Australia quick Mitchell Starc has been recalling his time with Yorkshire in 2012, admitting he would be open to a county cricket return in the future.

The left-armer played all formats for the county eight years ago, taking 36 wickets in 16 appearances.

As a 22-year-old, he turned heads and helped Jason Gillespie’s side reach their first ever T20 Finals Day at Cardiff, although international commitments prevented his involvement. Later in the year, he played against Yorkshire in the Champions League event in South Africa, representing Big Bash side Sydney Sixers.

Unfortunately, he only made two Championship appearances during his short spell at Emerald Headingley, including a rain-ravaged draw against Glamorgan at Colwyn Bay when only 34 overs were possible during the game.

Starc played alongside the likes of Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow, and he was due to link up with the latter again later this summer having signed up to play for the Welsh Fire in the inaugural Hundred, a competition now delayed by a year.

“I loved my time there,” he said of his Yorkshire days.
