The Norfolk Twenty20 champions and Carter Cup runners-up recorded a comfortable five-wicket win on their home ground against Anglians, who are also based at Sprowston.

Sprowston skipper Will Hampson won the toss and chose to field and Anglians were restricted to 30 for two from 15 overs.

Spinner Hampson brought himself on and kept the pressure on by taking four for 14 from eight overs. Ollie Ford resisted with a spirited 31 and Lewis Rayner added 22no to take Anglians to 123 for nine from their 40 overs.

Sprowston lost two early wickets, but brothers Tim (40) and Sam (36) Hales put them on course to seal a five-wicket victory with nine overs remaining.

The Broke Cup final was staged on the second pitch at Sprowston at the same time and Stow beat Terrington St Clement by six wickets.

Man-of-the-match Alex Ward claimed four for 33 as Terrington were bowled out for 96 in the 28th over, Jason Young top scoring with 26.

Stow lost early wickets but Tom High (35) and Glen Fossey (35no) helped them wrap up victory after just 16 overs.
