Leinster Lightning Bolts made it back-to-back wins as they eased to a seven wickets win against Munster Heat at The Mardyke.

Ireland Under 19 international Jordan Neill top-scored with the hosts with 34 (3 fours, 1 six), while Ryan Joyce hit 30 (4 fours) as Heat made a solid start.

However, from 50 for 1, they slid to 114 all out with a string of single figure scores.

Amish Sidhu (3-3), Dylan Lues (3-18), and Olly Riley (2-10) doing the bulk of the damage.

The chase was all about Balbriggan’s Chris De Freitas, who hit 13 fours and a maximum in an unbeaten 75 from just 65 balls to secure a bonus point win that sees the Dubliners top the table after two matches of the abbreviated six-match 2023 series.

The Emerging Knights made it two wins from two as they beat the Emerging Warriors relatively comfortably in the T20 contest at Stormont.

Batting first the North-West side were given a quick start by Liam Doherty’s 20 in 14 balls (2 fours, 2 sixes), and with Scott MacBeth making 32, they were well placed at 60 for 2 after 9 overs.

Unfortunately their innings fizzled out, ending with a whimper rather than a bang, managing to add just 59 in the last 11 overs.

CIYMS teenage duo Adam Kennedy (3-21) and Carson McCullough (2-25) helping to apply the brakes.

Ollie Metcalfe hit 7 fours in his 40 to get the chase off to a quick start, but two wickets for Charlie Downey (2-21) saw the hosts falter, losing three wickets for just four runs to be 68 for 4 at the halfway point.

That was as good as it got for the Warriors though, as Canadian U19 international Ben Calitz (30*) and Aditya Adey (22*) added an unbroken 52 in just 32 balls to seal the six-wicket win in the 16th over.
