Charlie Morris had a difficult 2016 season which was dominated by the need to remodel his action. There proved to no easy rewards as he played only seven Championship matches and his 11 wickets cost more than 50 runs apiece. Worcestershire insisted that the efforts would pay dividends in time.
Another product of King's College, Taunton - the school that developed Jos Buttler, Roger Twose, Richard Harden and Alex Barrow among others - Morris played age-group cricket for Somerset and then attended Oxford-Brookes University, making his first-class debut for Oxford MCCU in 2012.
He represented Devon in Minor Counties cricket in 2011 and, on the back of that, was recommended to Worcestershire. He made a decent - though far from outstanding - impression for their second XI, so it was something of a surprise when he won selection in the first team at the start of the following season.
He started the 2014 season representing Oxford MCCU and finished it having taken more than 50 Championship wickets and helping Worcestershire achieve promotion. Maintaining a tight, probing line and length and enjoying an apparently insatiable appetite for bowling, Morris fulfilled a valuable role in a side that defined its lowly reputation to claim promotion. He finished with 52 Championship wickets at an average of 26.36 with a maiden five-wicket haul against Derbyshire the high-point. He also gained a nomination for the Cricket Writers' Club's young player of the year award and a new, long-term contract.
While he ran out of steam a little towards the end of the 2015 season, he proved effective in Division One, claiming a nine-wicket match haul in a crushing win over Somerset and finishing the campaign with 44 victims. ESPNcricinfo staff
