Yorkshire’s relegation from Division 1 of the County Championship has met with a stinging, scathing response from executive chairman Colin Graves. Given that he’s underwriting the club’s £20 million debt he’s probably justified in being somewhat critical of his club’s 1st XI performances this season.
From what Yates knows of Yorkshire folk, there will be plenty of them wanting to have their say about the 1st XI’s performance too. And you can bet that they won’t be holding back in their criticism either.
One thing that’s always irritated Yates is the saying “We don’t deserve to be in the [whatever division is lower than the one a relegation threatened team is facing] division.”
