Yorkshire's Adam Lyth says he was delighted to have been awarded with his county cap on his home ground at the Scarborough Cricket Festival.

Lyth, 22, was the first player in the country to reach 1,000 runs in first-class cricket in 2010

He told BBC Radio York: "It's a massive achievement for myself with the history of the club.

"I've now joined the names of Boycott, Vaughan, those sorts of names. I'm just over the moon to be one of them"

Before this week's game against Hampshire, the left-handed batsman had amassed 1,275 runs in the County Championship this season at an average of 55.43 with three centuries and a highest score of 142.

In total he had represented Yorkshire in the County Championship 33 times, scoring 2,191 runs after making his debut against Hampshire on 17 September 2006.
