County Star Alexei Returns Career Best Bowling Figures For Bromsgrove

Worcestershire batsman Alexei Kervezee completed a memorable week by returning career best bowling figures for his club side Bromsgrove.

Kervezee had scored a superb first innings hundred and a second innings 50 in the county's splendid win over Leicestershire in the LV = County Championship at Grace Road.

It took his Championship run tally past the 500 mark for the campaign.

The Dutch international was then part of the Rapids side which demolished Birmingham Bears by eight wickets at New Road to maintain top spot in the NatWest T20 Blast North Group.

Then Kervezee showed his prowess with the ball when playing for Bromsgrove at home to Wombourne CC in the Birmingham League First Division.

He entered the attack as the fourth bowler and finished with 7-43 from 13.3 overs.

Bromsgrove won by six wickets after their opponents collapsed from 54-0 to 114 all out.

*A reminder that the Graeme Hick Pavilion will NOT now be screening live England's World Cup clash with Costa Rica in Brazil tomorrow.

England cannot qualify for the last 16 after losing their opening two games with Italy and Uruguay.
