WORCESTERSHIRE paceman Charlie Morris is earmarked to play in the Second XI Championship match at Northamptonshire tomorrow in his comeback from an ankle problem.

Coach Kevin Sharp said: “Charlie might be limited to how many overs he can bowl but that will depend on how his ankle is feeling really.”

Wicketkeeper Alex Milton is available for the rest of the summer after a successful first half of 2017 with Cardiff MCCU and Cardiff CC.

Milton averaged 98 for Cardiff with 482 runs in seven innings including three hundreds and two fifties.

He also scored centuries for the students against two of the stronger university sides in Loughborough and Leeds-Bradford.

Sharp said of Milton: “He is a fine cricketer. It doesn’t surprise me he has done as well as he has. I’m sure he will come back to us and continue performing.

“He is back full-time with us this week. He will be pretty much around for the rest of the season.”

The seconds head into a concentrated period of cricket during the next few weeks after playing two T20 matches yesterday with Northamptonshire.

Sharp said: “We’ve got three weeks of full-on cricket.

"We’ve got Northants, Durham and Leicestershire with T20s followed by the three-day matches. They are going to be busy.

“It is enormously challenging to play two T20s in a day and then start a three-day fixture the next morning.

“You can’t do much about it. You can’t just go somewhere to play a T20.

"From a financial point of view you’ve got to tighten things (the schedule) up.”

Sharp changed the batting order around for the opening two T20 fixtures against the MCC Young Cricketers.

He added: “In the batting order we are going to share it around a bit and give opportunities for lads to bat higher up the order and get used to batting in different places in T20 cricket.

“Sometimes that is what you have to do.

"They will get used to batting in different positions because when they play first-team cricket they could be batting anywhere.”
