Concentration was the key, with the openers Cassie Mawby and Joe Wright ensuring they did not give away their wickets. Charlie Green top scored again with 11 and Ben Fletcher made an impressive 10. Quick singles safely taken through good calling and speedy decision were a notable feature of the innings.
