At the nets now

Worcestershire wicketkeeper Rodney Cass prepares for action while Peter Scott tests the bowling.
Lowerhouse CC have started the season early, at least they have begun intensive practice - the indoor nets being at the Barden sports hall on a Sunday morning.
They had a distinguished visitor last Sunday morning when their Lancashire League representative Mr. W. Fielding was accompanied by Rodney Cass, formerly of Essex and now on the Worcestershire CCC ground staff and probable first-team wicketkeeper for 1969.
Rodney attended prepared to practise with the Lowerhouse players and had a workout along with the new West End professional, South African Des Sparks and the new captain, John Stott, who has succeeded Malcolm Blackhurst.
Decision on the playing of the artificial pitch - "excellent".
