Worcestershire Seconds Coach, Kadeer Ali, is still a force with the bat in league cricket at the age of 39.

Kadeer became the first player to pass 500 runs in the Birmingham and District Premier League this summer in the latest round of matches.

He hit 80 for Smethwick in their rain-affected drawn Premier Division One game with newly-promoted Halesowen – his fifth fifty-plus score this season.

One of the Worcestershire youngsters who has broken into the Seconds, all-rounder Reeve Evitts, picked up four wickets for Kenilworth Wardens in another drawn game.

Evitts finished with figures of 9-0-24-4, his best league figures of 2022, to take his wicket tally to 22 at 22.09.

Worcestershire pace bowler, Adam Finch, was also amongst the wickets for Wolverhampton in an eight-wicket win over Wem.

Finch, who has played in three LV=Insurance County Championship matches this season, returned 7-2-14-4 as Wem were dismissed for just 44 in 19.2 overs.

Academy player, Ismail Mohammed, helped West Bromwich Dartmouth to a two-wicket win over Lichfield.

He struck three times with the ball, including top scorer Tom Swift (69), and ended with 3-46 as Dartmouth chased down a 236 target.
