In reply, the boys from D.S could only accumulate 151 for their first innings, handing a 30-run advantage to Prince of Wales’ College. Wicket keeper batsman Teron Baskeran was the only player to make a meaningful contribution to the D.S. total, making a fine 64. The Cambrians got to bat for only 6 overs in their 2nd innings as bad light came into play and the umpires decided to call curtains on the 2nd day of play.
