Crusaders also started aggressively in reply, but clever bowling from Alex Akers (2-18) and the safe hands of Wells and Will Nash (2-16) soon took care of the top order.

Reece Pybus (3-15) scattered the stumps of the next two men in and skipper Neil Saunders took 2-11 as Crusaders were all out for 133.
