Ruhan Pretorius, all smiles, wouldn't you be? - 167 not out (Robert Wills)
The Ruhan Pretorius show rolled on as he almost single-handedly beat Instonians with another incredible innings that keeps Woodvale top of the table. Neil Rock had crunched 13 fours and 5 sixes in his 72-ball 108, adding 140 in 22 overs for the fourth wicket with skipper Nikolai Smith (67*) but from 212 for 3 in the 36th over, Inst lost their way with Aditya Adey's five wickets keeping them to 282. It still looked more than enough as the home side slumped to 26 for 3 in the chase, but Pretorius produced another innings for the ages as he hit 14 fours and 10 sixes in his unbeaten 167 from 134 balls - the crucial stand 119 for the 5th wicket with James Rose (44). Too early or can Woodvale dare to dream?

North Down were convincing six-wicket winners against CSNI thanks to a fine all-round display at Comber. Kerwin Mungroo and Peter Davison had identical figures of 4-41 as CSNI were in early trouble at 51 for 5, but they rallied thanks to a 69-run stand between Harry Dyer (44) and Adam leckey (37).

Eglinton beat Ardmore by 8 wickets
Eglinton, 22 June.
Ardmore 117 (35.5 overs; Haydn Melly 34; Andy Millar 3-15, Liam Doherty 3-21, Lahiru Dilshan 2-28)
Eglinton 119/2 (17.2 overs; Adam Lamberton 56*, Andy Millar 31, Lahiru Dilshan 26*; Harry Zimmermann 2-45)
Successful appeal by Andy Millar (CricketEurope)
Eglinton ran out deserved and emphatic 8 wicket winners at home to an out of sorts Ardmore. The Bleachgreen side batted first, but were soon in trouble with a succession of their batters playing some very loose shots. Haydn Melly's patient 34 the best of their disappointing effort of 117. There were three wickets apiece for Andy Millar (3-15) and Liam Doherty (3-21), with two for Lahiru Dilshn (2-28). Liam Doherty went to the first ball of the reply, but that was a false dawn for the visitors, as the impressive Adam Lamberton hit 7 fours and 2 sixes in his unbeaten 56, sharing stands of 61 for the second wicket with Andy Millar (31), and an unbroken 58 for the second with Lahiru Dilshan (26*).

Donemana beat Brigade by 8 wickets
The Holm, 22 June.
Brigade 137 (31.5 overs; Adam McDaid 38, Andy Britton 35; Andy McBrine 3-36, William McBrine 2-24)
Donemana 141/2 (25.2 overs; Gary McClintock 58, Rumesh Buddhika 54; Cameron Nawn 2-20)
Leaders Donemana widened the gap between them and the chasing pack with an emphatic 8-wicket win over rivals Brigade in a game reduced to 33 overs by overnight rain at The Holm. The Beechgrove side were looking to Scott Macbeth to hit them out of early trouble, but his wicket at 48 for 2 saw a mini-collapse as they slumped to 48 for 5. Adam McDaid hit 4 sixes in a top-score of 38 as he and Andy Britton (35) doubled the score. Three wickets for Andy McBrine and two for William saw Brigade 137 all out. Such totals rarely win matches at the venue, and this was again the case as Donemana's opening pair of Gary McClintock and Rumesh Buddhika both made half centuries in an opening stand of 99 that all but settled the contest. Buddhika hit 5 sixes and 5 fours in his 48-ball 54, while McClintock's 58 included 6 fours and 3 sixes, falling just before the end - Cameron Nawn with the two consolation wickets. A real statement win for the Tyrone side that gives them breathing space approaching the midway point next week.

Jason Dunn celebrates his four wickets (CricketEurope)
Newbuildings moved into joint-second place in the table after they recorded an emphatic 9-wicket win at home to Killyclooney. A half century from Jamal Anwar and 21 from Kenzie Hall saw 'Clooney reach 88-2 before the wheels came off in sensational style and the last 8 wickets added just another 19 runs. Jason Dunn (4-12) and Ross Hunter (3-24) did the bulk of the damage after Trent McKeegan's early 2-30 and chasing just 108 to win, the hosts made no mistake from there. Skipper Gareth McKeegan warmed up for Sunday's senior cup semi-final duel against Brigade hitting 9 fours and 5 sixes in an unbeaten 76 and with Dunn chipping in with 23, Newbuildings posted a bloodless victory.
NW Premiership
Bready beat Coleraine by 104 runs
Magheramason, 22 June.

David Rankin celebrates his century (CricketEurope)
A 164-run stand between David Rankin and Kyle Magee helped Bready see off the challenge of Coleraine at Magheramason by 104 runs. Gavin Roulston's half century and 22 from Ryan Clarke got the hosts off to a solid start, before Rankin and Magee lit the touch paper in the second half of the innings. Magee hit an even-time 76 while Rankin remained unbeaten on 106; moving through the gears late on to reach his 'ton' heading into the final over. The former Warriors man smashed 7 fours and 7 sixes- 46 runs coming off the last 15 balls he received as Bready set a mammoth target of 284-3. To be fair, Coleraine went toe-to-toe early on with Marcus Poskitt making 69 and Craig Averill 35 in a century stand for the first wicket. After that however, Gareth Burns with 16* at Number 11 was best of the rest as the Bannsiders were bowled out for 180; Nathan McCombe (3-17), Rankin (3-25) and Jamie Mutch (2-11) the best of the nine bowlers used as Bready picket up full points.

St Johnston 52/1 (8.1 overs; Jack Macbeth 21*, Michael Rankin 16*)
A tough season so far for The Nedd shows little sign of getting any better as they lost by 9 wickets at the Boathole. Scott Devenney (3-15), Ryan McAuley (2-3), Subhan Sherzad (2-6) and David Anthony (2-14) combined to see the Ballykelly side dismissed for just 50 in this one- Jamie Mills' 15 the best of that before Jack Macbeth 21*, and Michael Rankin 16* rattled off the required runs in 8 overs to ensure a maximum points win that keeps them very much in control of their own promotion destiny.

Half century for Craig Doherty (CricketEurope)
Gayan Maneeshan's unbeaten century helped Fox Lodge chase down Glendermott's 221 to win by six wickets with nine balls to spare. The Foxies had been in real strife at 7 for 3 - two wickets for Todd Killen and a run out - but the Sri Lankan and Craig Doherty totally transformed the innings with a fourth wicket stand of 154 in 25 overs. Doherty hit seven sixes in a fine knock of 64 before being caught at long-on off a full toss.

Earlier, Ben Mills again top-scored for The Rectory side making a quickfire 79 from 65 deliveries that included 8 fours and 5 sixes, with Malinga Amarasinghe also clearing the ropes five times in his 57 not out.

The Red Caps bowling unit were all on the money with two wickets apiece for Rhys Logue, John Mooney, Ryan Gallagher and Usman Azhar. Mark Pollock too three wickets in the reply, and at 49 for 3 the door was slightly ajar. However, Nasir Nawaz and Kevin Gallagher settled any home side jitters with an unbroken 4th wicket partnership of 70 in 9 overs.

Sam Kincaid (28*), Puspender Singh (27) and David Cooke (25) fared best with the bat for the home side as they were all out for 147 and again it was the Kennedy boys who caused all the trouble with the ball.

With a return to Australia now imminent, 'GK' thumped 9 sixes and 7 fours in an unbeaten 92 and with James Cusack adding 28, the win turned out to be comfortable despite Kyle Moore's battling 3-27 for the Bee Gees.

A target of 180 looked tough, but the hosts prevailed, just.
CL T20 Cup
Group A: Balbriggan beat Dublin University by 4 wickets
Jack Harper Ground, 22 June.
Dublin University 177-4 (20 overs; Jamie Forbes 77, Gavin Hoey 58; Sebastian de Oliveira 3-20)
Balbriggan 178-6 (19.3 overs; Cameron Rowe 63, Ghanim Dara 43; Jack Atkinson 3-33)
Balbriggan made it through from Group A thanks to two wins against Dublin University. In the first game, a third wicket stand of 134 in 14 overs between Jamie Forbes and Gavin Hoey set the students up for a total of 177/4. Forbes 77 came from 55 balls and included 8 fours and 4 sixes, while Hoey's 58 saw him clear the ropes five times. An opening stand of 87 in 8.4 overs between Cameron Rowe (63 - 8 fours, 3 sixes) and Ghanim Dara (43) set Balbriggan on their way and although there were a few nerves as Jack Atkinson claimed three wickets, the Fingal side claimed the vital win that keeps them on course to defend their crown.
T20 World Cup
Group 1: Bangladesh lost to India by 50 runs
Antigua, 22 June.
India 196/5 (20 overs: Hardik Pandya 50*, Virat Kohli 37, Rishabh Pant 36, Shivam Dube 34; Tanzin Hasan 2-32, Rishad Hossain 2-43)
Bangladesh 146/8 (20 overs: Najmul Hossain 40, Tanzid Hasan 29, Rishad Hossain 24; Kuldeep Yadav 3-19, Jasprit Bumrah 2-13, Ashdeep Singh 2-30)
Runs for India's top three for the first time in the tournament but it required a late blitz from Hardik Pandya with 50* off 27 balls, (4x4, 3x6) to push them towards 200. India then restricted Bangladesh to 42 in the powerplay and to 67 at the half-way stage meaning that their opponents needed an unlikely 130 in their second ten. While Kuldeep Yadav had three wickets with his lift-arm wrist spin to set up that position it was Ashdeep and Bumrah who returned to apply the finishing touches to a comfortable win for the group leaders.
T20 World Cup
Group 2: West Indies beat USA by 9 wickets
Bridgetown, 21 June.
USA 128 (19.5 overs: Andries Gous 29, Nitish Kumar 20; Roston Chase 3-19, Andre Russell 3-31, Alzarri Joseph 2-31)
West Indies 130/1 (10.5 overs: Shai Hope 82*, Nicholas Pooran 27*)
After the early loss of Steven Taylor, Andries Gous and Nitish Kumar gave the USA hope of a substantial total with a partnership that saw them reach 48 at the end of the powerplay. But from there it was all a struggle as wickets fell steadily, and the final total provided no challenge to a West Indies side that raced to the win. In a display of power hitting Shai Hope cleared the ropes 8 times in his 39 ball innings with Pooran adding 3 of his own, to seal the win, just five balls after the drinks break. In a group where NRR will likely decide the second semi-final place, the Windies were hoping for a boost to their NRR, and that is exactly what they got, so much so that a win against South Africa overnight on Mon/Tue will see them into the semi-finals.
Munster Reds lost to North West Warriors by 13 runs (DLS)
Oak Hill, 4 June.
North West Warriors 136/5 (17.2 overs: Gavin Roulston 50, Stephen Doheny 36, Scott Macbeth 25*; Carson McCullough 4-25)
Munster Reds 39/4 (5 overs: Andy McBrine 2-12, Marcello Piedt 2-20) (Rain interrupted - NWW innings ended after 17.2 overs. Reds target 53 off 5 overs.)
Gavin Roulston (CricketEurope)
The Warriors moved off the bottom of the table with a 13-run (DLS) win against the Munster Reds at Oak Hill. The NW got off to a flier with Stephen Doheny and Gavin Roulston racing out of the blocks with an 85-run opening stand just past the midway point. The first of two rain breaks though stalled their momentum with Doheny falling for 36 off 22 balls (6 fours). CIYMS left-arm spinner Carson McCullough (4-25) also got Roulston, with the 17-year-old hitting 5 fours and one maximum in his 47-ball 50. Scott Macbeth cleared the ropes twice in a breezy unbeaten 25 to get the Warriors to 136 for 5 before the players were forced from the field with 16 balls of the innings remaining. Munster were set 53 in 5 overs, but after a few early shots, they froze up and never at any stage looked like being successful. Andy McBrine took advantage of the regs allowing him and Brigade professional Marcello Piedt to bowl two overs each, with picking up a brace of wickets to clinch welcome points. The teams meet again on Wednesday at the same venue in a 50-overs clash.
Northern Knights lost to Leinster Lightning by 1 run
Stormont, 4 June.
Leinster Lightning 142/9 (20 overs: Monil Patel 47; Cian Robertson 3-16, Ruhan Pretorius 3-25, Tyron Koen 1-19, Tom Mayes 1-29, Matthew Foster 1-33)
Northern Knights 141/8 (20 overs: Ruhan Pretorius 58, Cade Carmichael 27; Fionn Hand 3-22, Amish Sidhu 2-28)
Fionn Hand took three wickets (CricketEurope)
Leinster Lightning won a last-ball thriller as they beat Northern Knights by one run at Stormont. The Dubliners skipper Sam Harbinson held his nerve, although he looked to have blown it with a no-ball in a tense finale. However, the Knights tailenders couldn't get more than a run-a-ball from the final four deliveries. There were two moments that were to prove pivotal - a stunning boundary stop by Tim Tector that saved two from the final ball of the last over, and a super catch above his head on the ropes by Chris De Freitas to get rid of the dangerous Tyron Koen. Fionn Hand (3-22) bowled an exceptional penultimate over, while Amish Sidhu (2-28) also did well in the closing stages. Ruhan Pretorius looked to be winning it for the Knights with a fine 58 from 46 balls (7 fours, 1 six), but he played on off Dylan Lues and that opened the door. Earlier, Monil Patel took advantage of a late call-up to top score with 47 in Lightning's total of 142 for 9 - three wickets for Cian Robertson and Pretorius. The win all but clinches the T20 Trophy for Leinster, who now just need to win one of their three remaining games when the tournament resumes in August.
Northern Knights v Munster Reds - no result
Stormont, 28 May.
Northern Knights 128/7 (17.5 overs; Jake Egan 74*, Nicolaj Laegsgaard Damgaard 3-16. Liam McCarthy 2-12)
Munster Reds
Jake Egan (CricketEurope)
Jake Egan lit up a gloomy Stormont with an explosive batting display for the Northern Knights in their T20 clash with Munster Reds. The 20 year-old Irish passport holding Australian ploughed a lonely furrow with an unbeaten 74 out of his side's 128 for 7 in 17.5 overs before the weather won the day. Liam McCarthy (2-12) dismissed Morgan Topping from just the second ball of the day and when Josh Manley dismissed Knights skipper James McCollum, the hosts were in real trouble at 11 for 2 in the 4th over. Danish overseas all-rounder Nicolaj Laegsgaard Damgaard (3-16) then caused further troubles as he snared Cade Carmichael, Ruhan Pretorius and Ben Calitz in quick succession to leave the hosts floundering on 48 for 5. Egan though thumped 5 fours and sixes in his unbeaten 74 from just 48 balls to lead the recovery before the game was abandoned, The sides will try again today at the same venue to play their 50 overs cup clash.
North West Warriors v Leinster Lightning - no result

Match abandoned with a toss
Leinster Lightning beat Munster Reds by 6 wickets
Pembroke, 16 May.
Munster Reds 159/8 (20 overs: Ben Calitz 54*, Jordan Neill 33, Nicolaj Damgaard 27; Dylan Lues 3-24, Sam Harbinson 2-11)
Leinster Lightning 164/4 (18.3 overs: Tim Tector 65, Chris De Freitas 31*; Josh Manley 3-34)
Tim Tector was named Man of the Match (CricketEurope)
Leinster Lightning extended their lead at the top of the T20 table with a 6-wicket win over Munster. The Reds had been reduced to 45 for 4 batting first with wickets for Dylan Lues (3-24) and Sam Harbinson (2-11). They recovered thanks to Jordan Neill's 33 and an unbeaten 54 from 41 balls (6 fours, 2 sixes) to post 159 for 8. It wasn't enough as Tim Tector made a Man of the Match 65 (7 fours, 2 sixes) adding 65 for the second wicket with Chris De Freitas (31). Josh Manley (3-34) took two wickets in two balls to give Lightning a slight wobble with 26 needed off 21 balls. Seamus Lynch hit the hat-trick ball for 6 - one of four times the wicketkeeper cleared the ropes in a 9-ball 28 not out as they clinched victory with nine balls left. Lightning are back in action next week when they travel to Tyrone to take on the Warriors in back-to-back games.
Northern Knights lost to North West Warriors by 5 wickets
Stormont, 8 May.
Northern Knights 149/5 (20 overs: James McCollum 61*, Ruhan Pretorius 38*, Cade Carmichael 20, Jake Egan 17; Shane Getkate 2-22, Scott Macbeth 1-13, Andy McBrine 1-29, Ryan Macbeth 1-33)
North West Warriors 152/5 (19.5 overs: Cameron Melly 37*, Jared Wilson 27, Kian Hilton 25, Scott Macbeth 18; Matthew Humphreys 2-26, Matthew Foster 2-33, Tyron Koen 1-36
Cameron Melly scored the 14 needed off the final over to finish unbeaten on 37 from 16 balls (CricketEurope)
Toss: North West Warriors have won the Toss and put the Knights in to bat. The Warriors are winless after their three festival games last week while the Knights will hope to add to their two wins against today's opponents and the Munster Reds. Ross Adair to face Ryan Macbeth: dot, wide, Wicket! Great start for Macbeth as Adair has his middle stump knocked back. A wicket for skipper Andy McBrine as Egan holes out off the final delivery of his first over. Knights 59/2 at the half way stage not finding it easy on a pitch with quite a bit on offer to the bowlers, not surprising really given the weather in recent weeks. Third wicket falls when Cade Carmichael carves a 'wide' from Getkate to the sweeper on the cover boundary and a second in the over as Rock backs away and the faintest of touches by the ball on the off stump is just enough for the bails to fall. Left handed Ben Calitz backs away, tries to cut Scott Macbeth off the stumps, and is bowled. McCollum brings up a vital fifty off 53 (5x4), and there is just time for a spectacular cameo from Ruhan Pretorius who blasts 38* off 17 balls (4x4, 2x6) to set the Warriors a target of 150. Doheny gone, 4 off 14, a catch to wide third man off Matty Foster and a wicket for Tyron Koen in his first over as Roulston leaves his leg stump exposed. Slow going for the Warriors who are 44/2 at the half way stage 10 an over required in the second ten plus a few more. Jared Wilson ticking along goes for the reverse sweep of Humphreys and is bowled. Scott Macbeth launches Koen for consecutive maximums, 15 off the over. More of the same required. Brain fade, and Macbeth is bowled by Humphreys, like Wilson missing a reverse sweep! Hilton caught by the cover boundary sweeper, a second wicket for Foster, Getkate and Melly with it all to do. And they've somehow got it down to 14 required off the final over bowled by Tyron Koen. Here we go - 2, 2, 4, 4, 4 All over with a ball to spare - the Warriors have scored 108 off the second 10 overs to snatch it. Cameron Melly with 37 off 16 the hero in the end.
North West Warriors lost to Munster Reds by 20 runs
Pembroke, Dublin, 3 May.
Munster Reds 57/3 (5 overs: Curtis Campher 20, Tyrone Kane 16, PJ Moor 12, Gareth Delany 8*; Graham Hume 1-15, Craig Young 0-28, Ryan Macbeth 1-14)
North West Warriors 37/7 (5 overs: Curtis Campher 4-15, Josh Manley 3-12)
Curtis Campher of Munster Reds (CricketEurope)
After the long delay Munster Reds were asked to bat by the Warriors in what had become a five over game. Helter skelter stuff as Munster made 57 for 3 with cameos from Curtis Campher (20), Tyrone Kane (16), PJ Moor (12) and Gareth Delany (8*). Craig Young's two overs went for 28, while Hume's brace cost 14 - the same as Ryan Macbeth's solitary over. Only needing three bowlers, you feel the Warriors missed a trick by dropping opener Liam Doherty. They promoted Jared Wilson but he went second ball, one of four wickets for Curtis Campher (4-15), while Josh Manley took 3 for 12 as the NW never threatened at any stage - ending on 37 for 7. A terrible three days for Boyd Rankin's side and plenty to ponder as they make the journey up the motorway. For Jeremy Bray's Munster Reds, welcome points and possible something to build upon.
Leinster Lightning beat Northern Knights by 5 wickets
Pembroke, Dublin, 3 May.
Northern Knights 191/9 (20 overs: Cade Carmichael 74*, Neil Rock 35, Mark Adair 22; Barry McCarthy 3-43, Fionn Hand 2-48)
Leinster Lightning 192/5 (17.1 overs: Tim Tector 69, Lorcan Tucker 48, Andy Balbirnie 38; Tom Mayes 3-38)
Tim Tector (CricketEurope)
Knights put into bat by Lightning and they lose Ross Adair first ball as he drives McCarthy to Harry Tector at mid-off. McCarty has his second as Stirling edges drive to Lorcan Tucker - big wicket. Champagne moment as James McCollum is brilliant caught by a diving Reuben Wilson at third man. Full length running to his right. Cade Carmichael going well and Neil Rock has been positive thus far. Cade Carmichael reached his 50 runs in 31 balls, (5x4, 3x6). Reuben Wilson breaks the stand on 84 as Rock departs. Mark Adair continuing where he left off yesterday as he makes a dent in Barry McCarthy's figures. But 'Sparky's' fun ends as George Dockrell gets him second ball. Good total of 191 with excellent unbeaten 74 from Carmichael. Strong Lightning batting line-up though - will be a test for them. They are passing the test with flying colours so far as Andy Balbirnie and Tim Tector take the opening stand to 67 in 6 overs of the powerplay. Tom Mayes gets much needed breakthrough as Balbirnie caught in the deep by Ross Adair. Matthew Humphreys is welcomed into the attack by back-to-back sixes from Tim Tector - 18 off the over. 100 up in the 9th over as Lorcan Tucker thumps one over the wall. Lightning cruising. Tim Tector the star so far - excellent knock. Finally ended on 69 by Mark Adair - 36 balls with 6 fours and 5 sixes. Two wickets in an over for Tom Mayes (3-38) as he accounts for Tucker and Harbinson. Lightning trying hard to get the bonus point but looks as if they will just fall short of that aim. Five wickets win by the hosts and fully deserved. Made light work of a tough target and cruised to the win with 17 balls to spare.
Munster Reds lost to Northern Knights by 99 runs
Pembroke, Dublin, 2 May.
Northern Knights 224/5 (20 overs; Paul Stirling 76, Mark Adair 44*, James McCollum 40)
Munster Reds 125 (17 overs; John McNally 48, Josh Manley 24: Matthew Foster 3-21, Tom Mayes 3-34, Mark Adair 2-13)
The Munster attack put to the sword as Knights rack up 224 for 5 - the fifth highest total in the T20 Trophy. Paul Stirling top-scored with 76 from 49 balls (8 fours, 4 sixes) adding 90 in 11 overs with James McCollum (40). Skipper Mark Adair provided the late fireworks with an unbeaten 44 from just 11 balls - four of his six sixes coming off the first four balls of the 19th over bowled by Liam McCarthy. Chase starts badly with Moor, Kruger, and Campher all out in first five overs. And gets even worse as four more wickets fall by the midway point. A mauling. Bit of pride restored in an 8th wicket stand of 67 between John McNally and Josh Manley but too little, too late. Final margin of victory is 99 runs for the defendung champions.
Leinster Lightning beat North West Warriors by 8 wickets
Pembroke, Dublin, 2 May.
North West Warriors 148/6 (20 overs; Jared Wilson 39, Scott Macbeth 21*, Liam Doherty 21: George Dockrell 3-21)
Leinster Lightning 149/2 (12.5 overs: Andrew Balbirnie 81*, Lorcan Tucker 44)
Andrew Balbirnie's powerful unbeaten 81 led Leinster Lightning to another bonus point win, as they chased 148 to beat NW Warriors by seven wickets inside 13 overs. Any hopes that the NW had after Graham Hume dismissed Tim Tector in the first over of the reply quickly evaporated as Balbirnie and fellow international Lorcan Tucker put the beleaguered attack to the sword. The pair know their home conditions at Sydney Parade so well and had combined to share a second wicket stand of 113 in just 10.2 overs to make light of their target. Balbirnie hit seven fours and cleared the wall/ropes six times in his 44-ball knock, while Tucker's 44 from 25 balls included 4 fours and three maximums.Tucker was dismissed with 25 needed but it was over nine balls later as Harry Tector (12*) and Balbirnie wasted no time in securing the additional point.It had all looked so different as Jared Wilson's whirlwind 39 from 17 deliveries (4 fours, 3 sixes), together with 21 from Liam Doherty had seen Boyd Rankin's side race to 69 for 1 in the powerplay. Lightning skipper George Dockrell dismissed Wilson with his first ball on his way to 3 for 21 as he and Amish Sidhu (1-16) applied the brakes. Scott Macbeth (21*) added late runs, but a final total of 148 for 6 proved woefully inadequate as the Warriors attack was ruthlessly torn apart. The Warriors and Munster Reds play in the morning match on Friday, both hoping to get their first points after two bitterly disappointing days.
Northern Knights beat North West Warriors by 7 wickets
Pembroke, Dublin, 1 May.
North West Warriors 119 (19.2 overs; Scott Macbeth 37, Kian Hilton 22; Tom Mayes 4-28, Matthew Humphries 2-30)
Northern Knights 120/3 (14.1 overs; Paul Stirling 59)
Poor start by the Warriors who lose three wickets in the powerplay. Stephen Doheny, Liam Doherty, Jared Wilson all gone. And it gets worse as Shane Getkate edges Humphries behind. Tom Mayes and ruhan Pretorius with the earlier wickets. Debutant Kian Hilton and Andy McBrine in the middle attempting a salvage operation. 51/4 at the midway point. Second wicket for Humphries as he bowls Kian Hilton for decent 22 - went back to quicker one. McBrine gone for 14, but Scott Macbeth doing well and he has raced to 36. Kiss of death as he hits Foster to deep midwicket where Egan takes good catch. Mark Adair full toss traps Hume lbw, then Tom Mayes has Young and McKeegan caught in the deep to end with four wickets. A total of 119 looks weak. Fast start by Knights checked by Craig Young who has Ross Adair caught by Getkate. Paul Stirling finding it all too easy and he has strolled to 42 not out approaching half-way. Knights on course for a bonus point win. James McCollum lbw to Trent McKeegan but it's all very low key. 50 for Stirling - 35 balls with 4 fours and 4 sixes. Cade Carmichael and Neil Rock both clear the boundary to ensure the bonus point win.
