“I’ve always wanted to experience county cricket ” – Dominic Drakes sign Yorkshire for 2022 Vitality Blast

Dominic Drakes has joined Yorkshire for their next four T20 Blast matches.

The 24-year-old Barbadian has played in the short-form white-ball format for West Indies, and in the Caribbean Premier League for his home island.

Drakes was recently at newly created Gujarat Titans, who won a first Indian Premier League title in 2022.

The West Indies left-armer replaces Shadab Khan, who is returning to Pakistan alongside Haris Rauf ahead of the pair’s stint on international duty.

“I’m really excited to get going with Yorkshire as I’ve always wanted to experience county cricket,” said Drakes, who has turned out for Barbados Tridents and St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in the Caribbean Premier League.

On Drakes, Yorkshire’s managing director of cricket, Darren Gough, added:

“He’s a very talented young player having just arrived from the IPL where he was part of the winning Gujarat Titans squad.

“As a left-arm bowler and a destructive left-handed batter he offers another great option for our squad.””
