Flora Bertwhistle kept the momentum going as the visitors got bowling, striking two early blows and ending with a commendable 4-0-14-2.

Jess Beach (Humby) also contributed with 3-0-23-3, and Phoebe Brett with 4-0-14-2; both wreaking havoc with the ball as Huntingdonshire were bowled out for 72 in 17.3 overs.

In the contest, Georgina Macey's 38 off 51 was far from enough for Worcestershire, who found runs hard to come by.

She was sixth to be bowled out in the 19th over, however no other player managed to score more than 20, leaving Worcestershire with 101-6 in defeat.
