Soon Greenwood were six down with 90 on the board. Opener Eyre, continuing his fine form of recent weeks, was still present and a chance remained to build a decent total.

When Eyre finally fell in the penultimate over for 78 Park were pushing to their total of 195.
The evergreen Lee opened the bowling and using the old ball made an immediate impact taking a wicket with his third ball.
Four more wickets were to fall with the score below 70 before Park took the new ball. With the new ball came the rain and as this fell runs flowed for Sandridge.
Betts in particular found the boundary with increasing ease before being snaffled by Ahmed.
As Park searched for a much needed victory the close catchers increased and Lee returned. With just six overs to spare Lee picked up his fifth wicket to seal the win.
