London: Veteran spinners Shane Warne and Mushtaq Ahmed were in the wickets in the English county championship on Friday.

Warne, the world's leading Test match wicket-taker, took four for 28 as his Hampshire side handed out a 285-run hammering to Worcestershire at the Rose Bowl in Southampton.

Worcestershire were set an unlikely target of 473 to win, with only Graeme Hick's 69 showing some resistance as his side crumbled to 187 all out.

Championship leaders Sussex were struggling in their clash with Warwickshire at Hove despite former Pakistan Test star Mushtaq taking 7-111 as Warwickshire made 238 in their second innings.

That Sussex needing 504 to win. They were 160-1 at stumps heading into the final day.

Mushtaq's 11-wicket match haul took his season's tally to 69.
