But apart from Harding, only Jacques Banton on 22 could muster doubles figures as the Green perished against Berkswell's formidable bowling attack.

Former Glamorgan spinner Nick James netted figures of three for 10, ex Derbyshire paceman Tom Milnes took two for seven while one time Warwickshire and Leicestershire player Ateeq Javid claimed two for 39.
