Bourne - who won the competition when it was last staged in 2019 - had defeated Deeping in Saturday's opener at Outgang Road.

The hosts - who had knocked Bourne out of the Stamford KO Shield last midweek - had batted first and were dismissed for 132.

Brandon Diplock and Matt Kidd led Bourne's wicket-taking with 3-23 and 3-24 respectively from four over spells.

Colin Cheer claimed 2-24 while Tom Dixon delivered 1-18 from his four over stint.

Opener Josh Smith was Deeping's top scorer with 41 while Joe Malton made 23 and Jack Martin hit 19.

Bourne were set a revised target after the wet weather interrupted proceedings and secured their success inside 10 overs as Sam Evison top-scored with 35 while Pete Morgan made 24.

Deeping then bounced back to run out seven-wicket winners in the next match of the day against Woodhall Spa.

Spa had been dismissed for 102 as Javed Ghani produced a fine spell to finish with 3-17 from 3.3 overs.

Skipper James Hook returned 2-16, Hayatullah Niazi 2-14 and Shahzad Amir 2-26 from their four-over spells.

Smith got Deeping off to a strong start by making 38 before Zeeshan Manzoor (27no) and Niazi (16no) steered the hosts to victory.

Woodhall were then on the end of a scintillating batting display from Morgan as Bourne finished the day's action with a 44-run success.

Morgan smashed 10 fours and six sixes in an unbeaten 114 not out as he carried his bat to help Bourne blast 196-3 from their 20 overs.

Jack Berry made 42 in an 85-run opening stand before Evison joined Morgan and made 33 in their 82-run partnership for the next wicket.

Woodhall produced a spirited start in their run chase through the efforts of Jay Parmar (42), Oliver Caswell (31) and Karan Parmar (32).

Kidd made the first breakthrough as Spa reached the half-century mark before Dixon started to weave his magic.

He took 4-16 from four overs as Woodhall lost six wickets for just 12 runs as Cheer chipped in with 2-22.

Tom White and James White then produced some late resistance as Woodhall closed their 20 overs on 152-8.
