Worcestershire CCC will be hoping for better luck with the weather tomorrow when they are scheduled to start a two-day red ball practice match with Gloucestershire at Bristol.

Overnight rain led to an early call-off of today’s scheduled 50 over friendly at the same venue and left the ground saturated in parts.

Head Coach Kevin Sharp had intended to give all members of the 15 man squad chosen for the games the opportunity to play in at least one of the two matches.

Ross Whiteley is hoping to return to County action tomorrow fresh from his winter exploits in the Bangladesh Premier League, the inaugural T10 tournament in Sharjah and the Pakistan Super League.

Sharp has already indicated that Whiteley will be forming part of the County’s bowling plans this summer.

The team originally selected for today’s game was:

Mitchell

Rhodes

Fell

Whiteley

Cox

Barnard ( bat only)

Leach (bat only)

Shantry

Pennington

Morris

Brown
