Worcestershire 302 for 5 (Mitchell 67, D’Oliveira 67, Fell 53) trail Essex 561 for 8 dec by 259 runs

Essex worked their way through some dogged Worcestershire batting to continue their push for victory on the third day of their LV=Insurance County Championship match at New Road. In reply to the champions’ 561 for 8 declared, the home side closed the third day on 302 for 5.

Essex were held up by two stands of 111, between openers Daryl Mitchell, who made 67 off 141 balls, and Jake Libby, and then fourth-wicket pair Tom Fell (53 off 162 balls) and Brett D’Oliveira (67 off 147 balls). The bowlers persevered, though, led by spinner Simon Harmer whose figures of 39-12-75-3 included a late-morning burst of three for four in 22 balls.
