Match Notes

  • Carberry ton brings hard-fought draw

    It was a shame that the only day of this encounter unblemished by rain merely saw the game home to a draw but Michael Carberry scored a fine, second hundred of the season, to steer his side to safety.

  • Hampshire follow on after Ajmal seven

    Worcestershire lead by 152 runs, needing nine Hampshire wickets to secure an innings victory over their Division Two rivals

  • Maiden Cox ton is Worcs reward

    Ben Cox scored his maiden first-class hundred to help Worcestershire beyond par and to a useful first-innings score on a two-paced pitch

  • Kervezee fights Moeen, Mitchell deficit

    A Moeen Ali-less Worcestershire is a lesser team, but it was the early loss of Daryl Mitchell - the country's leading Championship run-scorer - that was a bigger blow in the context of the game
