A fine pitch freshened by the rain with a snooker table like outfield meant an even contest between bat & ball as exemplified by Davis & Newman with 38 & 36 respectively & John baglivi with the latter. With little margin for error John bowled a controlled line & always threatened illustatrating how much he was missed in a recent derby match. With Stuart Roberts chipping in with a couple of wickets as the batters flailed, P were set a fair target.
However, only 3 batters really got going lead by left hander John Green who was able to show his flair & talent in a rare appearence for P. With P still chasing hard wickets fell regularly as others came & went, Choudery, also picking up 3 wickets in the chase but P lost their last wicket with 7 balls remaining & with the quick opener, Davis back on, the draw was honourably achieved with Dobson & John Baglivi at the crease.
