Regan and Capper pushed the score to 56 before Lodge went aerial to take a great diving catch to see the back of Regan for 29.
A 102 run partnership for the fourth wicket took the the score to 158 before I Tomenson again with another caught and bowled brought Josh Capper’s knock to an end after scoring a brilliant 65. Gaz Davies went next over after looking in good nick for his 41 bowled by Lodge.

Davies (2/28) had Paul (0) caught behind and with Banks finding the timbers again, Pott were wobbling on 41/4. Alex Grimes had A Tomenson stumped by Wild for 26 at 72/6. With some resistance coming from the tail, J Lisle (26) and I Tomenson (20) took the score into three figures with Pott eventually being dismissed in the 27th over for 115.
