Accrington skipper Jimmy Hayhurst turned in a match winning performance to see his side to a 34 run win over East Lancs at Thorneyholme Road in Group A. Man of the match Hayhurst smashed 33 from just 18 balls, including two sixes and two fours, and he then took 2-19, including the wicket of East Lancs professional Ockert Erasmus (25) as the visitors were restricted to 130-7 in reply to Accrington's 164-6. An opening stand of 62 between Simon Hanson (26) and professional Ashar Zaidi (39) provided the ideal platform for Hayhurst's late assault. A total of 35 extras, including 25 wides, also helped Accrington's cause. Hanson (2-25) removed openers Paul Kelly (0) and Minhaj Bhada (6) but John Turner added 27 to his 3-35 with the ball as East Lancs fought back. Adam Chester (19), David Turner (18) and Ben Westhead (17 not out) also chipped in.
