Brett D'Oliveira and Joe Clarke are neck and neck as Worcestershire's leading run-scorers in the Specsavers County Championship this summer – with Joe Leach out on his own as top wicket-taker.

D'Oliveira, who missed the game with Kent at Canterbury because of a dislocated finger, is just three runs ahead of Clarke on 690 at an average of 49.29 compared to 42.94.

With five matches remaining, the England Lions duo are both on target to reach 1,000 runs in a season for the first time.

Tom Kohler-Cadmore is next in line with 552 runs at 36.80 followed by keeper Ben Cox with 470 at 36.15.

Leach has followed up his 59 wickets last season with another 40 despite conditions generally being more batsmen friendly with the aid of the new 'toss' rule.

New Zealand paceman Matt Henry, with 27 from his six appearances for the County, is next in line followed by Ed Barnard on 20.
