They welcomed C Hlengani and A Beaumont to the team and captain Rowe lost the toss on a pitch looking to be lively early on and was asked to bat first. Hales lost three quick wickets of Rowe, Squire and Jones as B Gates showed everyone exactly how to bowl in-swinging balls on a very helpful pitch.
Hlengani came in with the score on 15-3 hoping to revive the Hales innings with C Andersen but was run out for four. A resilient C Andersen soon followed for eight.
Hales continued to lose regular wickets with the only real resistance coming from R. Anderson who batted superbly, mixing solid defence and fine strokeplay in his innings of 27. Hales were eventually bowled out after 31 overs for a very sorry looking 68, leaving R Andersen stranded not out. Gates took 5-23.
