DAVIDSON AIMS FOR MORE SUCCESS AFTER SHINING FOR SCOTLAND IN UNDER-19S WORLD CUP

Worcestershire Academy player Oliver Davidson finished as Scotlandโ€™s highest run-scorer and leading wicket-taker in the ICC Under-19 World Cup group stages.

Davidson scored 93 runs from his three knocks at an average of 30.33 in the openerโ€™s role.

His highest score was 43 in the second game of the tournament against hosts West Indies.

Davidson was equally effective with his slow left-arm bowling and picked up five wickets at an average of 22.80.

He had figures of 2-50, 1-19 and 2-45 against Sri Lanka, West Indies and Australia, respectively.

Davidson will be aiming for further success when Scotland face Zimbabwe Under-19s in the quarter-finals of the Plate competition in Port Of Spain on Wednesday.

It will provide more valuable international experience for Davidson before he returns to New Road for the 2022 campaign.

Worcestershire batsman, Jack Haynes, was part of the England side, which won the Plate competition at the 2020 Under-19s World Cup.

Davidson was a member of the Worcestershire Pathway when aged 11-12 and, after a spell with Warwickshire, re-joined Worcestershire and is a member of the 2021-2022 Academy intake.
