Harjit Mehat | cricket20

The Worcestershire Royals cruised to a simple 15 run victory over the Derbyshire Falcons in a low scoring affair at the County Ground in Derby.

Having recorded a below par total of 121-7, the Royals successfully restricted the Falcons to a total of just 106 to seal their second victory in the years Friends Life t20 tournament.

Faced with a run chase of just 122, the Falcons disappointed with the bat, collapsing to a total of just 65-7 before batsman Steffan Jones offered a faint chance of victory with a quick fire 21.

Chris Whelan led the way, picking up four wickets to help the Royals seal victory in commanding style despite setting the home side a below par run chase.

Having won the toss, Vikram Solanki (28), James, Cameron (17) and Ben Scott (17) over come a poor start to help the Royals reach a total which was somewhat surprisingly easy to defend.
