The 3rd team were left shellshocked as a final over collapse saw them slip to defeat at Newport II. Going into the final six, Wellington needed just five runs, but somehow conspired to lose three wickets and lose the match by one run. The home side had earlier set a total of 180 all out in 39 overs with Hugh Morris (3-18 off 8 overs) again impressing. Stuart Taylor (3-32) and Hamza Bhatti (2-35) were also in the wickets. There were contributions right down the Wellington card, of which Taylor (35) and captain Simon Topper (28) were the most weighty, but the chase came undone at the last.
