March 17 2014

Yorkshire second eleven have failed to progress to the semi finals of the 2015 Second Eleven Twenty20 competition. The second string won three and lost six of their twelve fixtures, with three others abandoned without a ball being bowled. At the time of writing, the county lie in sixth place in the northern table, three points below fifth, with the prospect of one or two counties still capable of relegating the team further down the table. Will Rhodes was arguably the pick of the Yorkshire contingent in their ill-fated campaign.
