A completely rock-solid performance from Moeen Ali & co as they outclassed Northamptonshire by 32 runs. Needing a good start to chase this competitive total, JC Tongue got rid of Richard Levi in the first ball of the over, courtesy of Oliveira's sharp catch at point. Ricardo Vasconcelos too fell cheaply before Rossington joined hands wth Josh Cobb.

Cobb played some lovely shots, smashing Ben Dwarshuis for four boundaries in an over. Morris dismissed Josh Cobb when he looked a serious threat to the bowlers. It's always tricking facing world-class spinners when your middle order is too inexperienced. And as expected, Moeen Ali and Ish Sodhi ran the show in the middle. The duo bowled eight overs on the trot, picking up three wickets, and conceded 41 runs.

When it looked like Northamptonshire would face a heavy defeat, Saif Zaib went all guns blazing and smashed 36 off 21 balls with six boundaries. Unfortunately, his cameo only helped the team to reduce the deficit of the defeat. Overall the better team won and you could see the smiles and celebrations of Worcestershire dressing room. That's it from us, hope you enjoyed the coverage. Until next time, this is Pragadeesh waving goodnight on behalf of my fellow colleague Abhishek. Cheers.

18.6 Ben Dwarshuis to Ben Sanderson, full and angling wide cut to the backward point for a single. 
18.5 Ben Dwarshuis to Graeme White, full and angling away and it is lofted to the deep point. But the fielder takes a simple catch. 
18.4 Ben Dwarshuis to Ben Sanderson, a short length delivery cut to the deep point region for a single. 
18.4 Ben Dwarshuis to Ben Sanderson, WIDE OFF THE LEG STUMP!
18.3 Ben Dwarshuis to Ben Sanderson, another swing and a miss. This time it was full and little over the middle stump. 
18.2 Ben Dwarshuis to Ben Sanderson, dot ball as Sanderson doesn't get a touch. 
18.1 Ben Dwarshuis to Saif Zaib, a full length delivery pushed to the cover region. He tries to come for the second but gets his dive a little late. ZAIB IS RUN OUT!
It's not a good sight if you are a Northamptonshire fan. All credit goes to Zaib for putting a strong fight, despite it looked his team was done and dusted in the 10th over.
