Munro To Warm-Up For T20 Blast Double Header With Seconds Appearance

Colin Munro will play for Worcestershire Seconds in tomorrow's (Tuesday's) 50 over friendly clash with North Staffs South Cheshire League X1 at Stone CC (11.30am start).

The New Zealand all-rounder will use the game to hone his skills for the NatWest T20 Blast clashes with Leicestershire at Grace Road on Friday and Durham Jets at New Road on the following day.

Munro has played in all four of the county's opening T20 games and is available for their entire 14 matches in the shortened format of the game.

Chris Russell and Brett D'Oliveira, who also played in the T20 win over Northamptonshire Steelbacks last Friday, are also part of the side.

All-rounder Gareth Andrew, who is recovering from a back problem, will play purely as a batsman.

Spinner Shaaiq Choudhry, who has recovered from a broken thumb suffered in club cricket, will skipper the side.

Worcestershire 2nds: Kohler-Cadmore, Munro, D'Oliveira, Choudhry, Hepburn, Andrew, Russell, Harrison, Whiles, Rhodes, Twohig.

The Seconds will play another friendly 50 over game against Bristol University at Bristol CC on Thursday (11.30am).
