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.

India's wretched run away from home began at Lord's in 2011. A young team full of self-belief may have brought it to an end with their victory at the same venue three years later
