Wasim Mehmood (49) and Sean Oliver (41) led the way in Oxford’s innings, while Alan Priestley produced terrific figures of 8-48.

Tom Light was the star in Leighton Buzzard’s reply, making 111.

Only Rob Keates got going when Kingston Bagpuize batted first at home to leaders Twyford.

Keates top-scored with 58 as Kingston struggled to 118 against Jason Heslington and Ian Perna, both of whom returned figures of 5-28.

The paltry total meant that West Indian batsmen Hyron Shallow would be hard-pressed to make a fourth century in a row, but he gave it a good shot before falling for a top score of 60 as his side eased home by eight wickets.

K Bagpuize 3, Twyford 25.
