But their innings fell away to 170 all out as a succession of batsmen got in and got out, with Jack Parish (3-35) and James Gear (3-42) sharing the spoils.

Rob Large (87) and Ash Pearson (63no) turned the run chase into a procession, which ended on 173-3.

Buckingham 25pts, Twyford 6 Mark Robey (50no), Charlie Beeson (43) and Jim Howe (32) were key to Sandford St Martin’s 213-5 at Bicester & North Oxford, for whom Daniel Clark claimed 3-64 in Division 3.
