Daryl Mitchell’s fine season in first class cricket means he has jumped up two places in the list of Worcestershire’s all-time record run-scorers.

The 33-year-old began the campaign needing 118 more runs to complete 10,000 first class runs for the County.

That milestone duly arrived during a century against Derbyshire at the 3aaa County Ground – the 25th player to complete that run tally for Worcestershire.

But Mitchell has now leapfrogged past former team-mate and County CEO David Leatherdale and Dick Howorth into 23rd spot.

His total of 758 runs so far this summer – including four centuries – means he has now amassed 10,640.

There is now a sizeable gap until number 22 on the list in Bob Broadbent with 12,800 but Mitchell still has another three years to run on his current contract – plus the final four matches of 2017.

Mitchell has, in fact, gone past 11,000 first class runs but 402 of that tally came for other teams.

He scored 339 for Mountaineers in Zimbabwe and 63 for the MCC against Yorkshire in the Champion County match in Abu Dhabi in 2015.
