Bay of Plenty Cricket’s devel­op­ment match against Hawke’s Bay may have been dubbed a friendly game, but when­ever the two Bays go head-to­head there is al­ways a com­pet­i­tive edge.

Tim Pringle and Ja­cob Lo­gan came to­gether to steady the ship with a 77-run part­ner­ship be­fore Lo­gan was dis­missed for 56.

Pringle car­ried on to top score for his side with 62 as Bay of Plenty were dis­missed for 241 in the fi­nal over.

Hawke’s Bay made a solid start and at 128/2 looked right on tar­get to chase down the tar­get.

Bay of Plenty’s Iman Singh took charge and grabbed three wick­ets to put the brakes on the Hawke’s Bay batsmen.
