Impressive Bears cruise to victory over Royals
The Warwickshire Bears claimed their 4th Friends Provident t20 victory of the tournament after a 9 wicket victory over the Worcestershire Royals at New Road.
Having been set a total of only 119 for victory the Bears made light work of the run chase with Jonathan Trott (72) scoring an impressive half century to help the Bears reach their target with just over 4 overs to spare.
Trott and Darren Maddy (44) built a match winning partnership of 100 after Neil Carter (1) was dismissed in the 3rd over by Alan Richardson.
Earlier, having won the toss the Royals got off to a disastrous start losing Sanath Jayasuriya (2), Moeen Ali (0) and Alexei Kervezee (4) inside the first two overs to leave the home side 10-3.
Although Phil Jacques (29) and Jack Manuel (31) offered some resistantís; the Royals total of 118-9 was never going to be enough.
