Worcestershire lost their 2nd XI Trophy match by 10 runs against the MCC Young Cricketers at High Wycombe.
The Young Cricketers won the toss and elected to bat first and in their 40 overs scored 276-6, with Stuart Poynter top-scoring with 74, with the wickets taken by Naqaash Tahir (2-45 off 8 overs), Nick Harrison (2-49 off 5 overs), Joe Leach (1-47 off 7 overs) and Brett D'Oliveira (1-56 off 8 overs).
In reply Worcestershire were in trouble at 71-4, with J Leach scoring 41, but a fifth wicket partnership of 188 between D'Oliveira and Alex Hepburn looked to have swung the match in Worcestershire's favour until the wicket of D'Oliveira, who scored 93 off 86 balls, with 11 fours and 1 six, proved to be costly as the visitors fell 10 runs short, as they ended up on 266-6 from their 40 overs, with Hepburn unbeaten on 101 off 77 balls, with 11 fours and 2 sixes
