Jack Berry made 87.

Wisbech were all out for 144 in the 19th over.

The win keeps Bourne on course for a T20 trophy treble. They hammered Uppingham by eight wickets on Monday in the semi-final of the Stamford Charity Cup - a game in which 16 year-old Evison hit an unbeaten 54 - and they play Uppinghgam again in the semi-final of the Stamford KO Shield next Monday (June 25).

Bourne were Jaidka Cup winners in 2016 and runners-up last year.
