Neyland (78 for 3) beat Herbrandston (75 all out) by 7 wicket

Neyland cruised into the next round against a Herbrandston side which never gave up but could never build any partnerships to post a total that would trouble the home side.

Herbie could only muster eight runs in their first six overs and although Leigh Marchant (12) and Dean John (17) got a few on the board they could only manage 75 all out – and key bowler Paul Nicholas suffered a hamstring pull and was run out to end the innings on a low note.

Andrew Miller (3 for 25) was again the pick of the Neyland bowlers alongside opener Nathan Banner, who took a wicket and conceded only five runs in his six overs at the outset. Patrick Hannon (2 for 24), Scott Jones (1 for 18) and Brad McDermott-Jenkins (1 for 5) were the other wicket-takes for the home side.

Neyland lost Nick Koomen early to an excellent slip catch by Leigh Walters off Jack Wilson but then Patrick Bellerby (26 not out) and Henry Durrant (24, including five fours) were assisted by 18 extras so that Neyland won in the 15th over despite the efforts of Kristan Bennett (1 for 8) and Robert Hood (1 for 10) in the Herbie bowling attack.
