Brett Storey dismissed skipper Andy Barker (0) and Graham Beech (0) cheaply but Warne and Nick Marsh added 53 for the 3rd wicket when the Australian was stumped by Peter Barnes off Keith Roscoe. Marsh went on to make 66 before being caught and bowled by Bob Holmes. Professional Colin Miller (3-66) then removed the lower middle order with only Paul Seedle (32) offering any resistance as wickets tumbled.
