HENLEY’S Richard Morris will skipper Berkshire against Cheshire at one of his former clubs, Falkland, in the three-day Unicorns Championship game starting on Sunday (11am).

The batsman takes over from his brother James, who is unable to play due to work commitments.

Berkshire will also be without Reading all-rounder Martin Andersson, who will be playing for Middlesex 2nds, and Henley spinner Euan Woods, who is on similar duties with Surrey.

Their replacements are Henley batsman Michael Roberts, Finchampstead batter Billy Rogers and Slough spinner Ali Akbar. Henley’s wicket-keeper Stewart Davison will be back behind the stumps, having missed the Wales game last week due to coaching commitments with Oxford MCCU.

The Berkshire squad is as follows: Ollie Wilkin (Ealing), Waqas Hussain (Slough), Michael Roberts (Henley), Richard Morris (Henley), Billy Rogers (Finchampstead), Andy Rishton (Finchampstead), Chris Peploe (Datchet), Stewart Davison (wkt, Henley), Matt Carter (Finchampstead), Tom Nugent (Henley), Ali Akbar (Slough), Mark Firth (Boyne Hill).
