George Worker, a left-hand top-order batsman, scored 71 on his first-class debut opening the batting for Central Districts in December 2007. Captaining Palmerston North Boys, the same school that Jacob Oram studied at, Worker also made it to New Zealand's under-19 team. Apart from his batting, Worker also adds value with his part-time left-arm spin.
He has steadily improved his return in first-class cricket, the 680 runs at 35.78 in 2011-12 being his best season. His one-day record is better, with 307 runs at 51.16 in 2010-11 and 308 runs at 38.50 in 2011-12.
For the 2012 English season, he had signed to be Scotland's overseas player in the Clydesdale Bank 40 but had to withdraw after being called up to the national winter development programme in New Zealand.
Some of the reactions on Twitter to Virat Kohli's record-equalling hundred during India's chase in Pune
In the past week, we have seen two shots that left us awestruck: Virat Kohli's jab that sailed over midwicket and Najibullah Zadran's six over the extra-cover boundary despite slipping in the process. Will either of the two top this compilation?
Stats highlights from the first ODI between India and England in Pune
Some of India's finest wins have come with Yuvraj Singh and MS Dhoni in harness at the crease. At Cuttack they rolled back the years to extraordinary effect
The Twitter world rose up to applaud Yuvraj Singh's hundred, in his second game since being recalled to India's ODI squad
Currently, Ajinkya Rahane doesn't quite have the body of work in ODIs that merit his inclusion. What can he do to press for selection in the Champions Trophy?
His Test stats as batsman and bowler compare favourably with some of the best allrounders, which is why his second-innings dismissal in Wellington is all the more puzzling
The shot Shakib Al Hasan played to be dismissed on day five at Basin Reserve defies explanation. It also prompts a few questions
As batting and bowling in ODIs takes on more of the attacking virtues of T20 cricket, where does the format stand as a product of its own?
