Bangor captain, Sohaib Khan opted to have first use of a good batting track, losing a wicket early on as Ryan Symonds-Mayes edged behind to keeper Dave Jenkins off the bowling of Oosthuizen. Number three Chris Barry and opener Chris Dawson added 41 for the second wicket to take it to 47 in 17 overs, at which Dawson was caught by Sion Francis for 11, in Jack Williams’ second over. That was to be Williams’ last over, as in the next over bowled by Moc Llywelyn, Williams pulled up with a hamstring injury as he chased the ball to the boundary and he took no further part in the match; the visitors having to field with 10 for 27 overs. At 63, Llywelyn bowled Sohaib Khan and at 66 Peter Jones was caught behind by Jenkins standing up to spinner Sam Williams.

Davies was on 29 at the time, after he had survived a very confident lbw shout, the ball striking his back leg adjacent to the stumps, Sam being the bowler. There were another 50 runs added to the total from the last 10 overs, Davies scoring 30 of those. Aidan Kelly was bowled by Morgan Yorke, Saif Ijaz caught by Stuart Evans off Francis for 9 and Subhan Khan bowled by Francis to make it 143 for 8. Seven runs later wicket number 9 fell, Paul Lewis giving Francis a second catch and Llywelyn a second wicket. From 150 for 9, Davies and last man Hadi Zaidi advanced it to 167 for 9 in the final 2 overs, Davies finishing on 59 not out from 67 deliveries.
