Profile

A technically accomplished batsman, it's only fair to say that Alex Lees hasn't lived up to his initial promise.Touted as one for the future by the likes of Geoffrey Boycott and Michael Vaughan, Lees - who came up through the Yorkshire Academy and then had several stints at various age groups, was named as the captain of his county team at the young age of 22.

Under Lees's captaincy, Yorkshire reached the finals day of the domestic Twenty20 competition, but his reign as Yorkshire's captain lasted for only one year. Jason Gillespie, the incumbent coach quit his job after securing back-to-back county championships and the new coach, Andrew Gale, insisted on having one captain across all formats of the game. Thus, Lees lost his captaincy to Garry Ballance and it also seemed to have had an effect on his batting.

However, Lees enjoyed a renaissance of sorts in 2017 as he made more than 1,000 runs and nearly made hundreds in both innings against Durham. While Lees has had a turnaround in his career, it wasn't the case in 2010 - when he first played for Yorkshire. Mentored under Paul Farbrace, Yorkshire' second XI coach, Lees had captained various second XI teams of Yorkshire - at different age groups - and also became the county's youngest ever double centurion - when he made 275 not out against Derbyshire.

He was chosen for the Performance squad trip to Australia at the end of the year and was also a part of the Lions team for the tour of Sri Lanka.
