I really enjoyed my short stint there after the World Cup and feel I have a bit of unfinished business with the weather winning in a couple of the games I was scheduled to play in 2019," Pooran said. <p></p> <p></p>"I look forward to catching up with my team-mates in 2020." <p></p> <p></p>Pooran has been amongst runs of late. He has accumulated 2278 runs in 119 T20 matches, averaging 24.49, including 12 fifties. <p></p> <p></p>Yorkshire County Cricket Club's First XI Coach (Andrew Gale) rates Pooran highly as a player and believes he can be a match winner on his day. <p></p> <p></p>"We all got a glimpse of what a special player he is (last season); he is box office. In T20 cricket, you always look down the team sheet to see who can win you a game, and Pooran is a guy that can win you a game on his own."
