Mcclenaghan Returns To County One-Day Cup Squad For Meeting With The Vikings

Mitchell McClenaghan returns to the Worcestershire squad for the Royal London One-Day clash with Yorkshire Vikings at Headingley tomorrow (Thursday).

Director of Cricket Steve Rhodes is continuing his policy of rotating his seamers in the 50 over competition.

McClenaghan was rested for last Thursday's rain-affected clash with Derbyshire Falcons at New Road although he did play in the NatWest T20 Blast quarter-final against Surrey at the Kia Oval.

Jack Shantry did not play in the away win over Northamptonshire Steelbacks – the first game he has not featured in all season in all competitions.

McClenaghan comes back into a 12 man squad in place of fellow paceman Charlie Morris who also did not participate in the opening One-Day Cup encounter with Essex Eagles.

Spinner Brett D'Oliveira is also included in the squad.

Worcestershire have collected three points from their opening three matches in the competition.

They will next be in action at New Road wen they host Lancashire Lightning on Saturday (10.30am start).

Worcestershire (from): Mitchell, Oliver, Fell, Kervezee, Kohler-Cadmore, Whiteley, Cox, Choudhry, Leach, Shantry, McClenaghan, D'Oliveira.
