Four Worcestershire CCC players were ever presents during the 2019 Specsavers County Championship campaign.

Riki Wessels, Daryl Mitchell, Ben Cox and Ed Barnard featured in all 14 of the Division Two matches this summer.

Wessels ended as the County’s leading run-scorer with 593 runs including a century on his home debut against Durham.

Mitchell (559), Cox (531) and Callum Ferguson (503) were the other main run-scorers.

Barnard finished as Worcestershire’s joint leading wicket-taker with 44 victims – the third campaign in a row he has taken 40 plus wickets.

Charlie Morris also collected 44 scalps from his 11 appearances including a career best 7-45 in the away encounter with Leicestershire.

Club Captain Joe Leach was not far behind on 41 wickets after his return to action following last summer’s stress fracture of the back.

He also bowled the most overs – 384.4 – of any of the County’s bowlers.
