Playing Seconds

Two players released by Yorkshire last year are still trying to carve out professional careers and have been gracing the Second XI circuit this season.

Left-arm quick bowler James Wainman can be found at Worcestershire meanwhile spinner Azeem Rafiq, rather cruelly let go following trying personal times, can be found at Warwickshire.

Competition for places at Yorkshire this season is incredibly hot so it’s understandable that some players had to be let go. Wainman and Rafiq are extremely good cricketers however and it wouldn’t be a surprise if we were to see them grace the field for a county side’s first XI in the future.

  1. That’s interesting- you learn something every day…

    Rafiq for me was the one that should have done better and could have made more of his time at Yorkshire. At Warwickshire, he might be required to keep them up in Division 1.


      1. Yes definitely that really shook them and I’m pretty sure they were the last people that thought he would make a swift u turn. They have great seaming options but seem intent on using part time spin and not a proper spinner.
