Matt Lineker (70) and Steve Wood (74) were the big scorers while Peterborough Town pair Joe Dawborn and skipper Lewis Bruce both picked up wickets.

Dawborn had figures of 2-99 off 26 overs and Bruce 1-85 off 15 overs.

Cambs will resume today on 44-2 with Asim Butt, another Peterborough Town player, on 20 not out.

Debutant, Keiran Judd, the fourth Peterborough Town player in the side, was out for 14.
