    "Gutted because he was good for me and good for the team and it's a tough decision that he has made. I want to thank him, he has been great for me and they took a chance at the club to bring me there. He has been nothing but positive to me and has got me back to playing for England so I wish him all the best and look forward to catching up with him when I get back to Yorkshire."

    "I was a bit raw and struggling with my action and I thought it was all technical, but it wasn't, it was just about backing myself. I when I went there he picked up on that straight away, he did different stuff with different people but knew what I wanted, and he just said bowl fast and backed me and with that came confidence that year at Yorkshire."
