Captain Craig Perrin chose to bat first and saw Mdaminul Isalm Shihan (20) and Raihan Hussain (39) make starts, before Mitchell Fenn (3-33) reduced Wood to 89-3.

Shahbaz Khan (24) put on 56 with Perrin, while Hamzah Ikram (31) added 58, before both fell to Vivian Paver (2-33).

And Perrin shared a further 55 for the eight wicket with Taqi Abbas, before finally succumbing for 92 to Jonathan Mowll, having hit a six and 12 fours in his 114-ball innings.

Abbas struck two sixes and four fours in his unbeaten 34 from 25 balls as Wood closed on 281-8, with Ed Abel Smith (2-43) nabbing a late brace for Hutton.

But the visitors reached 85 without loss as Adam Holdgate (41) and Paver made a solid start, before Khan and Abbas began to make inroads.

Australian Paver fell two runs short of a fifty after hitting eight fours, but Joseph Parry (37) and Connor Whetstone (38) put on 72 for the sixth wicket.

They fell in quick succession, though, and Wood wrapped up a 55-run win in the 46th over as Abbas (3-36), Khan and Ikram (both 2-49), Hafiz Yawar Afzal, Harry Thompson and Joe Stallibrass all had success with the ball.
