Rhiannon Knowling-Davies belied her tender years to turn in a mature performance as Sonia Odedra's Nottinghamshire women secured a T20 tie with Yorkshire at Collingham.

Knowling-Davies, who led the county’s U13 Girls’ bowling charts two summers ago and won bowling awards in the U15 and U17 age groups last year, took 1-16 from four overs as both sides finished on 99 from their 20 overs.

The right-armer’s first three overs went for three, one and four runs respectively, with the second of those also seeing Hannah Buck depart for 10.

Knowling-Davies returned to bowl the crucial final over, preventing the Yorkshire batters from finding the boundary as the visitors scampered eight runs to complete the tie.

Amy Gauvrit, returning figures of 2-15 from four overs, also starred with the ball, removing Phoebe Turner (13) and Jessica Woolston (9).

Yorkshire’s final wicket to fall was that of captain Charlotte North, who perished to her Notts counterpart Odedra for 38 from 40 balls.

Earlier, Jodie Cook hit 31 from 29 balls to top-score in the Nottinghamshire innings, finding the ropes on three occasions and sharing a half-century stand with Hannah Hughes (11).

The pair helped the hosts to recover from 22-2, following the departures of Ella Porter (12) and Odedra (10).

Rebecca Widdowson’s unbeaten 14, meanwhile, helped to carry Notts to the brink of a three-figure score.

Later, in the Green and Golds’ final game of a truncated season, Yorkshire prevailed by 38 runs.

Knowling-Davies took 2-20, including the wicket of the dangerous Grace Hall (25), with the remaining wickets shared evenly between Rachael Potter, Amelia Kite, Elizabeth Grantham-Davies and Widdowson.

Responding to Yorkshire’s 94-7, a string of single-figure scores saw Nottinghamshire close on 56-9 from their 20 overs.
