Falkland were inserted and got off to a steady opening start through Jimmy Etteridge and Nigel Trumper, losing the first wicket at 46 when Trumper was caught behind for 17. Two more wickets fell quite quickly as Masters was introduced into the attack and the home side stuttered to 68-3, Etteridge was then joined by Dave Harrison and the pair got the innings back on track with a fine partnership of 76 before Harrison unluckily played on for 35. Etteridge stood firm holding the innings together and at 179 for 4 with 8 overs remaining a competitive total looked on the cards. The dismissal of Jason Williams for a quickfire 19 triggered a steady flow of wickets with most falling to Masters (7-45) who seemed to have the home batsmen mesmorised with his slow medium pace. In the end Falkland had to settle for a below par score of 207-9 with Etteridge finally falling for a fine 89.
Tring’s innings also got off to a solid start as the Falkland attack struggled to get anything out of the wicket, Ambrose and Adams both comfortably reached their 50’s in the same over before both falling quickly to Nigel Trumper and Jason Williams respectively. Falkland did manage to slow the run rate to apply some pressure to the new batsmen through Trumper and Jack Hughes but Tring overseas Devisetty looked to be the key wicket as he started forcing the pace. Joel Martin returned to have Devisetty (39) caught behind to a fine low catch from Harrison and a degree of panic started to set in as Hughes removed Tring skipper Matt Bowyer and then took 2 wickets in the penultimate over. The visitors however only required 2 from the last over and with Tomlinson (32no) still at the wicket they ran a bye through to the keeper off the penultimate ball of the match to reach 208-7, Hughes finished with (3-65) from his 13 overs
