The Yorkshire Post – THERE is no doubt as to what was the best individual performance of Yorkshire’s 2017 season.
- It came on the night of August 17 when Adam Lyth made the highest score in English T20 history – 161 against Northants at Headingley.
- Lyth’s innings, which comprised just 73 balls and included 20 fours and seven sixes, was also the third-biggest T20 innings in the world, helping Yorkshire to an English T20 record total of 260-4 and a thumping 124-run win.
- “For me, T20 is fantastic, but the pinnacle is still red-ball and playing for your country,” said Lyth, who is looking forward to the start of the season after recovering from a minor calf injury.
