New deals for Worcs trio

Worcestershire have handed spin trio Shaaiq Choudhry, Brett D'Oliveira and Ed Barnard new contracts.

Choudhry has played in all formats this season and has benefited from Moeen Ali's call-up to England, having also been behind overseas player Saeed Ajmal in the pecking order.

He has signed a one-year deal, while leg-spinner D'Oliveira, grandson of the former England and Worcestershire batsman Basil, has signed a two-year contract.

England Under-19 all-rounder Barnard has extended his stay at New Road by a further year that commits him to the club until the end of the 2016 campaign.
