London:Warwickshire drew with Worcestershire at New Road to take another step closer to securing the English County championship.

Ben Trott hit 51 and Michael Powell 43 before Warwickshire skipper Nick Knight declared with his side on 254 for eight on Friday.

That meant Worcestershire needed 299 to win but they were never on top of the run chase - despite fine innings from Stephen Moore (83 not out) and Graeme Hick (56 not out) taking them to 156 for one.
