Worcestershire CCC's Academy side will take on Worcestershire Under-17s for the second time in a week at Bromsgrove Cricket Club in a 50 overs contest today (Sunday) – 11am start.

The two teams did battle at the same venue last Sunday with the Academy triumphing by 89 runs – their first victory of the season.

Skipper Nick Hammond scored a half century for the Academy while Dan Lloyd and Xavi Clarke picked up three wickets apiece.

Hammond is unavailable today and Zen Malik, who recently scored his maide first class hundred for Worcestershire Seconds, will lead the side.

Billy Cox top-scored for the Under-17s last weekend with a half century and is again part of the side for the return fixture.
