Waringstown moved a step closer to the Premier title after an emphatic 82-run win against Lisburn in their T20 refix at The Lawn.

The home side lost James McCollum first ball - dismissed by Boyd Rankin, and were in some trouble at 39 for 3 with wickets for David Simpson and Callum Atkinson.

However a fourth wicket stand of 79 between Andre Malan and Graham Hume put them firmly back in control, and they never relinquished their grip on the contest thereafter.

Malan top scored with 68 from 48 balls (9 fours, 1 six), while Hume's unbeaten 57 from 39 balls included 4 fours and 2 sixes.

Lee Nelson (18) had a breezy nine-ball cameo and a total of 174 for 6 looked daunting.

Lisburn were soon in tatters, as they crumbled to 50 for 8, with three wickets apiece for James Mitchell and Andre Malan.

Kyle McCallan conceded just 11 runs in his four overs spell, including a return catch from Boyd Rankin.

There was a bit of 'a dead cat bounce' as Josh Manley made 27 in a losing cause, but the margin of 82 runs reflected the difference in the top and bottom sides this year.
