In reply, K&D cantered to a seven-wicket victory reaching 113 for three inside 20 overs despite Stuart Cope taking two wickets in an over with the score on 25.

However, Ghanekar (25) and Tom Smith (42 not out) put on a match-winning  65-run partnership for their third wicket.

Whilst David Jakeman added an unbeaten 19 in the one-sided affair.

Cope ending on 2-31 with Connor Shingler taking the other wicket fall with 1-17.
