Profile

Of the Yorkshire trio of Gary Ballance, Adam Lyth and Joe Root, it is Lyth who possesses the most natural ability. There may have been a little hyperbole in the claim by his county captain, Andrew Gale, on behalf of his shaven-headed leftie at a time when the international stock of Ballance and Root was growing every week. But it caused many to observe Adam Lyth more carefully than ever before and 2014 was the year that his career approached fulfilment.
