As Dinton took the field after tea they know they were going to need to bowl well as their below par score felt to be 20 or 30 runs light of what it should have been.

Having observed the success of the Cadnam spinners Dinton started with their own spinner Rob Middlecote (1-25) and he along with James Nuttall (1-16) were straight into the action each taking a wicket in their third overs.

Dinton rung the changes after 11 overs and brought on Rich Pearce and Sean Howell and this started a procession to and from the pavilion as the pair demolished the home batting order.

They bowled equally as well and also ended up with equally the same figures of 3-16.
