    Captain Mark Cosgrove says: "The pitch was pretty good to be fair, over the three days I don't think it got too many wickets. We can't really blame anybody else but ourselves."

    Claire Lomas said she was "grateful" organisers will allow her to take part in the race.

    Claire Lomas

    She said: "It is up to the organisers to make a decision and they have not changed the rules, but they are allowing me to do it unofficially.

    "The legs move [with the help of the suit] but they only move by me giving it signals for every step and that's by using the parts of my body that aren't paralysed.

    "I work hard for every step, even balancing in the suit is challenging."

    Claire Lomas

    The Leicestershire woman ran the London Marathon in her suit in 2012 but was recently told she couldn't take part in the Vitality London 10k because UK Athletics rules prohibited motors.  

    Well, they've changed their mind now and said she can run but as an "unofficial" entry.
