OXFORDSHIRE rounded off a dismal NCCA Trophy campaign with a fourth defeat from four.

After losses against Cumbria, Northumberland and Lincolnshire, the county’s Group One schedule came to an end with a six-wickets defeat against Herefordshire.

Oxon opener Zach Lion-Cachet followed a century in a National Counties T20 clash against Bedfordshire earlier in the season with 112, but he finished on the losing side as Herefordshire won by six wickets at Great & Little Tew.

Oxon lost their last seven wickets for 49 after Lion-Cachet departed, with Roshan Venkataraman taking four for 34.

Ben Chapman-Lilley anchored Herefordshire’s chase with 98 not out from 151 balls, with excellent supporting innings from Matt Pardoe (57) and Jujhar Johal (46).
