Batting first, Northern Knight got to a total of 276 before being bowled out in the 50th over. The top 3 including Paul Stirling, James McCollum and Jeremy Lawlor all failed to put on a show. It was the partnership in middle order by Harry Tector and Luke Georgeson that gave wings to the Knights. Ruhan Pretorius played very well for his 42 off 39 balls. At the back of these knocks, Northern Knights reached a comfortable total of 276 before being bowled out.
