Despite 50 from Michael Markham, Westbury stuttered in response, before they prevailed by one wicket, with Rymer hitting the winning runs.

Brill’s Darren Kavanagh (4-12) and Ben Jackson (4-37) were the stars as they routed Kidlington for 110 in the second round of the Osberton Radiators Cup.

In bowler-friendly conditions, Peter Whitlock maintained his fine run of form with 39 runs in Chesterton 2nd’s 114 all out in the Keith Crump Centenary Cup first round.
