Confidence high for quarter-final battle

Redditch Advertiser:

2:00pm Saturday 2nd August 2014

THE mood in our camp ahead of today's massive NatWest T20 Blast quarter-final at Surrey is very positive.

Promotion thought not the main focus

Redditch Advertiser:

1:13pm Wednesday 23rd July 2014

WINNING when you’re not at your best is a sign of a good side and I think that describes Worcestershire’s performance against Leicestershire.

Saeed to prove big loss at New Road

Redditch Advertiser:

12:00pm Saturday 12th July 2014

SAEED Ajmal’s stay with Worcestershire comes to an end next week but his time with us has been invaluable.

Dolly was a major influence on us all

Redditch Advertiser:

10:00am Saturday 5th July 2014

DOLLY (Damian D’Oliveira) was a massive influence on my career and those of many other people here at the club.

Confidence is high in New Road camp

Redditch Advertiser: DARYL MITCHELL: Golf success.

11:50am Saturday 28th June 2014

WE put in a fantastic effort all-round in our eight-wicket NatWest T20 Blast victory over Birmingham Bears.

Alexei played part in our best victory

Redditch Advertiser: ALEXEI KERVEZEE: Roared back to form with a match-winning innings against Gloucestershire.

10:30am Saturday 21st June 2014

I WOULD probably put our LV= County Championship Division Two victory at Leicestershire last week down as our best win of the season.

Cool Moeen makes Worcestershire duo proud

Redditch Advertiser: Andrew's haul puts Worcestershire in command

10:10am Saturday 14th June 2014

IT was a really proud moment for me to be at Lord’s on Thursday to witness Moeen Ali making his England Test debut.

We head to Surrey full of confidence

Redditch Advertiser: DARYL MITCHELL: Golf success.

12:00pm Saturday 31st May 2014

AFTER losing the toss on a flat wicket at Tunbridge Wells, it was a great effort by all of our bowlers to dismiss Kent for 258.

Saeed remedy for our batting slump

Redditch Advertiser: DARYL MITCHELL: Golf success.

10:00am Saturday 24th May 2014

WINNING our LV= County Championship Division Two match with Essex possibly papered over a few cracks in the batting but, to come out and fight like we did in that final innings and bowl them out for 130, was a really good effort. Thank goodness for Saeed Ajmal!

I'm excited by County T20 team

Redditch Advertiser: DARYL MITCHELL: Golf success.

11:00am Saturday 10th May 2014

OUR NatWest T20 Blast campaign starts on Friday night with a trip to Durham and we have quite an exciting side this year.

Players can learn from Saeed's experience

Redditch Advertiser: File photo dated 17/09/2010 of Pakistan's Saeed Ajmal. PRESS ASSOCIATION Photo. Issue date: Monday June 3, 2013. Ajmal touched down in England as the leading wicket-taker in ODI cricket this year, taking 19 wickets at 18.63 in nine matches. See PA sto

10:32am Saturday 26th April 2014

HAVING Saeed Ajmal joining us for tomorrow's LV= County Championship match against Derbyshire is a massive boost for everyone.

Young guns' displays so pleasing

Redditch Advertiser: DARYL MITCHELL: Golf success.

10:00am Saturday 19th April 2014

THE LV= County Championship Division Two win over Kent was really pleasing and it was great to back up the display against Hampshire.

Youngsters make their mark in opening draw

Redditch Advertiser: DARYL MITCHELL: Golf success.

12:00pm Saturday 12th April 2014

THE rain meant we only managed a frustrating eight overs in the first two days of our game at Hampshire.

Let’s end campaign with a flourish

Redditch Advertiser: CHRIS RUSSELL: The Worcestershire pace bowler is back in the side to face Northamptonshire this week.

10:30am Tuesday 24th September 2013

ALTHOUGH this season has been a disappointment, it was never going to be the case that winning promotion from Division Two of the LV= County Championship would be easy.

We should have made most of good start

Redditch Advertiser: BEN COX: Has shown plenty of improvement this year with the gloves and the bat.

11:00am Tuesday 17th September 2013

WE bowled well and created chances to start with in our LV= County Championship Division Two game against Hampshire, but failed to take them.

Our season has been consistently inconsistent

Redditch Advertiser: Moeen's grand hope may come up short

10:30am Tuesday 10th September 2013

OUR chances of promotion from Division Two of the LV=County Championship have now gone, which is disappointing, but we still have two games left to play, starting with Hampshire at New Road tomorrow.

County have got to believe that promotion is still possible

Redditch Advertiser: THILAN SAMARAWEERA: Completed his best innings for Worcestershire with an unbeaten 144 against Leicestershire.

9:30am Tuesday 3rd September 2013

WE managed to give ourselves an outside chance of promotion from LV= County Championship Division Two with last week’s nine-wicket win at Leicestershire.

Big wins in a fantastic seven days at New Road

Redditch Advertiser: TOM KOHLER-CADMORE: Impressed against Bangladesh ‘A’.

10:25am Thursday 22nd August 2013

THE past week has been excellent both for Worcestershire and myself on a personal level.

We can’t be afraid of the openers at Trent Bridge

Redditch Advertiser: GARETH ANDREW: Could miss today’s trip to Nottinghamshire with a bad back.

11:00am Tuesday 13th August 2013

TRENT Bridge is always a difficult place to go to as Nottinghamshire are a team with a star-studded line-up.

We never got going in our Kent washout

Redditch Advertiser: GARETH ANDREW: Injury blow.

10:00am Tuesday 6th August 2013

THE weather put paid to our hopes of taking anything from our LV= County Championship Division Two game with Kent at New Road, which has been disappointing.

Glad to see the back of this year’s t20 event

Redditch Advertiser: County will keep on fighting says Leatherdale

9:00am Tuesday 30th July 2013

TWENTY20 cricket is always great fun when you are winning but it can be depressing if it isn’t going well, so I am glad to see the back of it now.

We can’t give up our t20 last eight pursuit

Redditch Advertiser: ROUGH JUSTICE: Thilan Samaraweera fell to a terrible lbw decision against Gloucestershire.

10:30am Tuesday 23rd July 2013

WE were bitterly disappointed with our Friends Life t20 defeat against Northamptonshire at New Road on Sunday.

We can still reach the last eight of the t20

Redditch Advertiser: ALEXEI KERVEZEE: Has found some form with the bat.

10:11am Tuesday 16th July 2013

ALTHOUGH we have had mxed results in the Friends Life t20, I still believe we can qualify for the quarter-finals.

Don’t expect an Ashes clean sweep

Redditch Advertiser: TOP GUY: Nick Compton was a good influence on Worcestershire’s younger players.

10:30am Tuesday 9th July 2013

AFTER losing our first two games in the Friends Life t20 it was vital that we beat Gloucestershire at the weekend to get us back up and running.

Compton is someone our lads can learn from

Redditch Advertiser: PHIL HUGHES: Travelled on the County’s team coach for the match against Gloucestershire at Bristol.

10:30am Tuesday 2nd July 2013

WE will be taking on the touring Australian team this week — it is a great game for the club to have and financially it will be a good thing for New Road.

t20 a welcome break after YB40 away loss

Redditch Advertiser: EXCEPTIONAL: Daryl Mitchell was full of praise for Chris Russell’s (centre) bowling display in Worcestershire’s seven-wicket defeat to Northamptonshire in the YB40 on Monday night.

10:30am Wednesday 26th June 2013

WE are really looking forward to our Friends Life t20 campaign that starts with a visit to New Road from Glamorgan on Friday.

Time for sweet revenge against Glamorgan

Redditch Advertiser: NATIONALISED: Nambian-born former Netherlands international Alexei Kervezee is now officially a British citizen.

10:30am Wednesday 19th June 2013

GLAMORGAN come to New Road tomorrow for our LV= County Championship Division Two re-match and we owe them one after our defeat at the SWALEC Stadium at the start of the season.

Jack Shantry and Moeen Ali are ready for t20 battle

Redditch Advertiser: MOEEN ALI.

10:00am Wednesday 12th June 2013

WE don’t have a match this week, but we have organised a t20 against Shropshire, which will be decent preparation for when the action starts for real in a couple of weeks.

Things are looking up on all fronts at New Road

Redditch Advertiser: FINE CATCH: Moeen Ali showed a safe pair of hands against Warwickshire to dismiss Varun Chopra in their Yorkshire Bank 40 match at New Road.

10:30am Wednesday 5th June 2013

PERSONALLY, it has been nice to get a few runs lately — it is what you work towards in the nets and the practice sessions — so it’s good to reap the rewards in the middle.

Confident we can still beat Essex – and the rain

Redditch Advertiser: JACK SHANTRY: Batted well down the order against Gloucestershire until he was run out.

10:30am Wednesday 29th May 2013

IN the LV= County Championship matches, you want to be playing for the best part of the four days, so it is always frustrating to lose a day to the weather.

Time for Worcestershire to shine under the Canterbury lights

Redditch Advertiser: SAFE HANDS: Thilan Samaraweera took a great catch against Nottinghamshire.

10:30am Wednesday 15th May 2013

WE have a big Yorkshire Bank 40 game at Kent tonight and it’s on TV and under the lights, which is always exciting, so we just need to go out and perform well like we did against Sussex at Hove.

Mitchell is looking forward to being at New Road

Redditch Advertiser: MOEEN ALI: His spin bowling may be crucial for Worcestershire against Leicestershire at New Road this week.

9:30am Wednesday 8th May 2013

IT is definitely great to be back at New Road today for the start of our LV= County Championship Division Two match with Leicestershire (11am).

Big opportunity for Worcestershire's young guns

Redditch Advertiser: CHANCE: Ben Cox will play against Oxford MCCU this week.

11:30am Wednesday 1st May 2013

PLAYING the Oxford MCCU students always gives a few of the Worcestershire guys an opportunity to show what they can do in the first team.

Time we had a bit of luck after tough start

Redditch Advertiser: GARETH ANDREW: Back to his best with the ball for Worcestershire.

10:30am Wednesday 24th April 2013

IN our LV= County Championship Division Two defeat at Glamorgan, it was a big toss to win in overcast, humid conditions with the balls winging around a lot on a fresh pitch.

Plenty still to play for in final three matches

Redditch Advertiser: Plenty still to play for in final three matches

9:30am Monday 27th August 2012

OUR six-wicket LV= County Championship Division One defeat up at Durham was a tough one to take and the batters certainly let us down in both innings.

We must show rivals no mercy whatsoever

12:00pm Tuesday 14th August 2012

FOLLOWING our disappointing seven-wicket LV= County Championship Division One defeat to Warwickshire, we have to be more ruthless as a team when we get into decent positions.

Heavy Worcestershire defeat at Sussex was unacceptable

Redditch Advertiser: GREAT SCOTT: Ben Scott nearly fired County to victory at Middlesex.

12:00pm Tuesday 7th August 2012

AFTER our performance in the innings and 117-run defeat to Sussex at Hove, where we were very poor in all aspects of the game, there has to be some changes to the side.

Tough Hove test next after poor Essex show

12:00pm Tuesday 31st July 2012

IF I’m being honest, we were pretty ordinary in the first-half of our Clydesdale Bank40 defeat to Essex at New Road.

Fantastic chance to reach finals day

Redditch Advertiser: UNBELIEVABLE: Ben Scott’s century played a key role in Worcestershire’s LV= County Championship Division One victory at Lancashire last week.

1:00pm Tuesday 24th July 2012

WE face Yorkshire tomorrow in the quarter-finals of the Friends Life t20 at Headingley and it is a good achievement to have reached this stage — that was one of our main goals at the start of the season.

We’re ready to face Gladiators challenge

Redditch Advertiser: ROAD TO RECOVERY: Alexei Kervezee is still on the sidelines after breaking a finger in the Friends Life t20 clash with Somerset Sabres.

10:00am Tuesday 17th July 2012

WE are hoping to beat the weather today and be able to play our Clydesdale Bank 40 match with Gloucestershire Gladiators at Cheltenham (1.45pm).

Poignant game up next for us

11:00am Tuesday 26th June 2012

WE play Glamorgan at New Road in the Friends Life t20 on Friday night and it will be our first game with them in this year’s competition after the SWALEC Stadium clash was postponed following the tragic death of Tom Maynard.

Our t20 displays can be helped by 40-over form

10:30am Tuesday 12th June 2012

WEATHER-permitting, we will step up our preparations for the Friends Life t20 today with some scenarios training out in the middle.

Patchy Somerset show sums up season so far

Redditch Advertiser: CRACKING START: Australian import Phil Hughes got his Worcestershire career under way with a century against Middlesex.

10:00am Tuesday 5th June 2012

OUR performance in the LV= County Championship Division One draw against Somerset was similar to how the season has gone so far.

Let’s sign off with Somerset success

Redditch Advertiser: PHIL HUGHES: Showing the sort of form Worcestershire will be hoping to benefit from this summer.

9:30am Monday 28th May 2012

WE play Somerset in our last LV= County Championship Division One game for over a month this week and it would be good to get a win to sign off before the one-day cricket takes over.

Training week awaits squad

Redditch Advertiser: GOOD INFLUENCE: Mike Klinger would be welcomed back to Worcestershire after completing his ‘fantastic’ early-season spell, according to County captain Daryl Mitchell.

10:00am Monday 21st May 2012

IT has been a pretty hectic start to the season and we now have a week off from cricket before the CB40 game with Middlesex at New Road on Sunday.

Kidderminster move is no problem for squad

2:00pm Monday 7th May 2012

IT is sad to see our New Road ground hit by the flooding, especially after the amount of effort that has gone in by so many people to get it ready for the start of the season.

We’re not too far away from clicking

2:00pm Monday 30th April 2012

I THOUGHT we bowled reasonably well on the first day of our LV= County Championship Division One match with Nottinghamshire at New Road, given it was quite a slow wicket that didn’t seam around as much as we thought it would.

We need to learn from last season’s mistakes

10:00am Monday 9th April 2012

IT is so important to get off to a good start in the first few LV= County Championship Division One matches this year.

Mission accomplished

Redditch Advertiser: ALAN RICHARDSON: Leading wicket-taker with 73.

9:20am Saturday 17th September 2011

IT was an unbelievable feeling knowing that we will be playing LV= County Championship Division One cricket next season.

We can still control our division destiny

Redditch Advertiser: GREAT NEWS: We all wanted to see Ben Scott (left) sign permanently.

10:00am Saturday 10th September 2011

I’M not really keeping an eye on what is happening elsewhere in the country.
