However, Winscombe's bowling performance could not have been so much different than to that of their batting as some poor bowling gifted Wembdon plenty of runs.

Winscombe started well with Liam Cureton (1-23) claiming a wicket in the second over, but with Gower chancing his arm to hit 79 until he was stumped by Lund off Alan Hunt, it was left to Bailey (51 not out) and Palmer (34 not out) as Wembdon knocked the runs off in only 20 overs to condemn Winscombe to their fifth consecutive defeat.
