Academy Return To Tri-Series Action At Uppingham School

Academy Return To Tri-Series Action At Uppingham School

Worcestershire Academy return to Tri-Series action tomorrow (Sunday) when they take on Leicestershire Academy in a 50 over encounter at Uppingham School (11am start).

The Academy were beaten in the two T20 matches with Leicestershire and Northamptonshire at Barnt Green last weekend.

The three counties are also playing against each other in three-day matches.

Triallist Zahid Kafiat, who plays for Old Hill in the Birmingham Premier League, will be looking to continue the form he showed in the T20 against Leicestershire.

He top-scored for the Academy by making 59 off 36 balls.

Riecko Parker-Cole, who skippered the side last weekend, had a taste of senior action in the week when he fielded as a substitute in the Specsavers County Championship match at Trent Bridge.

Academy Coach Elliot Wilson has selected a 12 strong squad.
