VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM
Worcestershire director of cricket Steve Rhodes told BBC Hereford and Worcester:
"To be perfectly honest that was one of our best displays of solid batting, and I thought Daryl Mitchell and Michael Klinger had set us up with a real chance of victory.
"We highlighted two partnerships, we had a good chat with the batting group as after our first innings we had to address some issues.
"We were looking for some sort of response and I do believe we would have run them very close, if not got the victory."
