After winning the toss, Seaton skipper Ben Morgan wasted little time in deciding to bat first on what looked another five Court Lane batting strip.
Matt Hewer and Ryan Daye launched the home effort with the bat and took the score to 58 before Hewer fell for 13. That brought Joel Seward to the wicket to join Aussie Dare and the pair set about having some 'fun it he sun', as they despatched the ball to all parts of the ground.
When the pair had finished, they had added 185 for the second wicket which became that of Joel Seward, but not before he had stuck 71 from 93 deliveries faced, hitting six fours and one six. Seward's departure left Seaton on 243-2 and it was quickly 243-3 as the magnificent innings of dare finally came to an end.
The Aussie had faced 122 balls, hitting 14 fours and two sixes for his contribution of 129.
