Chris Board took 4-60 and then masterminded a run chase that saw Division 1 leaders Banbury 2nd clinch victory with one ball to spare at home to Cumnor. Cumnor opener James Neilson compiled a steady 52 then captain Dan Gaunt hit 64 before the visitors were bowled out in the final over for 213. Wayne Hazell ran through the tail to take 6-60.

Banbury's Andrew Sabin laid the platform of the home side's reply with 83, and Board (89no) finished the job off the fifth ball of the 50th over.

Banbury 2nd 30pts, Cumnor 14.

Shipton-under-Wychwood recovered from 21-6 after 14 overs and 38-7 after 18 to reach 195 all out on their way to their first win of the season.

Great & Little Tew paceman Anthony Smith (5-50) did the early damage, but a 76-run partnership between Tim Senior (89) and Ian Lewis (40) saw Shipton to a competitive total.

Leg-spinner Dickon Morris then took 7-25 from 14.3 overs as Tew collapsed to 109 all out.

Great & Little Tew 7, Shipton-under-Wychwood 30.

Oxford Downs lost ground on the leaders after a seven-wicket defeat at home to second-placed Buckingham Town.

Put into bat, Downs managed 192 before being all out, Chris Sandbach top scoring with 87.

But Town made light work of their reply, with Leigh Tomlinson hitting 60 and Kiwi Jimad Khan an unbeaten 70 as they eased to victory.

Oxford Downs 11, Buckingham Town 30.

Bicester & North Oxford seem to making a habit of failing to chase moderate totals as they were unable to pass the 177 set by Banbury Twenty. Only Dave Clark (38) and Andrew Grubich got going for Twenty as they struggled against the miserly spin of Paul Jeacock (4-21).

But Bicester laboured in reply against Michael Thomas (4-41),and settled for a draw on 140-8.

Banbury Twenty 15, Bicester & North Oxford 8.

Milton Keynes Park climbed off the bottom of the table for the first time this season and consigned their beaten opponents Dinton to bottom spot.

James Sprittles (4-43) and James Clark (3-32) combined to dismiss Dinton for just 89, which would have been even worse had Ashley Smith not hit 40.

Park then struggled against the whippy action of Mark Ludlow (4-51) before skipper Graham Simpson (31no) saw them to 90-7.
