Michael Burgess hit an unbeaten 78 as part of a 52-run ninth-wicket stand with Olly Hannon-Dalby as Warwickshire sealed a two-wicket win over Northamptonshire at Edgbaston.

The home side overcame a top-order implosion caused by a hat-trick by Ben Sanderson (five for 42) to chase down an artificially created target of 176 in 60 overs.

They lurched to 24 for five following Sanderson’s hat-trick, but sixth-wicket pair Burgess (78 not out from 128 balls) and Ed Barnard (41, 71) added 70 and Burgess batted with skill and composure to see his side home in an unbroken ninth-wicket stand with Hannon-Dalby.
