Profile

Joe Sayers is a Yorkshire top-order batsman who had to overcome a hurdle that no player in cricket's history has faced. In 2010 was diagnosed with Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome, or chronic fatigue. While his team-mates were making a tilt at the Championship, Sayers missed most of the season, forced to go to bed at 3pm every afternoon. At that stage it was not known if he could recover but happily he returned to action for the 2011 season.
