MARCUS Cook says Saturday’s first half against Kenilworth was the best rugby he has seen a Stratford-upon-Avon team play.

WARWICKSHIRE were unable to complete an historic limited-overs double at Lord’s today, losing a tense low-scoring Royal London One Day Cup final to Durham by three wickets.

His four lbws reduced Durham to 88-5 and then 131-7, but it was England man Ben Stokes who stayed in long enough to get Durham ove…

Warwickshire limp to 165 all out in the One Day final

WARWICKSHIRE County Cricket Club limped to 165 all out in the first innings of today’s Royal London One Day Cup final. A steady 64 from new club captain Varun Chopra helped recover an innings that was perilously close to collapse at 68-5, but the opening batsman will be furious at himself for allowing Chris Rushworth to clip the top of his leg stump when he was looking to kick on. Durham are undoubtedly favourites at this stage of the match, and their decision to put Warwickshire into ba…
