Dominic Drakes is only with Yorkshire for a short time, but the early indications are that it will be a good time for the Bajan all-rounder and the county.

Five wickets in two Vitality Blast appearances with his left-arm seamers, the 24-year-old has contributed to home victories over Durham and Nottinghamshire.

In returning hauls of 2-43 and 3-31, the five-time West Indies international has ensured Yorkshire’s bid for quarter-final qualification from the North Group is back on track after defeats to Leicestershire and Derbyshire last week.

The son of former international all-rounder Vasbert, a close friend of Ottis Gibson’s, he will play in the Roses match against Lancashire at Headingley tomorrow (6.30pm) and then Birmingham Bears at Edgbaston on Friday.

Drakes is then available to play in Sunday’s County Championship game at Hampshire before returning home.

Yorkshire head into the clash with Lancashire, their seventh of 14 group games, with three wins, a tie and two defeats under their belts – inside the top four ahead of tonight’s round of games involving some rivals.
