Ton-up Pyrah hails pitch-perfect Yorkshire strip

Press Releasein Cricket

Centurion Rich Pyrah believes the condition of the pitch for the ongoing three-day friendly against Lough-borough University at Headingley should be the blueprint for the rest of the summer.

Yorkshire captain Andrew Gale said recently that head groundsman Andy Fogarty would be using this match as an experiment to find the right formula for preparing a strip that will provide the best chance of gaining results in the County Championship.

And Pyrah believes he has found it.

"We should have that kind of surface for all our Championship matches," he said. "It's a good, result wicket.

"It was tough out there because it was swinging around and seaming.

"They bowled well early on in the match, and it was hard work. The pitch has a bit of pace in it, and when you hit the pitch it seams around.
