Lancs had put on 34 when Stephen Moore was caught by Clarke to give Rikki Barker a wicket.

The second came on 77 and this time, it was Clarke who took the wicket when he had Horton trapped blw for 17.

The home side had just passed the 100 mark when Ian Bell caught Prince off the bowling of Darren Maddy.

Ten runs later and Chris Wright took his first wicket of the game when he had Brown who had made 46 caught by Will Porterfield and with Maddy having Croft caught by Clarke, the play finished with 55 overs bowled and Lancs on 125-5
