WORCESTERSHIRE opening batsman Jake Libby has been voted into BBC Sport's County Championship Team of the Season. 

Libby was chosen by 31% of those who voted via the BBC Sport website and App during the past week.

It is recognition richly deserved for Libby who today scored his fourth century of the season against Yorkshire at Headingley in the season finale, in which Worcestershire confirmed their promotion to Division One thanks to gaining two bonus-points.

On that achievement, Libby said (after the game vs Yorkshire): "The boys are ecstatic. There has been change at the club but it has worked out really well.

"Richo (head coach Alan Richardson) has been fantastic this year and the boys have really enjoyed it.

"Two quarter-finals (in one-day cup and T20 Vitality Blast) and a promotion, that has been a really successful year."

His tally of 1153 runs is Libby’s highest-ever aggregate for a season and with it, he became only the seventh Worcestershire player to reach 1,000 runs in a season on two or more occasions since 2000.

Libby’s opening partner in the BBC team of 2023 is Durham’s Alex Lees and nine counties were represented.
