OXFORDSHIRE completed an incredible run chase to beat Wiltshire and get their first three-day win of the season.

The game looked certain to be heading towards a draw when the hosts declared on 314/6 deep into the final afternoon, giving their opponents a target of 208.

But Oxon produced a ferocious display of offensive batting to knock off the total inside 28 overs and claim a memorable four-wicket triumph.

Marcus Campopiano starred with a brilliant 86 from 66 balls, while Tom Cosford chipped in with a quickfire 50 (34).

It saw Oxon leapfrog their opponents as they moved off the bottom of the NCCA Championship Western Division 1 table, with Berkshire next up at Thame Town CC on August 15 to 17.

The visitors probably thought they would win in much more convincing fashion after skittling Wiltshire for 97 on day one.

Oxon dominated from the start of the innings, with Gareth Andrew taking an early wicket and Alex Chapman striking twice to leave the hosts 6/3.

The duo kept the pressure on, as Pravdeep Chahal mopped up the tail.

Chris Aubrey, last man out to Chapman after a brave 51, was the only batsman to threaten.

The Oxon bowler ended with figures of 3/21, while Andrew claimed 4/36 and Chahal 3/28.

Campopiano fell for a golden duck in reply, but after Tom Haynes and Olly Clarke joined him back in the pavilion the visitors began to recover.

Zach Lion-Cachet and Cosford (29) put on 64 for the fourth wicket, setting the former on the way to 73 (153).

The rest of the Oxon batsmen lacked the staying power, other than Freddie Smith (31), and they could only make 205 – a lead of 108.

Wiltshire’s second innings was a considerable improvement, led by opener Jack Mynott’s excellent 104 (214).

He was ably assisted by Bradley Dawson’s quickfire 56 (42) and captain Ed Young’s 49 as the hosts declared.

Haynes fell for four early on, but Campopiano and Smith got to work.

They put on 84 runs in 11 overs before Smith departed for 39, only for Cosford to come in.

The runs were flowing as they piled on 74 in nine overs and when Campopiano fell Oxon were within 40 of their target.

There was a brief wobble as Lion-Cachet, Clarke and Cosford fell in the space of nine balls, but Andrew came in to seal victory with a four.
