The hosts loss the toss and were asked to bat, and the difference between the sides soon showed when Purshouse and Smallwood were removed by Shaukat with the score on 12.

Walters soon followed, unlucky to be adjudged LBW and Worksop were 27 for 3.

The two Smiths tried to rebuild but young Tim Smith fell to Anderson after seeing off a hostile spell by Alex Tudor.

Conor Smith soon followed, undone by the mystery of Saqlain Mushtaq.

Brief entertainment followed by Spooner (44), despatching the ball to all parts, however he lacked support and Worksop were finally bowled out for 117.

Worksop did briefly believe they could pull of the impossible reducing the Cavs to 46 for 4 at one point, Spooner , Walters and Smith taking key wickets.
