Shaaiq Choudhry will captain Worcestershire Seconds in two T20 matches against Cardiff MCCU at Bromsgrove Cricket Club on Friday.

The county spinner has just returned to action after a month side-lined with a side strain and played in the second of matches against Somerset Seconds at Taunton Vale on Wednesday.
