The 20-year-old confirmed his status as a top bowler in the shortest form of the game by taking three wickets in a single over on his way to figures of 4-21 in the semi-final win over Lancashire.

And then he conceded just 15 runs in four overs to help set up a five-wicket win in the final over the fancied Sussex side.

Brown, who has become renowned for skilfully delivering a rich variety of slower balls, finished the T20 season with 31 wickets, six more than any other bowler, at an economy rate of under eight runs an over.
