Jayasuriya may not play for Worcester's final 2 matches

WORCESTERSHIRE Royals could go into Sunday’s final Friends Provident t20 North Group match without an overseas player after they revealed Shakib Al Hasan will not be arriving until next week.

It was hoped that the Bangladesh vice-captain would join the New Road outfit for the final two games - Warwickshire Bears away on Friday night and Lancashire Lightning at home on Sunday.

However, he will remain with his national side until next Tuesday night before joining up with the rest of his new team-mates in Derby for the LV= County Championship Division Two clash with Derbyshire the following day.

New Road chief executive Mark Newton said Sri Lankan star Sanath Jayasuriya may be released prior to the clash with Lancashire should the Royals’ quarter-final hopes be over.

The Bangladeshi cricket authorities told Newton today that the world’s leading one-day all-rounder will play their two one-day internationals in Ireland before heading north to play Scotland on Monday and the Netherlands, in which County batsman Alexei Kervezee will feature, on the Tuesday before making the near 300-mile trip from Glasgow to Derby.

It is a bitter blow for the Royals as the news comes after Australian opener Phil Jaques headed back home to New South Wales.

“We understand the Bangladesh Cricket Board’s stance,” Newton said. “Of course, we are disappointed, but they regard all their matches as important and they have picked up a number of injuries.

“But when you sign international players this can happen as their boards have first rights, so it’s a great shame that Shakib will miss our Twenty20 campaign.”

Newton said the County will talk to Jayasuriya this week about his involvement in the final two matches of the Royals t20 campaign.

Worcestershire need to win their remaining two games to stand a chance to progression, but the New Road chief executive admits all hopes of a place in the last eight would be all but over should Derbyshire Falcons beat Durham Dynamos tomorrow night.

If the Falcons win in the north-east it would mean, should they lose their final two matches, that progression would go down to run-rate and Derbyshire have a vastly superior one to Worcestershire.

“Sanath will be in the squad on Friday, but we will talk to him this week about the final match if we are no longer in contention,” Newton said.

“The key match is tomorrow’s meeting between Derbyshire and Durham. If Derbyshire win then it could go down to run-rate and we are a long, long way behind.”
