Norfolk skipper Paul Newman has called for consistency from his batsmen today as they resume the chase for a big first innings total against neighbours Suffolk at Manor Park.
The visitors racked up 364 for seven on a sweltering day at Horsford yesterday, including a magnificent 162 from Andrew Mawson.
Norfolk made their first breakthrough in the 13th over when Steve Goldsmith bowled Russell Catley. Andrew Brown was run out for 32 in the 27th over after quick work by James Walker and Suffolk were 86 for two.

Mawson was proving hard to budge and reached his 150 in the 80th over. Suffolk's 19-year-old record third-wicket stand of 222 was moving ever closer, but finally Brown broke through; Mawson tried a cut, wicket-keeper Luke Newton juggled the ball but it came to rest in his gloves and Brown could at last celebrate. Mawson and Tim Catley put on 211 and Suffolk were on 297 for three.
Teenager James Spelman then had Chris Warn caught and bowled for 10 and then added another when Chris Swallow was caught by Newton.
