Saeed Ajmal is the leading wicket-taker in the country after the completion of the latest round of matches in the LV = County Championship.

The Worcestershire spin star's 6-19 on the final day of the win over Leicestershire at Grace Road took his tally for the season to 44 in seven matches.

Ajmal is seven ahead of Sussex's former Worcestershire paceman Steve Magoffin who has 37 victims from eight games.

Worcestershire left armer Jack Shantry and his new ball partner Charlie Morris also feature in the top 20 wicket-takers with 32 and 26 respectively.

The county's captain, Daryl Mitchell, is the second highest run-getter in the Championship with 920 at an average of 92.00 including four centuries.

Alexei Kervezee is Worcestershire's other batsman to have topped 500 runs so far this summer at an average of 42.25.

Worcestershire do not feature in the next round of games which start today (Sunday) and will next be in four-day action against Glamorgan at New Road from next Sunday (June 29).
