High praise for Worker and Grundy as Knowle & Dorridge down Wolverhampton

Craig Gibbons 20th Jul, 2018

SKIPPER Sam Reddish was left mesmerised by stunning performances by New Zealand international George Worker and bowler Jack Grundy as Knowle & Dorridge brushed aside Birmingham League Premier Division basement boys Wolverhampton.

After returning from a stint in the Canadian Premier League, Worker (107) joined Alex Phillips (84) at the crease with the pair resuming their successful opening partnership as K&D piled up 311-8.

Jordan Bulpitt took 4-73 for Wolverhampton but a spell of 5-54 from K&D’s Jack Grundy prompted the downfall of the Black Country visitors who were dismissed for 162.

“Wolverhampton are a better side than their position suggests but we executed our game plan perfectly to come away with another 24 points,” said Reddish.

“There were some great contributions from George and Jack who are playing some quite incredible stuff right now.

“George is by far the best player this league has ever seen and in his last 20 innings he has scored more than 2,000 runs for us which is absolutely remarkable.

“It is hard to comprehend just how good George is.

“As for Jack, he has now taken 38 wickets this season and with nine games left, he is looking to get more than 50 which would be another remarkable achievement.”

K&D entertain Barnt Green on Saturday.

Reddish and Will Mottram are unavailable but Mike Brown and Rueben Astheimer will replace them.
