Former Ireland captain William Porterfield was a surprise inclusion in the CSNI ranks for their home clash with Lisburn, but he couldn't prevent the Wallace Park side clinching a six-wicket win.

The 37 year-old Porterfield was making his first appearance in an Irish club match since appearing for Rush back in 2007, signed as a short-term replacement as a sub-professional.

He hit five boundaries in his 23 from 42 balls, sharing an opening stand of 35 with Luke Georgeson - who up until last week had been earmarked as his successor at the top of the Irish order.

Porterfield was dismissed by the ever-consistent David Simpson 2-30, but it was another former skipper Mark Berry, who did the real damage, claiming five wickets as CSNI collapsed.

Georgeson top scored with 54, while there were also 20s for Marc Ellison and Hunter.

A total of 171 looked under par but a wicket apiece for Matthew Foster, Ben Adair, Finn Lutton and Luke Georgeson reduced Lisburn to 56 for 4 in the 20th over.

Crucially though the prolific Faiz Fazal was still at the helm and he together with Glen Halliday forged a match winning unbroken fifth wicket stand of 128 in just over 25 overs to seal the points.

Fazal almost made it two hundreds in a row, but had to be content with an unbeaten 95 from 133 balls, which contained 10 fours and a six, while Halliday hit five boundaries in his 46 not out.

Early days for Lisburn, but they look to have added steel and depth to their line-up and will fear nobody on this form.
