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.
Stats highlights from the fourth day in Ranchi, where Cheteshwar Pujara batted for ages and the Australians toiled like they haven't had to in many years
For the third time this home season, the team took the lead after its opposition put up 400 batting first but the Ranchi effort was special
Did Virat Kohli get his tactics right on the final day in Ranchi? Going by his fast bowlers' lines and R Ashwin's late introduction, the Indian captain took a few puzzling calls
On a pitch most suited for him on this tour, David Warner, the T20-specialist-turned-Test star, got his eye in and then played a wasteful shot. The grown-up knock came from another T20 specialist, instead: Glenn Maxwell
Sudhir Gautam, uber Tendulkar fan, is now rooting for a new sport
Three days ahead of the fourth Test, the surface at the HPCA Stadium wore a smattering of grass. Will that, or Mohammed Shami's availability, subject to fitness, change India's combination?
South Africa are set to play 14 Tests in nine months soon, so both fast bowlers, despite being sent home from New Zealand, should not lose hope
This Bangladesh are crazy if they think they can beat Sri Lanka in their own den. Right?
Under duress again, Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim forged a match-winning partnership and contributed in the second innings to help Bangladesh create history
