Kevin Sharp has hailed a "high class performance" by Worcestershire Seconds who today wrapped up an innings and 40 run victory over Yorkshire Seconds at Barnt Green.

Worcestershire picked up the remaining four wickets before lunch to seal their first win of the season in the Second Eleven Championship.

It followed on from four successive victories in the Second Eleven T20 competition against Leicestershire and Warwickshire.

Ed Barnard was the county's second innings bowling hero with 5-67 to follow on from his 60 with the bat while Alex Hepburn collected three more wickets to take his match tally to seven.

Yorkshire resumed on 130-6 and were dismissed for 171.

Second eleven coach Sharp, who is also the county's batting coach, said: "It has been a high class performance against a good side.

"The lads have done brilliantly and there have been some outstanding performances. It's been a great team effort.

"Kohler-Cadmore's 150 was an exceptional innings supported particularly by Ed Barnard who has then got wickets and Alex Hepburn has got wickets. It's very pleasing.

"We've had a couple of average weeks with the three-day cricket but we've really put that right in this game."
