Injury Update

— 27 June 2013

Yorkshire Coach Jason Gillespie gives us an overview of the latest injury news.

Injury update with Jason Gillespie:

“Jack Brooks has been given the all-clear on his thumb injury and is available to play in all forms of the game, this gives us a massive boost.

 “Azeem Rafiq has played a number of T20 games in the last fortnight with the seconds and has come through with no problems. He was a massive part of our T20 campaign last year, when he led the side in a number of games. To have him back is brilliant. He is a natural competitor and he will bring a lot to the team.

 “We still have a number injury worries. Phil Jaques is still recovering from a side strain and will miss, at least the opening two matches. Steve Patterson has broken his toe and will likely return for the Championship match against Derbyshire next month and Moin Ashraf has commenced a fitness regime with our support staff.

 “It is all about managing workload and I feel we are in a good place at present with the personnel we have available for T20.”
