The Yorkshire County Cricket Club can confirm that the men’s team will return from their pre-season tour to Mumbai.

The squad, who were scheduled to return from India on Tuesday 24th March, will now return to the UK tomorrow (Saturday 14th March).

Having monitored the situation regarding the Covid-19 virus, the Club has taken the decision to bring all players and staff back immediately. With England’s tour to Sri Lanka postponed earlier today, and the spread of the virus expected to continue, this was deemed as the only possible course of action.

The health of the players, support staff and their families come first. The Club will continue to monitor the situation surrounding the virus as plans for alternative preparations for the season are made.
