Nantwich made short work of their run chase, needing less than 29 overs to reach their target with seven wickets in hand.

New signing Ali Chughtai (56) and Doyle (27) set the tone with a breezy opening stand of 62 and Luke Robinson struck a typically aggressive 51 before Jake Pearson (18no) finished off the job.
