Worcestershire v Warwickshire

The Worcestershire Royals held their nerve in the final over at New Road to beat local rivals the Warwickshire Bears by a single run.

Veteran David Leatherdale had Stuart Eustace stumped and kept Mike Powell from hitting out, the former skipper ending 40 not out from 26 balls.

Graeme Hick began the match in crashing style with 67 from 43 balls, including a six on to the pavilion balcony.

And Ben Smith added 47 from 28 deliveries as the Royals posted 176-9, just out of reach of their rivals.
