Worcestershire Rapids duo Brett D’Oliveira and Pat Brown are the joint second-highest wicket-takers in the 2023 Vitality Blast after the opening block of matches.
Only Lancashire’s Luke Wood, part of the Rapids side which won the 2018 title, has taken more wickets with eight from four games.
Rapids Captain D’Oliveira has been a model of consistency with figures of 3-28 (Northamptonshire Steelbacks), 2-39 (Yorkshire Vikings) and 2-19 (Leicestershire Foxes).
It has given him an overall analysis of 10-0-86-7.
Pace bowler Brown also has seven wickets to his name after performances of 1-36, 3-28 and 3-25 against the Steelbacks, Vikings and Foxes, respectively.
D’Oliveira and Brown are level on seven victims apiece, with Danny Briggs (Birmingham), Dan Douthwaite (Glamorgan) and Nathan Sowter (Durham).
On the batting front, Rapids new signing Adam Hose is the seventh-highest run scorer in the Blast with 118 off 61 balls with a strike rate of 147.50.
He hit 61 against the Steelbacks and 44 versus the Vikings, the highest score in both of the Rapids innings.
Wayne Madsen of Derbyshire leads the way with 168 runs, including three half centuries.
