Police, who resumed the day on 98-2, trailing by 242 runs, reached 374-9 before declaring their innings closed after surpassing DCC’s 340-9 declared.

The inning was built around a vicious century from Savory who cracked an attractive 132 from 139 deliveries. 

His knock included 17 fours and three sixes. The crafty left-hander shared in a 167-run stand with Sampson who lit up DCC with 124 from 57 balls.

Quentin Samson on the go!
