The week began with several first round matches as Mad Marrocas (189-4) saw off Evans Music (99-6) and guest side Stokey Scoundars (76-0) eased past NMCC (73-7) thanks to an unbeaten 36 from Stan Greenleaf.

Sunny Sanger was the hero for L&Q as they saw off MUFG, hitting an unbeaten 48 as his side chased down 111 in 12.3 overs, while Andrew James' superb 72 couldn't stop Sports Interactive being comfortably beaten by Phoenix All Stars.

Bansko Bears kicked off the second round with a comfortable win over Regents, hitting 150-5 with Olly Meikle (50) top scoring.

Som Chottekalapanda, Arun Devanga and Chetan Kushalappa all smashed 50s as The Royal Strikers reached 203-3 against Pacific, who despite a half century from Joh Deighan only finished on 144-2.

Wapping, unbeaten this season, put on a sensational performance against Broadway as Dudley Spiers and Chris Monger both hit half centuries.

They finished on 204-3 before Bobby Watson (18-5) spearheaded a ruthless fielding performance from the Dolphins as they bowled Broadway out for just 43.

Victoria Lounge saw off Old Fallopians, hitting a formidable 187-5 with James Neal (51), Tom Stevens (35) and Stefan Phillipson (32) all chipping in.

The Fallopians made a decent effort in their chase but fell 20 runs short on 167-3.
