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?

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Nick Stapleton was again the nemesis for Rush in their second meeting of the day, with the overseas players scoring an unbeaten 112 as Pembroke chased 200 to win by eight wickets with nine balls left. The Australian hit 13 fours and 5 sixes in his 59-ball 112 not out, sharing an unbroken stand of 192 in 99 balls with Zac McCabe, who made 73 not out (9 fours, 1 six). The result was tough on Rush's own professional Josh Doyle, whose 110 included 13 fours and 6 sixes - Stapleton's 3 for 28 the only bowler to escape severe punishment.
