Worcestershire vs Derbyshire Day 1

darylStumps, Day One: Derbyshire 3-2 (Andrew 2/1 Morris 1/1) v Worcestershire by Chathura Pinnawala at New Road.

Persistent drizzle and wet ground conditions prevented any meaningful play in the LV Championship Division II match between Worcestershire and Derbyshire which commenced today at New Road.

Only four overs were possible for the entire day and the visitors found it hard to counter the seam movement to finish at 3-2, having elected to bat. Gareth Andrew dismissed Billy Godleman for 3 as an inside edge crashed on to the stumps while youngster Charles Morris produced a ripper which jagged back and castled a perplexed Stephen Moore who didn’t offer a stroke.

It was during a brief period from 4.30pm, but just as Moore trudged off to the pavilion, rain followed him ending any further play. Worcestershire made just one change from the previous victory against Kent, drafting in Saeed Ajmal in place of Shaaiq Chowdhry while for Derbyshire, Dan Hodgson and David Wainwright took the places of Richard Johnson and Mark Turner.

Play is scheduled to begin at 11am tomorrow.
