Warwickshire ended day three with a slender lead as both batsman dominated at Blackfinch New Road.

With the 120 over declaration rule in place, Worcestershire reached 410/7 in reply to the Bears 355/9, earning a 55 run lead.

However, Will Rhodes (42 not out) and Rob Yates (21 not out) experienced few problems in the 23 overs possible in Warwickshire’s second innings as they wiped out their side’s first innings deficit and earned a lead of 13.
