Jason Gillespie has signed for Yorkshire for a second year.

Gillespie, the Australian fast bowler, will return to Headingley as the second overseas player, alongside the batsman Younis Khan, who will be the first Pakistan player to represent the county.

Last season Gillespie took just 36 wickets, but built a promising new-ball partnership with Deon Kruis as Yorkshire managed to stave off relegation.
