We keep tippy tapping at them until we have only 7 left to win.
Wells gets caught by du Plooy off Abbott for a really good 66. 167-5.
Brown takes a thick edge for 4 and we win by 5 wickets.
22 sweet sweet points are our reward for a comprehensive performance.
Phillip Salt’s first innings hundred gives him the Man of the Match award – which I understand – but I’ve a huge admiration for Luke Wells who made 37 and 66 at crucial times, and has helped establish the platform for this decent win.
Our 109 points total boosts us to fourth, ten points clear of Nottinghamshire in fifth and we are only two points off Durham in third.
But, we are a long way – a long way – off Middlesex in second, who are on 147.
Strengthening the bowling worked well here. I wonder if we could use this momentum to take into our the T20.
