Alex Lees wants more hundreds before season is out

Alex Lees says he wants to score more hundreds before the end of the season and help Yorkshire reach the knockout stages of at least one limited overs tournament.

Lees, who is an ambassador for Gunn & Moore, was appointed the club's one-day captain at the start of the season and has hit 847 runs for Yorkshire in all competitions since.

Now though, he is seeking to add to the one triple-figure score he has managed this season so far.

Speaking at the GM Pro Coach Academy at Headingley, he said: "I feel I've started OK this season, a steady start.

"I'd like to finish with a real good second half of the season.

"I'd like to get a couple more hundreds and contribute to some wins for Yorkshire."

After a poor start to their T20 Blast campaign, Yorkshire went on a brilliant run of results and are now back in contention to reach the quarter-finals, and in the One Day Cup, they top the group following wins this week over Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire.

"Regarding the white ball stuff I obviously took over the captaincy this year, I'd love to qualify for at least one of the competition's quarter-finals, if not both.

"We've got our backs up against the wall now in the T20 but we've still got a chance so those are my aspirations, nothing too specific but as long as I enjoy it and play well I'll be happy."
