CLARKE MOVES TO TOP OF COUNTY'S CHAMPIONSHIP AVERAGES

 

Joe Clarke has moved to the top of Worcestershire's batting averages in the Specsavers County Championship after his match-saving knock against Gloucestershire at Cheltenham.

The England Lions player struck an impressive 93 not out in the second innings to rescue the County from 5-3.

The 21-year-old has now amassed 634 runs at an average of 52.58.

Opener Daryl Mitchell remains Worcestershire's highest run-scorer despite a modest contribution against Gloucestershire.

He has totalled 745 runs with four centuries at an average of just under 50.

Opener Brett D'Oliveira has now passed 500 Championship runs for 2017 - the third Worcestershire player to reach that figure.

On the bowling front, skipper Joe Leach is the leading wicket-taker with 44 - the joint highest tally in Division Two with Sussex's Jofra Archer.

Leach is followed by Josh Tongue on 34 while Ed Barnard's five wicket haul at Cheltenham during some impressive spells of bowling has lifted him onto 24 wickets.
