Mock’s 110 included 16 fours and three sixes.
Glen Alvie veteran Kelvin Simpson somehow stopped the runaway train with his gentle but accurate off breaks claiming five big wickets.
Suddenly 300 looked like a good score for the Diggers before Keily and Dell cranked it up again.

Number 11 Nath Cant did the right thing, hanging around until the veteran scored a memorable century.
