A stomach bug that swept through the side and affected several of the first-team players seems to have passed.
Worcestershire are confident that their players are over the stomach bug that affected several members of their squad, ahead of their second County Championship match with Glamorgan on Wednesday.
Captain Daryl Mitchell was the most high profile player struck down with the illness and although he did manage to play in their drawn match at Lancashire, he had to drop down to No.7 in the batting order – but still managed to score a half-century.
However, Mitchell has been passed fully fit for the game with Glamorgan and the club will be hoping that the problem has now left the team.
“It’s a bug that has been doing the rounds in the dressing room,” Worcestershire director of cricket Steve Rhodes told the BBC.
“We’ve had a few lads off with it the past couple of weeks.”
The county was somewhat fortunate to take a draw from Old Trafford as a rain-affected final day essentially ended Lancashire’s chances of beating their visitors.
With the Red Rose being one of the favourites for the County Championship Division Two title this year, Mitchell and his side will be more than pleased with a share of the spoils in Manchester.
Moeen Ali also impressed for the county as he joined his skipper by hitting a half-century, whilst there has been further good news for the club with Dutch batsman Alexei Kervezee announcing his retirement from the Netherlands team to concentrate on county cricket.
Worcestershire start their second four-day match of the 2013 campaign at Cardiff on Wednesday at 11.00 BST.
