Lymington v Wessex Pilgrims

Side Batting First: Wessex Pilgrims 255 for 3
Side Batting Second: Lymington 131 for 9

The Wessex Pilgrims made the most of their visit to Lymington by posting a healthy 255. The superiority of bat over ball was shown in that the openers shared a partnership of 177 in 30 overs, before Dan Waters removed N Birt (72). This was the last success until the anti-penultimate over when M Hollier (144) holed out to Scott Tapper (2-46).

The loss of an early wicket to J Gawler (2-15) in the early exchanges was a fair indication of what was to follow, reflected in the fact that the top score was Peter Harding (18) batting at number ten, although others, including Dom Di Maria (17), made double figures. With J Wilson (4-11) ripping out the lower middle order, it was left to Tim Saunders and Dan Waters to bat out the last over for a one-sided draw.
