​In a reduced overs match Stamford Bridge were kept to 110-8 in 30 overs with Brandon Faber (48) top scoring and Jack Young (3-22) being the pick of the Castleford attack along with David Wainwright (2-17) and Eddie Morrison (2-24).

Castleford had no problems reaching their target and were almost brought home by opening pair as Calum Rowe (69no) and Brayden Clark (44) put on 105 for the first wicket.

The victory took Castleford to 100 points for the season and they are level now with York, although their rivals do have a game in hand.

There was disappointment, however, for Castleford a day later when they missed out on the Premier League T20 Blast final.

Up against Driffield Town in the semis, they lost by 10 wickets after being restricted to 126-6. Liam Hyde (45) top scored with Rowe hitting 28 and Connor Hyde 23.
