Sept. 6 (Bloomberg) -- Warwickshire routed Worcestershire by an innings and 202 runs to win its first English county cricket championship since 2004.

Worcestershire trailed by 311 runs when it resumed play on day three at New Road on 100-2. The home side was then dismissed for 209, with Alan Richardson the last man out shortly after lunch.

Chris Wright took 4-65 for Warwickshire, with Keith Barker claiming three wickets. Moeen Ali top-scored for Worcestershire with 72 not out.

Wright and Barker took five wickets each as Worcestershire, the division’s last-placed club, was bowled out for 60 in its first innings. Varun Chopra then scored 195 as Warwickshire reached 471-8 and declared before tea yesterday.

The victory completed a two-year turnaround for Warwickshire, which just avoided relegation in 2010 and finished second to Lancashire last season.
