Daryl Tuffey will play for Yorkshire
Yorkshire has roped in the New Zealand pacer Daryl Tuffey to cover for Australian Ryan Harris who would not be playing with the team in lieu of his busy IPL schedule. Tuffey was happy to receive the news and is very eager to play County cricket with Yorkshire.
Tuffey said on Friday, 19th February, 2010, “It’s a great opportunity to develop my game. I haven’t played county cricket before and it’s always something I’ve wanted to do. I’m looking forward to the challenge and I’m sure I’ll enjoy it.” The 31 year old pacer has got a decade of experience with him and has played 85 one day international matches as well as 25 test matches. He missed playing for his country for two years for playing at the unofficial ICL.
It is reported that Tuffey would be playing for Yorkshire until when Harris returns back in early May. Martyn Moxon reported to the media, “We felt it was important to have an experienced overseas bowler at the club in the period before Ryan Harris joins us. We have a young bowling attack and the knowledge and wickets that Daryl can provide us with will be vital if we are to get off to a good start in the County Championship.”
