Seven Worcestershire players scored LV = County Championship centuries to help their side gain promotion to Division One.

Tom Fell, Ben Cox, Richard Oliver and Jack Shantry all reached the milestone for the first time in the competition.

Skipper Daryl Mitchell hit five hundreds with Fell and Alexei Kervezee twice getting to three figures.

While Mitchell was comfortably Worcestershire's leading run-getter, Kervezee had a vastly improved campaign to finish as the next highest scorer.

Seven players scored 500 or more runs in the Championship and chipped in with crucial contributions.

Saeed Ajmal finished as top wicket-taker with 63 victimes with Shantry (56) and Charlie Morris (52) also topping the half century mark.

Gareth Andrew (four matches) and Joe Leach (12 matches) shared the all-rounder duties and scored a combined tally of 555 runs and picked up 53 wickets.
