England fast bowler Liam Plunkett is really disappointed with Yorkshire's move to drop him from the ongoing Royal London One-Day Cup 2018 only because of his single bad outing in the tournament. 

The 33-year-old is also looking to speak to other counties as he is in the last year of his contract with Yorkshire County Cricket Club in a bid to get new opportunities that they have not yet given him.

Plunkett was dropped from Yorkshire's 16-run win over Lancashire earlier in June and despite his tension with the Club his form with the ball is brilliant, as the pacer has taken 3 wickets and played a key role in England’s 3-wicket win over Australia in the first One Day International at The Oval.

As per reports in Cricbuzz, Liam said, “Yes, I was disappointed. I'd played the previous games and felt I went all right. We won the previous game, so I felt in a good place - but I had one bad performance. They said I wasn't ready, that I looked undercooked. I just felt I was getting back into it. That was the decision they took. I feel I was coming into a good place and I feel I can help win games for Yorkshire so obviously, I was disappointed and I let them know on that.”

The fast-bowler further went on to explain, “It's my last year and I went in for a chat with Martyn Moxon, and obviously as you get a little bit older you maybe think about your base salary coming down and you're playing for incentives and stuff but I didn't really get offered anything.”

Plunkett signed off by saying, “They just said we'll look into it in the next month or so but it gives me a right to speak to other counties and it gives me that option and I'm looking to do that.”
