Wiese wings way in for debut against Worcestershire as Yorkshire try to hit back

David Wiese has arrived at Headingley ahead of his Yorkshire debut in this evening’s Vitality Blast clash with Worcestershire Rapids at New Road. Wiese has made his debut against Worcestershire as Yorkshire try to hit back against Birmingham Bears in the North Group of the Indian Premier League. Matthew Fisher has also been added to the T20 squad for the first time this season, while Jonny Bairstow is expected to miss out due to England's Test match against Ireland next week. Despite a torrid start in the reply, Birmingham posted an imposing total of 200-6, with Dawid Malan top scoring with 43 and some late counter-attacking from Dom Bess and Jafer Chohan at least giving the visitors some respectability, as they ended up 166 all out. This is the second North Group outing for Yorkshire, who lost by 34 runs to hosts Birmingham Bears at Edgbaston in Saturday's Blast Off event.

Wiese wings way in for debut against Worcestershire as Yorkshire try to hit back

Published : 2 weeks ago by Nathan Atkinson in Sports

Wiese has come to Yorkshire on the back of an Indian Premier League campaign with the Kolkata Knight Riders, who failed to get beyond the group stage.

Unfortunately for him, he only played three games. But for the Vikings, that will mean he is fresh and ready and raring to go against the Rapids.

As well as Wiese, Matthew Fisher has been added to the T20 squad for the first time this season.

But the Vikings will be missing England star Jonny Bairstow, who is unavailable, perhaps with England’s Test match against Ireland next week in mind.

Today’s clash will be the second North Group outing for Yorkshire, who lost by 34 runs to hosts Birmingham Bears at Edgbaston in Saturday’s Blast Off event.

Despite Matt Revis’ 2-25 from four overs, Birmingham posted an imposing total of 200-6, having earlier been floundering on 51-4.

Yorkshire made a torrid start in the reply, and were reduced to 34-5.

Dawid Malan top scored with 43, and some late counter-attacking from Dom Bess (42 not out) and Jafer Chohan (37) at least gave the visitors some respectability, as they ended up 166 all out.
