Nottinghamshire are about to embark on the new 2018 season, where they are back in Specsavers County Championship Division One after a one-year hiatus. In the lead-up to it, is running the rule over their seven opponents, one each day – with a little bit of help from left-arm seamer Harry Gurney. Today we focus on Worcestershire.


Captain: Joe Leach (pictured).

Head Coach: Kevin Sharp.

Championship overseas player: Travis Head (Australia).

Championship signing: Steve Magoffin (Sussex).

Ground: Blackfinch New Road.

Betting odds: 20-1.

Harry says: “They are a cracking club with a lovely ground and a bunch of talented and energetic young players who have all grown up together and enjoyed each other’s company. They are certainly not to be underestimated and played some excellent cricket in beating us to the Division Two title last year. If they get on a role in Division One, then who knows?
