It is quite ironic that Martyn Moxon sat down to discuss Yorkshire’s recruitment for 2018 yesterday, on Transfer Deadline Day in the football world.

“It’s been busy, but certainly not as hectic as that is,” he laughed.

Two overseas signings have been confirmed ahead of the forthcoming summer; New Zealand captain Kane Williamson and India’s Chesteshwar Pujara.

And a third has by no means ruled out.

That would come in the NatWest T20 Blast to play alongside Williamson, although Moxon insists nothing is certain and admitted any signing would be a bonus.

The county’s director of cricket explained: “There’s a salary cap, and we’re an expensive squad without overseas players, so we’re just going to have to look at that situation. That’s the main consideration. We don’t want to breach that.

“It may well be that we don’t go for a second overseas player for T20. If we don’t, we’ll go with the lads we’ve got.

“We’ll wait and see how much Pujara misses because that will affect the salary cap because we’re paying him on a pro rata basis. If he misses more than we expect, there may be more money available.

“We’re pretty relaxed about having a second overseas. We’re comfortable of our capabilities without one.

“We do have an idea of what we might go for if we have the resources.”
