Riki Wessels made Vitality Blast history for Worcestershire Rapids during a dramatic finals day at Edgbaston.

Opening batsman Wessels has set a new record for the most T20 runs in a campaign by a Worcestershire player.

He surpassed the previous best tally of 412 by Daryl Mitchell amassed four years ago and achieved at a time after he had reverted back to the opener’s role in T20 cricket for the 2015 season.

Wessels was dismissed for 34 in the one run semi-final win against Notts Outlaws with his seasonal amount of runs standing on 430.

Wessels added another 31 in the heart-breaking last ball setback against Essex Eagles in the final to end with a grand total of 461 for 2019.

His tally included a top score of 91 against Yorkshire Vikings at Headingley.

Wessels also struck 74 versus Durham at Blackfinch New Road and 65 not out against Birmingham Bears at Edgbaston.
