Notts’ Steven Mullaney took 1-30 off 10 overs as his England Lions side clinched a place in Monday’s tri-series final with victory over the West Indies A at Northampton.

The all-rounder and skipper won the toss and elected to bowl first and his teammates made good use of that decision by dismissing the tourists for 162 in 44.3 overs.

Left-armer Reece Topley (4-16) did much of the early damage to reduce the West Indies to 3-30 before captain Reece Thomas (45) did his best to retrieve the situation.

However, he was one of four victims for spinner Liam Dawson (4-21) after Mullaney had picked up the wicket of number four Sunil Ambris (27).

In reply, the Lions coasted home in just 25 overs on the back of an unbeaten stand of 120 between Tom Kohler-Cadmore (80 not out) and Sam Hain (48 not out).

Kohler-Cadmore hit eight fours and two sixes from 70 balls and Hain four fours in his 56 deliveries after Nick Gubbins (27) had been run out.
