Revis will be looking to build on a breakthrough summer and a memorable winter

The versatile player has returned to Headingley after a productive winter of grade cricket in Queensland.

Revis, 22, played premier-grade cricket for Gold Coast Dolphins and competed against several Australian state and international players, including Matthew Kuhnemann and Xavier Bartlett, with whom he shared a dressing room.

Revis described 2023 as a 'breakthrough' summer.

He scored 487 runs in 10 Vitality County Championship matches, including two centuries, and claimed 15 wickets. He also took his maiden five-wicket haul.

Revis was Yorkshire's leading wicket-taker in the Metro Bank One-Day Cup with 10 wickets, including a hat-trick.

All aspects of his game are progressing well. This includes his middle-order batting and his seam bowling.

It is particularly interesting to note the development of his bowling, given that he debuted for Yorkshire's first team as a teenage opening batter at the end of 2019.

Last summer, he demonstrated versatility by taking wickets conventionally with swing and seam, as well as with some short-pitched aggressive bowling. This was particularly evident in September's match against Glamorgan in Cardiff, where he took 5-50 in the first innings on an extremely flat pitch.

Expect similar performances this summer.

Next week, the summer season begins with a repeat of last year's season-opener against Leicestershire, which they won in April.

Although a lot has happened since that fixture, it remains fresh in the memories of those involved, including Revis:

“Everyone is looking forward to that first game and throwing the first punch. If we’re serious about getting promotion and winning the league, we need to be throwing the first punch in games and putting teams on the back foot.”
