Gareth Andrew is a former England Under-19 seamer who has become a useful allrounder for Worcestershire having began his career at Somerset in 2003.
At the end of the 2007 season, he transferred to New Road and established himself as a handy allrounder with his bustling medium-pace and hard-hitting lower-order batting. He became a County Championship regular in 2008 and steadily improved his returns, breaking the 50-wicket barrier for the first time in 2011 with 52 at 29.71. But like most of the Worcestershire side, slumped in 2012 as the club were relegated.
He spent the winter of 2012-13 playing for Canterbury in New Zealand and made his maiden first-class century - 180 not out - against Auckland at Eden Park.
In one-day cricket, Andrew has failed to make much impression with the bat, although did make a maiden List A ton in 2010 - only his second 50-plus score. His bowling isn't quite tight enough for the shorter format at his pace and his has conceded above a run-a-ball in every season for Worcestershire and only took two wickets in 2012.
