Fraine relishing Yorkshire return

Will Fraine says it is good to be heading home after clocking up the motorway miles in recent seasons.

Former MCC Universities captain Fraine, 22, signed for Yorkshire last week after spending 2018 with Nottinghamshire.

"My car has certainly got some mileage on it," the Huddersfield-raised batsman said.

"Since I've been 16 I've spent more time away from home than I have been at home. It will be so exciting to have a base and work on my cricket this winter and be around familiar faces that I've known growing up."

Fraine was at Yorkshire's academy alongside players like Matthew Waite, Jared Warner and Matthew Fisher before moving to boarding school in Worcestershire.

"I've played age-group stuff with Waitey, Warner and Fisher, I know all of those guys and Harry Brook - it will be nice to integrate back into that group and fit back in to where I once was as a youngster," he said.

"Yorkshire seem to be in a really exciting spot. They've made a few new signings and on top of that the youngsters are really coming out. But there's also a lot of experience like Adam Lyth and Gary Ballance which clearly we can pick their brains and learn a lot from.

"For me it's all about working really hard this winter. I got a taste of first-team cricket this year; the standard and skill required to play at that level, so I'm just looking to settle well and contribute to winning games for Yorkshire."

Meanwhile, England are 2.87 to win the 2019 World Cup on home soil and are available at 6.00 to triumph in the 2020 ICC World Twenty20.
