CSNI ran out comfortable winners against Instonians while defending champions Waringstown got their competition back on track with a 43-run win against Armagh.

Shane Getkate's 32 was the only highlight of a disappointing Instonians total of exactly 100 at Stormont, with two wickets apiece for Ben Adair, Andre Malan, Aaron Wright, and Matthew Foster.

Andre Malan and James Kennedy went cheaply, but a third wicket stand of 56 between Mark Ellison and Marcus Topping saw CSNI win by 8 wickets with ten balls remaining.

Ellison struck 5 fours and a six in his 44 from 47 balls, while Topping stroked 4 boundaries in his unbeaten 35.

At The Lawn, Waringstown got their defence back on track with a 43-run win over Armagh.

A solid batting display saw the top four all make at least 30, with Lee Nelson top scoring with 40. James McCollum (35*), Adam Dennison (31) and James Hall (30) also among the runs.

Nelson then took 3 for 8 to stunt the Armagh reply, and it took a hard-hit 61 by Armagh professional Shadley van Schalkwyck from 46 balls (4 fours, 4 sixes) to get the Mall side up to 100.

CSNI lead the group with full points from their two matches, followed by Instonians and Waringstown with one win each.
