Commentator: Justin Smyth

The Knights have put a commanding performance today, they put the Warriors batters under pressure from the beginning of the innings and never really let go. The Warriors lost 6 wickets before scoring fifty and there was no coming back from that. Both Tector and Adair bowled very well and I'm sure that Wilson will be delighted on how his new team has started the season. If it wasn't for the last wicket partnership of 69 betwen Britton and Young, this day would have been a complete disaster for the Warriors. I'm sure that it will give the Warriors management a lot to think about as they make their way back home.

So the Knights pick up an extra bonus point for the size of the win, with five in total to move themselves to the top of the table. With the next game scheduled for 10:45am tomorrow against the Lightnig. a They will know that a win tomorrow will give them a commanding lead in the competiton. That just leaves me to thank you for following the commentary from a very windy La Manga today. I'm hoping that you'll join me tomorrow morning, at 10:45am, for the final game in the La Manga series. That's 9:45am UK/Ireland time. Goodnight!

Tector to Young, OUT, Tector does get his five for! Young moved his front leg out of the way and looked to hammer the ball into the legside. He was through the shot too early and can only look back and see his middle stump knocked back.

Getkate to Britton, no run, missed run out! Britton nurdled the ball into the off-side and set off for the run. The fielder was in quickly from point, there was never a run there. Rather then throw it to Wilson, he went for the stumps and missed!
