    Ravi Rampaul is now the leading wicket-taker in the 2019 Vitality Blast T20 in England after grabbing 3/19 against Lancashire today.

    The Trinbagonian pacer’s 19th wicket of the season came when he had Steven Croft caught as Lancs chased 163 in 20 overs.

    The very next ball, he bowled Josh Bohannon for a golden duck.

    Rampaul was given the final over of the match to bowl with 16 required to win for Lancashire.

    Not only did he defend those runs but he bowled Liam Hurt for a 4-ball duck with the last ball of the game, wrapping up an 11-run win and a spot in the tournament’s quarter-finals.

    Rampaul now has 21 wickets in 12 innings at an economy rate of 6.71.

    Earlier, Derbyshire made 162/3 on the back of Wayne Madsen’s 69 from 39 balls – a knock that won him the Player of the Match award.
