Bears returned to winning ways with a comfortable four-wicket victory over Yorkshire Vikings at Edgbaston.

The Vikings, who had won three of their first four games, were undone by spin, bowled out for 145 in 19.5 overs as the Bears’ three twirlers harvested a combined 10-0-61-7.

Joe Root (39, 27 balls) and Dawid Malan (38, 27 balls) lifted their side to a promising 77 for one but the rest folded against an attack led by Jake Lintott (three for 15) and Danny Briggs (three for 26).

The Bears then reached 151 for six with 11 balls to spare thanks to punchy contributions from Mousley (41, 29 balls) and Jake Bethell (32, 15 balls) and a wise one from Sam Hain who passed 4,000 career T20 runs on his way to an unbeaten 53 (40 balls).
