DAN Savin’s super spell of 6-17 blew away leaders Banbury 3rd as Bicester & North Oxford claimed their first win of the season in Cherwell League Division 3.

Savin soon had Banbury regretting their decision to bat first, ripping through the top and middle order with 4-11 from his opening burst of seven overs.

There was brief resistance from Neil Megson (24), but he was the only batsman to reach double-figures as Kishan Dave and Danny Clarke, supported by excellent fielding continued where Savin and Andy Godbold left off, as the hosts were shot out for 71.

Bicester lost Joe Moorman in the third over of their reply but Nick Moorman (31no) and Ryan Moore (20) helped secure a welcome eight-wicket victory.

This Saturday, Bicester are at home to Cublington.

Westbury were denied victory in a high-scoring draw against lowly East Oxford at Lincoln College.

Put in to bat, Westbury lost two early wickets, but a third-wicket stand of 141 between Olly Tice and Graham Judd put Westbury back on track.

Judd finished with 83, an innings containing 12 fours, while Tice contributed 50

Tom Wilson then hit 61 not out as Westbury were dismissed for 262 in the 50th over.

Richard Burton was the pick of the attack, finishing with 3-51 from 12 overs.

In reply, the home side lost wickets at regular intervals, with only Mubashar Hassan really getting going with 57.

Sulaiman Hussain chipped in with 28 and Chetan Walia 26, but East Oxford opted to shut up shop for the draw, closing on 207-8.

Twyford lost by 65 runs away to Division 1 leaders Dinton.

Tom Weymes’s 4-57 was scant consolation as Dinton racked up 239-9 in their 53 overs.

Atif Ali then struck 71 in Twyford’s reply, but they were all out for 174 as Ryan Chapman took 4-44 and Will Fisher 3-27.

Division 2 strugglers Oxford & Bletchingdon Nondescripts were blown away by Bledlow Village’s Tom Moore as they fell to their third defeat in four matches.

Nondies were shot out in the 39th over for just 95 as Moore claimed 6-17, Vasu Shah finishing 37 not out.

Bledlow then eased to 97-4 in 22.5 overs to seal victory.

Bicester & North Oxford 2nd suffered their first defeat in Division 7 when losing by 22 runs at home to Cublington 2nd.

Matt Clarke’s 4-18 had restricted Cublington to 143, but Oscar Phillips’s 30 was the top score as as Bicester were bowled out for 121.

In Division 10, Bicester & North Oxford 3rd had the better of a draw away to Aston Rowant 5th.

Graham Savin’s 33 was the main contribution to the visitors’ total of 157.

Marcus Mears then took 4-12 to ensure Rowant struggled to 119-7 in reply.
