Seconds Switch Back To One-Day Cricket For Bangladesh Clash

Worcestershire Seconds switch back to one-day cricket tomorrow when they take on Bangladesh Academy in a 50 over match at Wolverhampton Cricket Club (10.30am start).

Coach Kevin Sharp’s side have just played three successive four-day matches against Hampshire, Warwickshire and Surrey.

They will end the campaign next week with a three day-encounter versus Leicestershire at Desborough CC.

But the accent will be on limited overs cricket tomorrow.

Included in the Worcestershire side is keeper-batsman Alex Milton who recently signed his first professional contract for the County.

Sharp said: “He is a fine young player. Alex has been in the system, from Malvern College, in the Academy, now at Cardiff University. He spent a little bit of time with MCC Young Cricketers, he had a game or two with Glamorgan Seconds.

“But he is back with us now and he is flourishing. He is a fine young wicket-keeper batsman, a very mature lad with a good technique, a real gritty, hard competitor who is hard to get out.

“Those are only good things. He has broken all sorts of records for Cardiff. You get noticed when you make runs. ”

Paceman Jack Shantry, who was part of last week’s impressive Specsavers County Championship triumph over Nottinghamshire, is also included.

Fellow paceman Charlie Morris will again skipper the side.
