A pity about the result, the result wasn't helped by some of the fielding, Peter Trego didn't have a good day in the field or with the bat, and James Hildreth let us down with the bat.

I thought the bowling was good enough and an umpire giving wides in the first over when some of the ball didn't look wide.

we can't expect Adam Hose to do it every match, he looked like he might until he was bowled by Simon Harmer.

James Hildreth is going through a bad time not help by the bad choice of shot, angled bat caught behind by James Foster off the bowling of Ryan ten Doeschata.

I was glad to see Steve Davies get some runs but he still needs to select when to play the big shot, how he managed to get bowled playing this shot goodness knows, with Steve covering most of the stumps Simon Harmer still managed to clip the bail off.

Johann Myburgh did what was required at the start of the innings, nobody could complain how he was out after giving us such a good start, this photo is a six hit by JM.

Ryan ten Doeschata bowled by Roelof van der Merwe.

Tom Westley also bowled by Roelof van der Merwe.

Alastair Cook caught by Steve Davies bowled by Jamie Overton.

A bit of surprise seeing Jim Allenby bowl after not seeing him bowl much in the fifty over games.
Alastair Cook edge a ball from Jim Allenby that didn't carry to Peter Trego.

We can still finish top if .......
