Yorkshire have made two changes from the squad that drew with Somerset at Taunton last week for their game against Notts at Scarborough starting this morning.

Opener Joe Sayers is replaced by Alex Lees. Lees (pictured), 19, has been in excellent form in the second eleven and Academy this season.

Ben Coad, who will join up with the second team at Leicestershire after his 12th man duties at Taunton, is replaced by Iain Wardlaw.

“It was a difficult decision to replace Joe Sayers with Alex Lees,” said Yorkshire first team coach Jason Gillespie.

“Alex’s performances in the second team have demanded his selection and he deserves his chance.

“Joe hasn’t grasped his opportunity since returning to the first team and with strong competition for places across all areas of the team, Alex’s consistent efforts with the bat warrant his selection.”

Entry costs £15, while OAPs can get into the ground for £10, with play set to get under way at 11am.

Yorkshire 12-man squad to face Nottinghamshire, beginning this morning:

Moin Ashraf, Gary Ballance, Andrew Gale ©, Andrew Hodd (wk), Phil Jaques, Alex Lees, Adam Lyth, Steve Patterson, Richie Pyrah, Adil Rashid, Ryan Sidebottom, Iain Wardlaw.
