WORCESTERSHIRE 2ND XI v WARWICKSHIRE 2ND XI - TROPHY REPORT
Worcestershire were beaten by 7 wickets in their 2nd XI 40-Over Trophy match against Warwickshire at Ombersley.
The home side won the toss and elected to bat first but had stumbled to 15-4 in the 7th over as Tom Fell (1), Tom Kohler-Cadmore (3), Alexei Kervezee (5) and Neil Pinner (0) all departed.
Joe Leach (30) and Aneesh Kapil (23) tried to kickstart the innings before their dismissals left Worcestershire on 68-6 but an unbeaten seventh wicket partnership of 91 between Michael Johnson, 50 not out off 63 balls, and Shaaiq Choudhry, 40 not out off 45 balls, took them to 159-6 off their 40 overs.
In reply Graeme Cessford took the first wicket in the opening over but the experienced Darren Maddy, 91 not out off 92 balls, anchored the innings to perfection as Warwickshire secured a comfortable 7 wicket win with 8 overs to spare.
For Worcestershire the wickets were taken by Cessford (1-18 off 5 overs), Pinner (1-12 off 2 overs), and Choudhry (1-30 off 8 overs).
