Willey targets four-day role

England limited-overs star David Willey has set his sights on making an impact in the longer forms of the game next summer.

The 27-year-olf former Northamptonshire left-armer is aiming to take advantage of a schedule which could see him feature a number of times for Yorkshire in the County Championship.

Willey moved to Headingley at the end of the 2015 season, but has since played only a limited role in four-day cricket.

He hopes to rectify that situation next summer, while accepting that his limited-overs commitments with England make it difficult for him to make the mark he would like to with the Tykes.

He told the county's official website: "A big reason for me coming to Yorkshire was to play Division One cricket and develop my four-day cricket.

"Unfortunately the nature of playing limited-overs cricket for England means you're not around for large chunks of time. I think I've only played five or six four-day games in total for Yorkshire.

"But, if you look at when the ODIs start next summer, I think there's five or six games that I'm likely to be available for."

Meanwhile, England are 5/2 to win the 2019 World Cup on home soil, while they can be backed at 5/1 to triumph at the 2020 World Twenty20.
