WORCESTERSHIRE Women’s Rapids player Flora Bertwhistle starred with the ball in their Vitality County T20 campaign.

The left-arm spinner was the second highest wicket-taker in Division Two this summer with 14 victims and topped the averages.

Bertwhistle's wickets cost just five runs apiece and she ended with an overall analysis of 21.4-3-70-14.

She had an economy rate of 3.23 and only Laura Ellison (15) picked up more wickets.

Rapids team-mate Jessica Humby was 10th with seasonal figures of 11-1-83-7.

Georgie Adcock finished as the competition’s third highest run-scorer.

In six innings she scored 152 at an average of 30.40.

Adcock, who took over as captain this summer, had a strike-rate of 113.43 and a highest score of 71 not out.

Rapids pathway manager-assistant coach Steve Magoffin said: “Both Flora and Georgie have been outstanding in the T20 this summer.

“With ball and bat respectively they have produced exceptionally good performances.”

The County ended their T20 campaign with an eight-wicket victory over Derbyshire at Himley.

Rapids claimed three victories and three defeats over the season plus a double wash-out for a total of 14 points.

Derbyshire were put into bat and restricted to 123-8 as Humby took 4-33, Bertwhistle 2-16 and Emily Arlott 2-25.

Sarah Glenn conceded only 14 runs in her four overs.

Adcock led by example in reply with 71no as victory was achieved with 3.2 overs to spare.

She faced just 50 balls, striking one six and 11 fours.

Adcock featured in stands of 58 with Rachel Howells (22) and 64 with Chloe Hill (16).

Rapids came close to winning the first game of the double-header at Himley but lost by five runs to Somerset.

Clare Boycott (3-10) and Bertwhistle (2-11) starred with the ball in Somerset's 131-6 after the visitors had been put in.

In reply, Rapids were in trouble at 40-4 but captain Adcock and Arlott (35) added 50 for the fifth wicket.

Adcock was out for 50 off 42 balls with one six and eight fours before Rapids needed 13 off the final over.

But Arlott was dismissed from the penultimate ball as they closed on 126-6.
