targeting success with Yorkshire after signing a new contract, he has also revealed he is hopeful of gaining further international honours.

The opening batsman yesterday signed a new deal to remain at Emerald Headingley until the end of 2020, ironically the format of the game he excelled most in last year.

Lyth, 30-years-old and therefore knows time remains on his side, played seven Test Matches for England during the summer of 2015.

To return to international cricket in that format, he must improve on his 2017 County Championship haul of 555 runs with just one century. Form like he produced in 2010 and 2014 should leave him well placed.

But there is no reason at all why he can’t force his way into England’s limited overs plans as well.

In the summer just gone, he amassed 535 runs from 12 appearances in the NatWest T20 Blast; Yorkshire’s best personal haul and the fourth best in the entire competition. His form was highlighted by a stunning record 161 and defending champions Northants at Headingley.
