Pietermaritzburg - A fine all-round display by Andrew Birch has helped the Warriors move top of the domestic One-Day Cup table after a comfortable two-wicket win over the Dolphins at The Oval in Pietermaritzburg on Sunday.

The Dolphins' innings was built around starts from Imraan Khan (41) and Vaughn van Jaarsveld (48) -- the pair sharing a 74-run third wicket partnership -- while Khaya Zondo (39) and Daryn Smit (44) were also in the mix.

Birch joined Jacobs with plenty of overs still remaining, and while the skipper occupied one end, it allowed his partner to bat with freedom and the Warriors eased to victory in the penultimate over to leapfrog both the hosts and the Cape Cobras into top spot.
