Ben Cox's fine run of form has elevated him into the top 10 of the leading run-getters in Division One of the LV = County Championship this season.

The Worcestershire wicket-keeper has not looked back since he scored an unbeaten 48 in the second innings of the match with Sussex at Hove.

His unbeaten 69 in the drawn game with Hampshire at the Ageas Bowl earlier this week carried his run tally for 2015 past the 400 mark.

Worcestershire have three players featuring in the top part of the leading wicket-takers in Division One.

Joe Leach's superb form since coming into the side for the third game of the season means he has taken 27 wickets in four matches -the fourth highest tally in the country.

Charlie Morris and Jack Shantry have also exceeded the 20 wicket mark for Director of Cricket Steve Rhodes' side.

Former Worcestershire paceman Steve Magoffin is the joint leading wicket-taker with 35 victims for Sussex. LV =
