Liam Plunkett and David Willey are primed to have a big impact on Yorkshire’s red ball season, believes the club’s assistant coach Rich Pyrah.

The England limited overs pair played just four times between them in last year’s Specsavers County Championship – two apiece – through either international commitments or injury.

But things are looking up in that regard.

This summer, assuming they are selected for England’s one-day and T20 squads, they could be available for as many as 12 matches.

England play all their limited overs internationals against Scotland, Australia and India between June 10 and July 17, in which time the White Rose have Division One fixtures against Hampshire (June 20-23) and Surrey (June 25-28).

Both men will link up with the squad on the pre-season tour of South Africa next month.

Yorkshire travel to Potchefstroom between March 7-20.

Plunkett will travel for the whole tour as he steps up his recovery from a hamstring injury, while Willey will arrive on March 14 having completed ODI duties with England in New Zealand.
