Barker then bowled Kervezee for 19 before Chris Wright took his sixth wicket of the match, bowling Leitch.

Enter Boyd Rankine who took the wickets of D'Olivera and Cox and Worcestershire had seven wickets down for 192, well short of the 412 runs they needed to make Warwicks bat again.

After lunch, Chris Wright bowled Russell for a duck.

Mooen Ali and Harrison moved the score past two hundred but Wright came in to bowl Harrison.

Then in the 71st over, Wright took his fourth wicket when he bowled Richardson for four to see Worcestershire all out for 209 and a victory for Warwickshire which gave them their first County Championship since 2004.
