Wayne Parnell has become only the second Worcestershire player in the past decade to end a List A campaign with 20 or more wickets.

The South African all-rounder sparkled with the ball for the Rapids in the Royal London One-Day Cup.

Twenty-nine-year-old Parnell finished with 22 victims in the 50 over competition from just nine games at an average of 18.86.

He is currently the third highest wicket-taker this summer in the competition with just the final between Hampshire and Somerset left to be played.

Parnell’s performances included 5-24 versus Notts Outlaws – his best List A figures in England – and 5-25 against Yorkshire Vikings – both at Blackfinch New Road.

Jack Shantry had taken 20 wickets in 12 matches in 2012 in what was then the Clydesdale Bank 40 over competition.

Prior to that Kabir Ali ended the 2007 season with 29 wickets but they spanned 15 matches and two competitions in the Pro40 League – won by Worcestershire that year – and the Friends Provident Trophy.

Charlie Morris (11) was the other main wicket-taker in the 2019 One-Day Cup while Daryl Mitchell had the best economy rate – 5.22 – of the regular bowlers.

On the batting front, Riki Wessels finished just four runs behind Hamish Rutherford (317) at an average of 34.77 and a strike rate of 137.88.

Ross Whiteley (290), Ben Cox (238) and Tom Fell (220) were the other main run getters for the Rapids.
