Charlotte O’Brien was a hat-trick heroine as Hunts Under 15 Girls enjoyed a fine finish to their tour at Malvern last week.

O’Brien bagged three wickets in as many balls in a 24-run success against Cumbria as Hunts successfully defended a tally of 126-9.

That score featured 30 from Ellie Burgess before Amelia Roberts also claimed three wickets as Cumbria were dismissed for 102.

A smart 65 from Kaushicaa Vaseeharan helped Hunts beat Warwickshire by three runs in a tight opening game.

Their effort of 175-8 proved just enough as they dismissed their opponents for 172 off the penultimate ball of their innings. O’Brien (3-24), Roberts (2-16) and Grace Dowdeswell (2-21) were all among the wickets.
