The Yorkshire County Cricket Club is delighted to announce the return of Keshav Maharaj, who will be the Club’s overseas player for the opening two County Championship fixtures of 2020.

The left-arm spinner, who made a huge impact for the White Rose this summer claiming 38 wickets in just five First-Class appearances, is set to play in the season opener against Gloucestershire at Emerald Headingley starting April 12, followed by Essex at Chelmsford on April 19.

Maharaj, who plays franchise cricket for the Dolphins in South Africa, claimed four five-wicket hauls for the White Rose this summer, with a best of 7 for 52 against Surrey at Scarborough. With the bat, the destructive right-hander made some handy lower-order contributions compiling 239 runs at an average of 26.55, with two half-centuries.
