Just 148 runs were scored for the loss of 19 wickets in a thrilling match between Oxford Downs and Horspath, with the latter running out winners by one wicket on Saturday.

Horspath won the toss and dismissed the home side for just 73, Lee Mason taking 4-28 and Will Eason 4-12.

Downs then fought back, with Marc Milligan bagging 6-35 and Luke List 3-23, but the visitors managed to scrape together 75-9 to collect maximum points.

Banbury 2nd seamer Ollie Murrey took his haul to 19 wickets in three weeks with 8-57 as Aston Rowant were blown away for just 111.

The top seven of Rowant's batting line-up made double figures, but none reached 30 and six fell to Murrey as he made the most of his side's decision to bowl first in helpful conditions.

Opener Andrew Sabin then batted for 34 overs for just 29 runs while Wayne Hazell hit a quickfire 40 to lead their side to a six-wicket win.

Aston Rowant 5, Banbury 2nd 25.

Another bowler in form is Banbury Twenty's Michael Thomas, who followed up last week's 6-62 by taking 5-22 to help bowl out Cumnor for 89.

Keith Arnold (3-17) also enjoyed bowling on a wicket that was badly affected by last week's heavy rain. Of the Cumnor batsmen, only Ali Morteza (32) showed the application required to survive.

Earlier, John Wright (60) and Dave Clark (44) had taken Twenty to 174-9, in which off spinners Umair Ghazali and Sam Jones both took 4-37.

The home side's reply took half the time, as they raced to 75-1.

Veteran left-arm spinner Shaun Miller then took 6-37 as Bicester slumped to 73-6, but only one more wicket fell as the visitors scrambled their way to a three-wicket win.
