Champion Ryan is 700 up!
Congratulations to Ryan Sidebottom on reaching 700 first class wickets in style – and becoming a back-to-back County Champion!
Ryan headed in to today’s match against Middlesex at Lord’s requiring just one wicket to reach the milestone.
And he’s smashed his target in emphatic style, taking four wicket in his first four overs – including a thrilling hat-trick.
Ryan made his one-day and Championship debuts for Yorkshire in 1997, and took his first three wickets against Leicestershire in July.
His contribution to today’s dominant display against Middlesex, during which he took five wickets, helped Yorkshire to a second consecutive County Championship.
Ryan has played in nine of Yorkshire’s 14 Championship games this summer, taking 39 wickets – including five or more in an innings on three occasions.
Well done, Yorkshire… and well done, Ryan!
