It was a disrupted round of Tasman Premier League cricket but there were still plenty of fireworks in reduced over matches across the region today.

WTTU set a solid target in its 20 overs at bat, Ryan Flowers top scoring with 23 with the ten wickets shared across the ACOB bowlers.
The defending champions took little time chasing down 120, Jonty Raxworthy blasting 39 from just 28 as as ACOB romped home at just under 10 runs an over.
The travelling Falcons also claimed a comfortable win, defeating Wanderers with seven wickets and four overs to spare.
Despite 57 from Joseph O'Connor at the top of the order and some late destruction form Hayden Ingham, Wanders could muster just 164 off 40 overs.
Joel Lavender steered the chase with an unbeaten 81 to give his side its first win of the campaign.
In Blenheim, Stoke/Nayland was far too strong for the Dolphins, dismissing the hosts for just 76 courtesy of 4/21 from Jared Silvester.
Stoke ensured it was an early trip home over the hill, losing just three wickets to reach the target in 13.3 overs.
Nelson College and Wakatu were forced to abandon their match.
