Rovman Powell (42) cashed on in the end overs to take the Windies A score to 338 for 9. It was either everything or nothing for the Worcester bowlers as Dillon Pennington (9-67-5) and Ross Whiteley (9-58-4) bagged 5 and 4 wickets respectively.
A breezy 95 from opening batsman George Rhodes looked promising but other batsmen, namely Tom Fell (28), Jack Haynes (33) and Joshua Dell (46) failed to capitalise after getting starts.
