Worcestershire completed their victory in this return match by an innings at 1.30 pm on the second day. The rain-affected encounter between the two teams at Northampton in May had ended in a draw. For the victors, Wilson took 11 wickets for 72 runs, including 8 for 28 in the Northamptonshire first innings. In that innings he obtained the last 6 wickets that fell for just 2 runs. There were 9 fours in Jobson's 62 scored in 100 minutes, and Wheldon's 54 contained no boundaries. For the visitors, who fielded a weakened team, Thompson top-scored with 27.
