An exciting county T20 season culminated in a 3-way tie at the top of Division 1, with Sussex claiming the title on Net Run Rate ahead of Yorkshire and Kent.
We take a look at some of the numbers behind the season.
Tammy Beaumont – 104*: The season’s highest score in was posted by Tammy Beaumont – carrying her bat for 104 not out, as Kent posted a massive 146/0 against sorry Surrey, who were already relegated having clocked-up the lowest ever total in County T20 history in the previous round – bowled out by Middlesex for 25.
Danni Wyatt – 102: June 14th 2015 is a date Danni Wyatt will want to remember. Having hit 89 from 54 balls in Nottinghamshire’s first match against Middlesex; she then went on to smash her way to 102 against a Somerset attack which included England’s Anya Shrubsole. It wasn’t a faultless innings (she was dropped a couple of times) but it showed just what she is capable of; although amazingly, Notts actually lost both games.
Danni Wyatt – 287: Despite playing only 6 of 8 games due to England commitments, Wyatt managed to outscore all-comers with 2 fifties (against Middlesex and Surrey) in addition to her century against Somerset. Scoring 287 runs in the season, she also topped the averages list with 57.
Georgia Adams – 243: Sussex’s stylish opener hit 3 fifties (against Somerset, Surrey and Notts) on her way to a total of 243 – over a quarter of Sussex’s season runs – at an average of 35.
Jenny Gunn 5/3: Nottinghamshire’s Jenny Gunn, who wouldn’t have even been playing had she not been ruled out of the Women’s Ashes Test earlier that week by a trapped nerve in her neck, single-handedly denied Kent the title as she hit 51* and then took 5/3 as Notts handed Kent their second defeat of the season in their penultimate match.
Jenny Gunn – 15: Thanks to her 5-for v Kent, Gunn topped the wickets table with 15 at an average of just 7.
Holly Colvin – 13: The retired England spinner is making a point of enjoying her cricket these days, which has been good news for Sussex and good news for the fans… but not quite such good news for the opposition batsmen! With best figures of 4/10 v Somerset, Colvin twirled her way to 13 wickets at an average of 11 – not bad for a player whose extensive work and charitable commitments mean she is barely able to train.
