Dawid Malan believes silverware is not too far away from returning to Headingley.

Yorkshire start the new season against Gloucestershire at Bristol in the LV= Insurance County Championship on Thursday (11am).

The county are targeting their first trophy since 2015 when they won the second of back-to-back Championship titles.

Ironically, in 2016, Malan was part of the Middlesex side which prevented Yorkshire from securing a third straight Championship crown on the final day of the season at Lord’s.

Now, having turned from gamekeeper to poacher, he is confident of tasting success in his third season in the North.

“In the two years I’ve been here, we’ve played some fantastic cricket,” said the England batter.

“We’ve put performances on the board, but we just haven’t been able to get over the line in terms of a trophy.

“It’s just been one more win here and there.
