Worcestershire’s players will return to training later this week after being given a short break to help ensure they are fully energised for the climax of the LV=Insurance County Championship season.
The squad had some time away after the three-day win over Glamorgan at New Road cemented second spot in the Division Two table.
But now the focus will be on preparing and practicing for a busy finale against leaders Durham at New Road from Tuesday September 19, and Yorkshire at Headingley (Tuesday September 26).
Head Coach, Alan Richardson, said: “We have had a bit of time off cricket-wise. The boys have still been doing all their gym work and have kept themselves ticking over in terms of that.
“It’s been a really tough season so far, as it always is, so I think we should try and enjoy these breaks.
“But we will get back together later this week and have two or three nice days of practicing to go into the last 8 days cricket out of 11 against Durham and Yorkshire.
“It’s really important that we are energised for that, and fully prepared for that as well.”
Worcestershire began the current round of games 24 points ahead of Leicestershire who are playing their game in hand against Sussex at Hove.
