Karan Anand delivered an inspired spell of 4 of 20 and hit a typically aggressive 63 not out from just 26 balls as FPs defeated a much under strength Inverurie by 8 wickets, taking just 12 overs to knock off the 126 run target.

Inverurie had started well and having been 82 for 2 at drinks, they crubmbled to 125 all out just 12 overs later, Anand taking his 4 wickets for 2 in 12 balls.
