Wicket was our secret weapon - Cumberland captain Pratt

Gary Pratt

Cumberland captain Gary Pratt has said the conditions at Workington were pivotal to their Minor Counties Trophy win against Cambridgeshire.

Pratt's side restricted the visitors to 199-6 from 50 overs and made the target with 21 balls to spare.

"Their lads got it in their head that it wasn't a good wicket," Pratt told BBC Radio Cumbria.

"There was nothing wrong with it, they're just not used to playing on that sort of track."

He added: "To restrict them to 200 we were always confident we were going to knock them off."

The reward for beating Cambridgeshire is a trip to Cornwall in the quarter-final stages.
