SCARBOROUGH will host its opening first class cricket fixture of 2012 tomorrow with Leicestershire the visitors to North Marine Road.
Yorkshire, under the stewardship of new head coach Jason Gillespie, have drawn all three games so far in a weather-hit start to the campaign.
Scarborough CC batsman Adam Lyth will be hoping to make his first appearance of the season after hitting 43 for Andrew Simpson’s men on Saturday, with all of Yorkshire’s batsmen struggling to make consistent runs thus far.
Yorkshire’s England star Tim Bresnan will be available for selection once again after starring with bat and ball at Canterbury against Kent, before he turns his attention to international duties and the upcoming series against the West Indies.
Bresnan collected 3-89 and contributed 33 runs with the bat before the game was eventually ended a day early due to rain.
Tykes skipper Andrew Gale is delighted to have the influential all-rounder back in the fray.
He said: “Tim’s a class performer and is good to have around, on and off the field – especially for the young lads.
“He knows his own game inside out and to have someone like that in our side is a big boost for the side.
“He’s champing at the bit. He was back in every day over the weekend as well and bowling in the nets. He is really eager to get back on the pitch for us.”
Leicestershire will be without skipper and former fans favourite at Yorkshire, Matthew Hoggard, who is out with a hand injury sustained at the start of April when throwing a rugby ball in training.
The side will be led out instead by West Indies star Ramnaresh Sarwan.
