IT proved to be a day to remember for one of Worcestershire's youngest cricket talents out at the ICC Women’s U19 T20 World Cup in South Africa.

Women's Rapids bowler Ellie Anderson took a five-for in the Super Six match with West Indies to help England into the semi-finals.

Anderson, who also plays for Alverly in the Worcestershire County League, finished with superb figures of 4-0-12-5, with her last four wickets coming in the space of just eight balls.

Her efforts played a big part in the West Indies being restricted to 84-8 in their 20 overs.

But it was another Rapids hot-shot who impressed with the bat in England's innings. Charis Pavely scored 29* off just 17 deliveries as England posted 179/4 from their 20 overs.

West Indies, in response, fell well short of the total and Anderson's five wicket haul saw England romp to victory by 95 runs.

The Worcestershire pair had already played in two of the three group matches in Potchefstroom, their first taste of Under-19 action for their country.

Pavely, who plays for Old Edwardians in the Worcestershire County League, featured in the opening two fixtures, scoring 45 and 13 against Zimbabwe and Pakistan, respectively.

Anderson picked up 1-4 from two overs against Zimbabwe and, after being rested against Pakistan, returned on Thursday with the first breakthrough in England’s 138-run win over Rwanda.

England then beat Ireland last Saturday and have now reached the semi-finals of the competition, where they will play Australia.
