Worcestershire Seconds rain-hit four day clash with Warwickshire Seconds at Barnt Green ended in a high-scoring draw.

With the elements washing out the first seven sessions of the game, there was only sufficient time for both sides to bat for one innings.

Worcestershire resumed on 357-7 after Zen Malik's maiden hundred yesterday and eventually declared on 381-9.

Ben Twohig, who was 51 not out overnight, added another nine runs before being dismissed by former Worcestershire paceman Richard Jones.

Chris Russell extended his innings from 30 not out to 45 before becoming a third victim of Oliver Hannon-Dalby.

Russell and Alex Hepburn sent back Andrew Umeed (18) and William Porterfield (16) to leave Warwickshire on 52-2.

But then Laurie Evans (130) and Freddie Coleman (85) added 183 for the third wicket and Warwickshire eventually closed on 319-4 declared.

Twohig and George Rhodes were the other wicket-takers.
