Stanlake's Yorkshire move off after CA intervention

16th May 2018, 13:32 by Neil Foster

Yorkshire will not have fast bowler Billy Stanlake in their ranks this summer after Cricket Australia blocked his move.

The 23-year-old was signed up by the Headingley club for a minimum of 12 T20 Blast games this summer, having played six T20s and two one-day internationals for the Aussies.

The Queenslander has also featured in the Indian Premier League and is currently sidelined with a fractured finger picked up on the sub-continent, but it seems as though Baggy Greens' officials see him playing the longer version of the game in the future.

"They've pulled him out of our deal, which is obviously very disappointing for us," Yorkshire director of cricket Martyn Moxon told the club's website.

"Now the new Australia coach is in place, they want him to play some different cricket to T20 during the period he was due to be with us."

Stanlake has only featured in two first-class games to date and has not made an appearance in the four-day formant since 2015, but it appears as though he may be set to play in the Sheffield Shield next season Down Under.

"Cricket Australia got in touch on Friday and have decided on a different strategy for Billy Stanlake. We're not the only county, it would appear, who has been affected by this," added Moxon

"We'll assess the situation as to whether we go for a replacement or not. We may choose to stick with our own players."
