The hosts of this men's T20I tri-series played their first matches today, winning both against their counterparts from Norway and Guernsey.

They took on Norway in the first match of the day, batting first after winning the toss. Openers Daniel Calle and Awais Ahmed were both dismissed cheaply - the latter for a first ball duck - but an 80 run third wicket partnership between Josh Trembearth-Moro and Yasir Ali got them back into the game.

The partnership ended when Ali was caught and bowled by Muhammad Sher Sahak for 44, whilst Trembearth-Moro reached 39 before he was out. Their knocks helped the home team post 129-5 from their 20 overs. They then kept Norway to 78-9 to win by 51 runs.

Worryingly for the hosts though, captain Christian Munoz-Mills had to retire hurt in their innings. He didn't field and missed Spain's second match later in the day against Guernsey with Yasir Ali standing in for him as captain.

Guernsey batted first after winning the toss, but some superb bowling from Spain, particularly Lorne Burns who took 5-11, the first five-wicket haul for Spain in T20Is, helped bowl Guernsey out for 78. Spain then had no trouble chasing down their target, scoring their runs in 12.2 overs to win by 8 wickets. Awais Ahmed top scored with 42 from 29 balls.

In-between those two matches, Norway took on Guernsey for the second time in this tri-series, batting first after they won the toss. An innings of 37 by captain Khizer Ahmed and 34 by Walid Ghauri helped them post 120-7 from their 20 overs.

Unlike yesterday when Guernsey struggled in their run chase, they had little trouble in this match. Tom Nightingale's unbeaten 46 led the way and he was ably assisted by 32 from captain Josh Butler as Guernsey won by 8 wickets with two overs to spare.

The final two matches of the tri-series will take place tomorrow. Spain will play in both matches, taking on Guernsey in the morning before ending the series by playing Norway.
