Shipton-under-Wychwood's former seamer Paul Humphreys denied them victory off the final ball as Aston Rowant secured a dramatic draw in Division 1.

With Shipton needing two runs to win, Humphreys, who finished with figures of 4-36, bowled Omar Hussain to leave the visitors stranded on 182-7 in reply to the home side's 183-9.

Shipton's Sahan Wijeratne suffered the double disappointment of missing out on the win and on a ton, as he finished on 98 not out.

Earlier, a patient 53 by Tim Morgan had held together Rowant's innings before Matt Needham gave it some impetus with a brisk 47. Wijeratne took 3-15.

Aston Rowant 13pts, Shipton-under-Wychwood 10

Rowant's failure to win opened the door to Cumnor, who beat Great & Little Tew to go top of the league for the first time in the club's history.

Tew's 167 all out saw them race to 34 without loss in the seventh over, but limp to 55-3 after 24 as off-spinner Umair Ghazali took 2-11 in ten overs en route to 6-60.

Cumnor opener Graham Scott then scored an uncharacteristically rapid 38 to give the home side a flying start, before the elegant Andrew Robertson (65no) saw them to a four-wicket win.

Oxford Downs also climbed above Rowant into second after beating lowly Oxford 2nd by 75 runs.

Chris Sandbach top-scored with 41 for Downs in their 177-6, which came from 47 overs after time was lost to a shower.

South African quickie Marc Milligan then extracted pace and bounce from the wicket to take 5-54 as Oxford fell for just 102, despite Chris Thomas's 36.

Fine knocks of 83 by Andrew Sabin and 70 by Steve Beck were in vain as Banbury 2nd slumped to a six-wicket defeat at Bicester & North Oxford.

Put into bat, Banbury managed 229-4 from their 52 overs, but arguably did not make the most of having wickets in hand in the closing overs.

Darryl Woods (54) gave Bicester's reply a typically steady start before Duncan Bradshaw (65) and Aussie Andrew House (67no) did the rest.

Horspath paceman Lee Mason (4-23) helped dismantle the Banbury Twenty batting line up, which was soon back in the pavilion after being bowled out for 121.

Michael Thomas then took 3-52, but Horspath were never in any danger as Will Eason's 43 not out saw them to 123-4.
