Profile

Adam Lyth is an opening batsman in the modern mould - happy to attack the new ball with an array of shots. His real breakthrough season came in 2010 as he jumped out of the starting blocks, scoring so heavily there were thoughts he could reach 1000 Championship runs before the end of May. He narrowly missed out but soon made his first Roses hundred, off 122 balls, as his standing continued to rise.
