The trial related to an incident in the early hours of April 1, 2017, when Hepburn was accused of raping his victim, who had already had consensual sex with his then team-mate, Joe Clarke, after getting into her bed while she was sleeping.

A jury found the former Worcestershire CCC all-rounder guilty of oral rape, but cleared him of a further count of rape relating to the same victim.

The judge Jim Tindal then cleared to Alex Hepburn that there is only one sentence and it is inevitable for him now to go to jail.

Social media conversations which prosecutors claimed may have been "scores" from a previous sexual conquest competition were also kept from the jury panel. "Want 80 by the end of Worcs".

The woman, who can't be recognized, said she had her eyes shut and occupied with 20 minutes of sexual action with the Australian-born cricketer in a faintly lit room before "timing" his identity when he talked.

The complainant, who can not be identified, told the court she was left shocked and distressed after opening her eyes and realising she was having sex with Hepburn and not Clarke, who was asleep elsewhere in the flat.

The messages - recovered by police from mobile phone records - also included a reference to a "Tinder bird" which dismissed her as "not great" but added "a stat's a stat hahaha". Clarke was in the bathroom when Hepburn had attacked the woman.

On Wednesday, Hepburn admitted he had sent "disgusting, awful and embarrassing" WhatsApp messages while setting the rules of a sexual conquest competition. He will be sentenced at the Herford crown court on April 30.

Prosecutors said Hepburn had been "fired up" by his desire to win the competition.

They would rate their sexual encounters with girls who were known as "freshies" or "reheats", depending on if they had slept with them before. "There is only one sentence that can properly be handed down in this case, and a custodial sentence is inevitable", the judge said.

Worcestershire County Cricket Club (WCCC) said it was "appalled" by the details in the case, while the the Professional Cricketers' Association (PCA) said the case served as a "stark reminder" of the standards it expects.
