WORCESTERSHIRE CEO Ashley Giles has not ruled out the possibility of a second overseas signing ahead of the 2024 County Championship season.

Speaking on the brand new Three Pears Chat show, Giles was speaking about the recruitment for this upcoming season and hinted that there still may be more new faces to come in.

"Will we add? Maybe we are always looking for the right people but right now we are comfortable," Giles said. "We are looking at that area (second overseas player). We have a few niggles within our bowling attack so we may well go for a second overseas player in that area, particularly for those first seven games.

"In Division One, it could be a real challenge so we need to start really well and I want to give Richo (Alan Richardson, head coach) as much support a I can, as much firepower going into that first seven games.

"But bringing the right people into the club is the number one thing. It is the biggest investment to sign players on two/three year contracts, you have to get the right people and I am really comfortable and happy with the business we have done over the winter and the end of last season.

"The temptation when you lose players is almost a bit like whack-a-mole, you just try and fill the gaps but we have done our homework and research on players and we are happy with where we are at."

Worcestershire have New Zealander Nathan Smith at their disposal across all formats as the club's overseas signing this season, joining fellow new arrivals Tom Taylor, Ethan Brookes and Josh Cobb.
