VIDEO: Lees plays down England tour chances, wants Yorkshire success

Alex Lees, speaking on Yorkshire’s pre-season tour of Abu Dhabi played down his chances of making the England touring party to the Caribbean.

The 21-year-old left-handed opener instead suggested fellow opening bat Adam Lyth deserved a chance and said all he is focussing on is more Yorkshire success.

We loved his one word answer to the question ‘Will Yorkshire retain their Championship crown in 2015?’ “Hopefully,” he said :)


A long international career awaits this talented young player - whether it starts this winter - watch this space!

Apologies for the poor audio - it was near hurricane conditions!
