Worcestershire made it two wins out of two against Warwickshire after winning the second match at Kidderminster by six wickets.
Warwickshire chose to bat first and in their 20 overs posted 161-6, with Sam Hain unbeaten on 68 off 47 balls, with 5 fours and 2 sixes, and Laurie Evans getting 43. Naqaash Tahir (2-14 off 4 overs), Chris Russell (2-26 off 4 overs) and Brett D’Oliveira (1-15 off 2 overs) were the three wicket takers for Worcestershire.
Despite Neil Pinner’s 28 and Alexei Kervezee’s 40 off 32 balls it looked as if Worcestershire would fall short of their target, with 44 runs required from 18 balls, but Michael Johnson (35* off 21 balls, with 4 fours and 1 six) and Tom Kohler-Cadmore (25* off 13 balls) had other ideas as Worcestershire, remarkably, won the match with one ball remaining, as they ended on 162-4 off 19.5 overs.
