New Zealand international George Worker set to light up Kenilworth Wardens T20 series next week

CRICKET: NEW Zealand international George Worker is set to make his regional T20 debut next week in the annual Harlequin Logistics T20 competition.

The 27-year-old Kiwi has appeared twice in the black of New Zealand during T20 games, one of which saw him hit a huge 62 runs from 38 balls in a man of the match performance against Zimbabwe.

Worker is currently taking the Birmingham Premier League by storm, amassing over 1,000 runs from 10 Knowle and Dorridge innings.

And the batsman is in the form of his life, with an average of more than 150.

Worker will not be the only first class cricketer on display though.

Saurashtra state’s Prerak Mankad will play for Kenilworth Wardens after arriving from India earlier this season.

Prerak has a first class T20 average of 34 with a strike rate of 140.

The first class players will be supported by an array of highly talented regional cricketers.

The tournament promises to be a phenomenal week of floodlit cricket at Kenilworth Warden’s Glasshouse Park ground.

Games will run from Monday to Wednesday with the Grand Final taking place at 7pm on Friday, August 25.

Tickets can be purchased on the gate for £2 per person or £5 per car.
