Morris Returns To Squad For Northants Clash

Morris Returns To Squad For Northants Clash

Director of Cricket Steve Rhodes has named a 12 man squad for tomorrow's Royal London One-Day Cup clash with Northamptonshire Steelbacks at Milton Keynes.

Rhodes has made one change from the players selected to face Essex Eagles at New Road yesterday.

Jack Shantry is rested having played in all 25 competitive matches undertaken by the Rapids this season in the LV County Championship (12), NatWest T20 Blast (12) and Royal London One-Day Cup (1).

The left armer has taken 40 wickets in the Championship and finished as the second highest wicket-taker with 13 in the T20 Blast.

Fellow paceman Charlie Morris returns to the squad having been rested for the clash with the Eagles who defeated the Rapids by eight wickets.

Rhodes said: "There might be the odd change. In this period, it's important to share the workload around a bit.

"We need to bounce back at Milton Keynes on Tuesday, get a few points on the board and then challenge."

The Rapids defeated the Steelbacks in the T20 Blast at Northampton 10 days ago.

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