Birmingham Bears cemented their top-two spot in the Vitality Blast North Group after triumphing by 21 runs in the West Midlands derby with Worcestershire Rapids at New Road.

Bears were indebted to late hitting from Dan Mousley and Jacob Bethell for setting a challenging target.

Mousley’s unbeaten 49 was his T20 best this summer while Bethell’s 32 not out was his highest in the competition.
