    You may do, but nowhere near as good as Yorkshire. The only good player Worcester have got is Graeme Hick, and he's past it. They haven't got any batting or bowling back-up to go with Hick. Yorkshire on the other hand have good batters and bowlers.

    They have:

    Batsmen: Darren Lehmann, Michael Vaughan, Craig White, David Byas, Martin Lumb.

    Bowlers: Darren Gough, Matthew Hoggard, Ryan Sidebottom, Chris Silverwood, Richard Dawson, Ian Fisher, Steve Kirby, Chris Elstub, Gavin Hamilton.

    Beat that, pal!

    Call me a cynic, but they won't!

    Worcester are in the 2nd division!

    To be fair we did have the makings of a good team 2 years ago..this year i was excited by our team..but players like Hall / Bichel / Smith etc just didnt perform and the likes of Mason and Kabir Ali were injured. Which as you can see most of them were bowlers! which isnt good when your bowling was your strong point!
    Bichel has left and so will Hall by the looks of it so hopefully we will get some proper bowlers in and Mason / Ali can play injury free next year!

    I suppose the batting was always going to struggle if Lehmann wasn't available to bail it out, especially given the near 100% absence of Vaughan nowadays, but the demise of the bowling really has surprised me. I know Silverwood & White are nearly in the Alex Tudor class when it comes to injuries, but what on earth happened with Sidebottom? And what's Kirby's problem?

    I wonder if future generations will view the Byas departure as one of the great Yorkshire messups on a par with Close & Illingworth. Maybe it was an irrelevance given the collapse of the bowling lineup and the general lack of quality anyway.
