Andrew Gale reckons Jordan Thompson can add some Pyrah-technics to Yorkshire’s first team.

The 21-year-old all-rounder has made an encouraging step up from the second-team in the last three weeks, playing a quartet of Vitality Blast matches.

Thompson has taken six wickets with his seamers, claimed four catches and scored 13 runs in two innings down the order, impressing his coach.

“Jordan’s done really well,” said Gale.

“He reminds me of how Rich Pyrah used to be.

“He performs that role well through the middle with really good skills and is an excellent fielder. We haven’t seen the best of his batting yet, but he can clear the ropes at the death.

“I’m really pleased with the way he’s gone. He’s come in and taken his opportunity. That’s what we want from young lads.”
