An emotionally and physically drained Luke Fletcher believes honours are just about even after the opening day at New Road.

The seamer sent down 23 overs on the opening day, prizing out two scalps on a tough pitch to bowl on and contributing the run out of Brett D'Oliveira as Worcestershire ended the day on 305-7.

And after their afternoon fightback was met with lower order resistance from the hosts, Fletcher believes both sides had the upper hand at different stages on the opening day.
