Home openers Charlotte Bascombe, the former Scotland international, and young Middlesex age group player Amu Surenkumar accumulated steadily in the face of a strong Gunns bowling attack and Bascombe reached her 50 shortly before victory was sealed in the 21st over.

"It's been a long but really enjoyable season and today showed how much the side has developed," she said.

"The bowling was top drawer and Miranda thoroughly deserved her five-wicket haul, but the support of the whole side in the field was so important and there's a true sense of a team here.

"It's a pleasure batting with Amu - this was a good bowling attack and she played so maturely throughout. There's such a lot to look forward to over the years to come."
