Showers plagued the game with the teams going off, losing nine overs from the Wellington innings. When the teams came back, the away side struggled to find their rhythm. Luff and Gooding departed after a solid partnership, while Sam Poole came in for a brisk 26 before he was bowled and the tail was cleared up for seven runs. This left Lympsham on a respectable 197 all out.
