Worcestershire Seconds excellent form in four-day cricket this summer is reflected in their high position in the Second Eleven Championship table with two games remaining.

The Seconds have won four of their eight matches so far this summer and are lying in fourth spot in the 18-team table.

A team’s position is determined by the average number of points per game as counties all play different numbers of matches throughout a season.

Worcestershire have had an extensive fixture list and only third placed Lancashire, the only side to defeat them this season in red ball cricket, have played more fixtures.

Their quartet of victories have been registered against Derbyshire at Repton School, Gloucestershire at Stourport, Northamptonshire at Geddington CC and Glamorgan at New Road.

The Seconds – like all counties – are not playing any cricket during August because of potential call-ups for Worcestershire players for the Metro Bank One Day Cup and The Hundred.

But they will end the season with a double header in the Championship next month.

Worcestershire entertain Nottinghamshire Seconds at Kidderminster, beginning on Monday, September 4, and then travel to Taunton Vale to face Somerset Seconds from Monday, September 11.
