Something special is brewing at Yorkshire. That is the view of regular County Championship title challenger Dom Bess.
The England off-spinner was in Somerset’s squad which reached last season’s Bob Willis Trophy final, while they also finished second in Division One in 2019, 2018 and 2016 – the latter being his debut year in first-class cricket.
New signing Bess claimed 6-53 in the second innings of Yorkshire’s Championship win against Sussex at Hove at the weekend, and the White Rose have now won two and drawn one and sit second in Group Three.
The Sussex win followed success at Kent the week before, both secured amidst challenging conditions.
