Brierley said it was a game that had to be won the hard way and praised Whittaker for his role in the victory.

"He batted with so much class and timing and allowed me to went counter attack," said Brierley.

"After we put on 80 together Joe Barnes batted so well with James Kemp and won us the game.

"Needing eight an over off the last 22 did seem a lot to ask, but in the end it looked comfortable."
