Match report Bradford won the toss and batted first. A strong opening partnership saw us to 83 before Mo Beale went for 29 in the 16th over. After 19 overs, some miserable weather saw the players come off and have the match reduced to 36 overs a side. 2 overs after recommencing play, 3 wickets fell in consecutive overs, the last being that of Guy Tadman who finished on 72. Some good batting from Nick Coles and Rufus Lakin saw a partnership of 53 and gave a strong finish to the innings, setting 206 to win.

Bath looked strong from the off, despite the wicket in the first over. Throughout the bulk of the Bath innings, S Crocker and R Crocker provided steady runs, with 41 and 66 respectively, despite a strong fielding performance from Bradford (given the conditions) The other batsmen chipped in with helpful runs, allowing Bath to reach the total in 33.3 overs.
