Henry took 5-36 as Northants were all out for 142 in their second innings, handing Worcestershire a 21-point win and putting them within a single point of county championship division two leaders Essex.

It's Henry's maiden five-wicket bag in English county cricket, although he has four previous five-wicket hauls in first-class cricket.

The 25-year-old Kiwi, who has played four Tests and 21 ODIs for the Black Caps, also picked up 3-52 off 17 overs in the first innings as Worcestershire bowled Northants out for 148.
