Worcestershire CCC Academy player, Jack Home, continued his good form by hitting a quick-fire 32 to help the Midlands complete a trio of wins in the Super Fours, against London and East at Loughborough.

Home had struck an unbeaten 62 to see the Midlands over the finishing line against the South and West on the previous day.

This time he capitalised on the good work of Travis Holland (58), Amir Khan (79) and Sam Seecharan (59) by hitting late order runs to lift the final total past 300.

Home came in at 206-4 and put on 71 in just eight overs with Seecharan.

He was dismissed in the final over after hitting two sixes and two fours in his 31 ball knock, as the Midlands totalled 323-6 in 50 overs after opting to bat.

Worcestershire CCC Pathway duo, Ben Clarke, and Ben Clements, formed part of the Midlands attack, and returned figures of 9.1-0-47-1 and 4-0-18-0 respectively.

Clarke dismissed last man Arthur Wilcox, who was stumped, as London and East were bowled out for 196 in 43.1 overs.

*Worcestershire Under-18s hold a lead of 126 with six wickets in hand, heading into the final day of the ECB County Competitions encounter with Warwickshire at Portland Road, Edgbaston.

Worcestershire had declared on the opening day on 308-3, and Warwickshire replied by posting 260-1 declared, with Josh Dickenson claiming the solitary wicket.
