      • Karori 255-8 (50 overs)  lost to Upper Hutt 256-3 (46.1 overs) by 7 wickets Baker 71. Sewell 54. Allan 34.  McLean 2-35 There was to be no Great Escape this time, despite the game having all the hallmarks of a now-typical ‘poor win’ after again getting ourselves into trouble early on. But with some crucial missed chances in the field proving costly, Upper Hutt were deserved winners today.
