The seconds saw Grays pile up 351-4, with Jahid Ali hitting 157, and collapsed to 97 all out in reply, as Ghayyur Sajjad (5-27) did damage with the ball. And the thirds lost to Grays seconds, despite an early wicket for Junaid Ilyas (4-45) and good opening spell from Nishant Mittal.
Hasnain Naeem took two important catches, while Michael Garvey nabbed 3-45 as Grays were all out for 177.
