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.
For 30 minutes, everything else took a backseat, as the world watched in awe and fear, a fired-up Pakistan fast bowler mercilessly bullying an Australian batsman
As a six-year-old, he watched Wasim Akram at the 1992 World Cup and decided that he would be a left-arm fast bowler. As a man, he put on a show very nearly as memorable as Wasim's 23 years before
The SCG might be India's preferred semi-final venue at this World Cup, but persistent rain in the lead-up has left them worried their spinners may not get the help they are widely expected to
This contest brings together a belligerent bunch of brats and braggers from two countries that are so different, yet share rampant egotism and a high opinion of themselves
Over the last few months, he has slowly moved from a flashy finisher, to a more measured risk manager
It was Grant Elliott and New Zealand's time in Auckland. Not South Africa's. But the Proteas will leave this tournament wondering when that will ever change. Maybe next time.
