Seconds Launch T20 Campaign After Encouraging Start To Season

Seconds Launch T20 Campaign After Encouraging Start To Season

Worcestershire Seconds will launch their Second Eleven T20 and Second Eleven Championship campaign with away games against Northamptonshire.

The Seconds have been in impressive form during the opening phase of the campaign, defeating Middlesex in a four-day game at New Road and being denied probable victory by the rain against Warwickshire at Barnt Green.

They also registered four T20 victories against Somerset (twice) and Cardiff MCCU (twice).

Now they will take on Northants in a T20 match at Milton Keynes tomorrow followed by a Championship match at the same venue from Tuesday to Thursday.

Shaaiq Choudhry will again captain the T20 side which also includes Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Ross Whiteley, Brett D'Oliveira and England Under-19 duo Joe Clarke and Ed Barnard.

Academy all-rounder Josh Tongue is also included in the team by second eleven coach Kevin Sharp who is also the county's batting coach.

Worcestershire defeated Northants in a three-day match at Kidderminster at the tail-end of last season.
