Thereís about to be a very confident run out appeal Ė not given.

Greg gets his size threes behind a drive.

Ö but there isnít much he can do about this one as he concedes 6 out of his 5-26.

John Holder has given test players out LBW, so he isnít going to worry that Milnrowís no11 isnít happy.

Adamís on the defensive as Naeem gets into his stride.

Naeem swops to the bottom end so Adam takes a boundary from the new bowler at the top.

Tom joins the action after Adam has found the one fielder on the leg boundary. Looks like someoneís just kicked the keeper in the nuts and run off !

John Holder says Dean is LBW and he has to go.

Madu is totally bemused by Naeem and lasts just three balls before guiding one to slip.

Milla shows Naeem the makerís name.

Those nuts are obviously still giving the keeper a problem.

Itís hard work but the runs come slowly.

After Milla was bowled round his legs by another turner from Naeem, it was left to Greg to hit the winning run, but not before the scores had remained tied for 23 balls.
