Skipper Daryl Mitchell finished as Worcestershire Rapids highest scorer in the NatWest T20 Blast for the second successive season.

The 31-year-old surpassed his efforts of 2014 in amassing 412 runs from 14 innings from the opening game against Birmingham Bears at Edgbaston through to Friday's quarter-final against Hampshire.

Mitchell scored three half centuries and finished with an average of 34.33.

He has certainly reaped the benefits of moving to the top of the order since Moeen Ali became an England regular.

Tom Kohler-Cadmore was not far behind with 365 runs while Ross Whiteley (315) and Moeen (248) were the other main contributors.

On the bowing front Saeed Ajmal was the leading wicket-taker with 21 from 12 matches.

Spinner Brett D'Oliveira had the best economy rate, conceding only 6.50 runs per over with Mitchell (6.82) not far behind.
