Richard Gauntlett took excellent figures of 6-43 for Oxford Downs 2nd to help set up a five-wicket success at Kimble.

The home side's decision to bat first backfired as only Tony Skeggs (46) made much progress and they were dismissed for 131.

Paddy Daniel (39no) then held together Downs' reply.

Rudi du Plessis (4-64) then had Town in deep trouble before Matthew Thatcher (60no) and Ryan Spragg (38no) took their side to an unlikely victory.
