In front of a sell-out crowd at The Oval, Hollioake rescued his side from 50 for 5 with a thumping 45 not out from 29 balls, before picking up 3 for 31 with his wily assortment of knuckle balls. Worcestershire, who on Saturday reached the final of the C&G Trophy, were unable to mount a successful chase, and fell 14 runs short of Surrey's 145 for 7, despite a useful 33 from Vikram Solanki.
Last year's finalists, Warwickshire, were unable to make the showcase for two years running, as they were seen off by the competition's dark horses, Glamorgan, who recovered from the shock of losing both openers for ducks, to cruise to a five-wicket win at Cardiff.
Set 159 to win, Glamorgan were in a perilous position at 2 for 2, when David Hemp and Matthew Elliott salvaged the situation with a 118-run stand. Hemp top-scored with 74 from 52 balls, to trump Brad Hogg, who top-scored for Warwickshire with a 51-ball 54. Darren Thomas, whose first two deliveries were slotted for six by Neil Carter, was the pick of the bowlers with 3 for 32.
The biggest mismatch of the day came down at the Rose Bowl, where Hampshire were routed by nine wickets by Lancashire, after a stuttering batting effort. They never got going after losing the toss, and when Michael Clarke pulled a long-hop down deep fine-leg's throat for 36, the innings was effectively over.
Dmitri Mascarenhas made 33 not out, but Lancashire were still able to cruise to their victory target of 121 with more than three overs to spare. It was a rare failure for Hampshire under the captaincy of Shane Warne, who bowled four unsuccessful overs and also recorded a duck.
