Notes:
1.   Roberts scored 24 off the bat - the last ball (marked L) was a leg-bye

2.   Sutcliffe and Blair (25), and Morrison (24) scored their runs in an 8-ball over

3.   Caddick's over included a no-ball from which a leg-bye was taken
     (so two runs in all for the total)

4.   Willis' over to Patil included a no-ball (3rd ball) scored off,
     no extra runs being scored under the Laws at the time
