Played at Victoria Park

- Easy win in first Divisional game of season
- Three Pumas wickets tumbled in first three overs
- Minor controversy over first wicked, batsman caught behind by keeper Ellis from Castle delivery - did it bounce after hitting bat? Consensus was that it hadn't, batsman walked
- Irony moment - last time we played Pumas, Mat Asquith broke their stumps - see report - and the same stumps appeared again, wonkily fixed with duct tape. Here's the irony bit - Mat bowled one ball that passed right through the stumps, without touching any of the sticks or dislodging the bails - clearly it was the identical delivery as last year, only the broken stump was so badly fixed and bent it allowed the ball to fly through.
- Pumas batsman Fussell offered only resistance, reaching 22, run out on penultimate ball
- Captain Asquith and Shahid made swift inroads into Pumas 60-6 total. Shahid fell to LBW on 39, Linde and Asquith finished job after 10 overs.
