Profile

Andrew Gale, a stalwart Yorkshire left-handed batsman and highly-respected captain with a strong sense of White Rose traditions, achieved a cherished ambition when he led his beloved county to a Championship title in 2014 - their first for 13 years. Much to the consternation of supporters and team mates alike, his greatest achievement was tarnished when the ECB banned him from taking part in the official presentation at Trent Bridge because he was serving a two-match ban for dissent in the Roses match. An ongoing investigation into supposed racist abuse against Ashwell Prince, Lancashire's South African batsman, was later downgraded to improper conduct after legal submissions. When Yorkshire won the Championship again the following year, and this time Gale could get his hands on the trophy, there was a strong sense in the county of wrongs righted.
