Plunkett heading Down Under

Yorkshire new boy Liam Plunkett is heading to Adelaide for two months of warm weather training.

Plunkett, who joined Yorkshire in the close season from Durham and has only played three LV= County Championship matches in the last two seasons due to injury, will head to Adelaide next week.

Yorkshire director of cricket Martyn Moxon said: "The thinking behind it is to give Liam every opportunity to play and train in excellent conditions. He missed a lot of last season through injury, so he is keen to make up for lost time."

Plunkett, 27, is due to return on March 5.
