But Wisbech looked set for a remarkable win while in-form Gary Freear was at the crease. He smashed 77 before he was caught off a high full toss, a delivery that might have been deemed a no-ball on another night.

Wisbech eventually closed on 193-7, 35 runs adrift to leave both teams with one win apiece in their three-team zone.
