Ge­or­gia Adams hit the high­est score of the Rachael Hey­hoe Flint Tro­phy to pro­pel South­ern Vipers into the fi­nal with a 32-run tri­umph over Western Storm.

The Vipers cap­tain Adams fol­lowed up her 89 against Sun­ris­ers with a su­perb 154 not out, de­spite strug­gling with cramp in her calf for the fi­nal third of her in­nings.

Else­where, Alice Capsey posted a su­perb 73 not out to lead to a six-wicket tri­umph over

at Chelms­ford and leave their op­po­nents with­out a win in the Rachael Hey­hoe Flint Tro­phy.

The all-rounder’s en­er­getic in­nings cov­ered just 75 de­liv­er­ies, in­clud­ing nine fours, in a match­win­ning part­ner­ship of 114 with Aylish Cran­stone. It gave the Stars their se­cond vic­tory of the tour­na­ment. Capsey per­formed es­pe­cially well against spin, strik­ing 50 from 52 balls, while Cran­stone had reached 46 be­fore hol­ing out to Hay­ley Brown at point.

At Emer­ald Head­in­g­ley, Eve Jones hit 77 as chased down 218 to de­feat

the North Group lead­ers, by six wick­ets. Opener Jones com­bined with Marie Kelly (9) to con­trib­ute 123 runs in­side 26 overs and claim vic­tory with 3.2 overs to spare.
