Warwickshire secure title at Worcester
Warwickshire secured the 2012 County Championship title by beating local rivals Worcestershire at New Road.
The Bears beat their opponents by an innings and 202 runs with a day to spare to secure the trophy for the first time since 2004 - with one game to go - ensuring next week's fixture with Nottinghamshire is redundant in the title battle.
Warwickshire lost out to Lancashire for the title on the final day of the championship last year and captain Jim Troughton reckons that painful experience spurred his side on to go one better this campaign.
He told Sky Sports: "It's fantastic. Last year, as much as that hurt, it's what pushed us this year.
"From that moment down at the Rose Bowl, when we didn't get those wickets and we felt completely gutted, we made it our responsibility to push on in the winter and make sure we came back and win it with a game to spare.
"It's amazing how it's happened exactly like that - it couldn't have been written any better. I'm absolutely over the moon."
