Points Tables

North Conference

The one match to escape the weather produced a major upset with Scotland beating Lancashire by 10 runs at Old Trafford. The contest was reduced to 22 overs per side and Ryan Watson's 41-ball 43 propelled the Scots towards a competitive 142. Their total grew in significance when John Blain took two wickets in an over - including Brad Hodge for a second-ball duck - to leave Lancashire on 7 for 2. Mal Loye and Steven Croft (44) attempted a recovery but the increasing run rate led to a collapse. Australian Ian Moran removed Loye and Luke Sutton before Majid Haq and former captain Craig Wright collected three each. It's the second time in four years Scotland have come out on top at Old Trafford, in 2003 they won in what was then Division Two of the National League. This is Scotland's first victory of the season and virtually ends Lancashire's hopes of making the semi-finals.

A washout was declared early at Northampton as Northamptonshire and Leicestershire shared the points.

South Conference

All three matches in the South fell victim to the weather with no play possible at The Oval, Swansea or Taunton. Surrey's point for their washout against Ireland moves them into a semi-final spot, ahead of Hampshire on net run-rate, while Kent stay top after a point against Somerset.
