Stone back in Steelbacks picture

Olly Stone returns to Northants Steelbacks’ NatWest T20 Blast squad for their meeting with Yorkshire Vikings.

Stone has recovered from injury and is in the 13-man party, but Maurice Chambers and James Middlebrook miss out.

The Steelbacks return to action in this format for the first time since May 29 where they were beaten by Worcestershire, despite an impressive 95 by David Willey.

Yorkshire are contemplating resting bowler Jack Brooks after his gruelling start to the season.

Fellow seamer Ryan Sidebottom is still injured while Liam Plunkett, Joe Root and Gary Ballance are on England duty.

One man who will definitely play is Australia international Aaron Finch, who plundered 88 in a winning cause against Lancashire Lightning last week.

* Of those to deliver at least 250 balls in English domestic Twenty20s, only Adam Hollioake (9.6) has a better bowling strike rate than Muhammad Azhar Ullah (11).
