Yorkshiremen have never been modest about their cricket, and to be fair, given the county’s success down the years, they haven’t had much to be modest about.
Go onto the website, and it proclaims – “Yorkshire County Cricket Club is one of the greatest clubs in the world”.
It continues: “Established over 150 years ago, the history, tradition and passion of Yorkshire cricket are renowned. No other county in the history of the game has won more trophies and produced more players for England.”
Headingley Cricket Ground has been home since 1890 and a venue for Test Matches since 1899.
There have been some amazing eras.
Winning the title four times in the 1900s, the side, led by Lord Hawke, included great players such as George Hirst, David Denton – who scored 2,000 runs in a season four times – and Wilfred Rhodes, who took a career 3,598 wickets for the County.
The 1920s featured openers Herbert Sutcliffe and Percy Holmes, who still hold the record for the highest opening stand of 555 against Essex. George Macaulay took 100 Championship wickets in a season 10 times.
The 1930s featured Hedley Verity, a great left-arm spinner, Bill Bowes, an international opening bowler, and Len Hutton, one of the greatest batsmen ever to play cricket.
Yorkshire won the Championship six times in the 1960s – twice under the leadership of Vic Wilson and four under Brian Close. That team included England fast bowler Fred Trueman, who took 307 Test wickets, all-rounder Ray Illingworth, who captained England in 31 Tests, and iconic opening batsmen turned commentator Geoffrey Boycott.
