Martyn Moxon has outlined Yorkshire’s strategy to improve their County Championship batting in 2018.

No stone has been left unturned, according to the county’s director of cricket, with measures taken to address both the technical and mental side of scoring runs.

That has included making it compulsory for players to utilise the club’s Sports Psychologist, Dr Mark Nesti, who also works at Liverpool John Moores University and is experienced in football.

However, speaking at the club’s AGM on Saturday, Moxon feels the development of Twenty20 cricket has adversely impacted on four-day batting, and not just at Yorkshire.

“Our Championship form was hugely disappointing, and the batting was the main problem. It’s not new – we were talking about it last year,” said Moxon.
