Trescothick ton as Worcs beaten again

Worcestershire suffered a second defeat at the hands of Somerset in three days in their build-up to the new season.

A defeat in a two-day match at Taunton was followed by a seven-wicket reverse in a 40-over contest at New Road, with Somerset captain Marcus Trescothick leading his side home with an unbeaten 105.

Worcestershire captain Daryl Mitchell followed up his first innings half-century at Taunton Vale by again anchoring the innings with an unbeaten 93.

Mitchell carried his bat and shared a fourth wicket stand of 119 with James Cameron who made 62 before he was caught at slip off Peter Trego.

Despite the early loss of Moeen Ali and Vikram Solanki, Worcestersbire made what looked like being a competitive 224 for five.

But Trescothick and Trego attacked from the start and raced to a half-century stand from just five overs.

Trego, a former Worcestershire trallist, made 43 out of the first 53 from just 26 balls but Nick Compton then helped Trescothick add 67 for the third wicket.

Worcestershire, however, could not dislodge Trescothick, who reached his century with a six and steered Somerset home in partnership with the highly-rated Jos Buttler.
