Batting first, the visitors piled on the runs, amassing a mammoth 311 all out.

Dan Croft and Charles Lambert (59) responded well, but Bedi and Carver both claimed two wickets apiece to reiterate their all round abilities.

Croft finally fell for 68, with 13-year-old leg-spinning prospect Rehann Sundar claiming the big scalp and finishing with fine figures of 3-15 as the hosts fell 97 runs short on 214 all out.
