Andrew Gale is hoping Yorkshire will get to see more of Liam Plunkett this summer after hailing the quick’s rise to one of the world’s best white ball bowlers.
Plunkett is currently ranked as the world’s ninth best ODI bowler by the ICC and at 23 in the T20 rankings.
That is owed largely to his haul of 44 limited overs international wickets in 2017, 36 of which came in 50-over cricket.
In a career which has had its fair share of ups and downs, the 32-year-old from Middlesbrough is now integral to England’s firebrand style of play.
He sat out the last two ODIs in Australia with a hamstring injury. But it is hoped he will have enough time to recover, with their first appearance in the T20 tri-series involving the Aussies and New Zealand not taking place until a week on Wednesday.
