Baines was now joined by Jack Howard, again another partnership was building, the score was on 80 when Howard was out for 13, adding 30. Baines soon followed for 23, and two more quick wickets fell, meant Kenilworth were up against it now on 101 for 6, still needing 71 for the outright win.

The visitors continued to struggle against the Wishaw bowling, and lost their last four wickets for only 24 more runs, all out for 125 in the 49th over, just eight balls from securing the draw.
