Worcestershire CCC paceman Charlie Morris celebrates a decade since making his first-class debut next summer and is determined to keep on improving.

Morris will turn 30 next July but regards age as “just a number” and is aiming to keep getting better and better.

The Hereford-born player recently signed a contract extension until the end of the 2023 season after passing 200 first class wickets last summer.

He also finished as Worcestershire leading wicket-taker in the 2021 Vitality Blast.

Morris is renowned for his work ethic at New Road and, as always, will look to make the most of winter training at Malvern College.

He said: “Age is just a number. There is no reason why I can’t get better and better each year. I know the general rule of thumb is peaking in your late 20s as a cricketer.

“But I’ve had a bit of a mixed career at times and haven’t had quite as many games as a 29-year-old would usually have in comparison, and have missed out on a season or so of games.

“Are the best years ahead? I certainly can’t see why not. I hope so. My work ethic and my approach to training will not change. I will continue to give my all.

“It wouldn’t be wrong of me to say, if you look back over the last three years, I’ve had a bit of an upward trend overall and seen a considerable improvement across the board, in terms of the number of wickets I’ve taken.

“I can’t see why I can’t continue to improve and give myself the best chance to be more successful in the years ahead.

“I won’t rest on some of the success I’ve managed to have.”

Morris ended the 2021 season on a high note in the LV=Insurance County Championship with 6-52 against Middlesex at Lord’s and a maiden fifty in the competition against Leicestershire at New Road.
