There was a thriller at Chesterton in Division 3. Westcott made 153, Lee Price (4-30) and Steve Lewis (4-38) claiming four scalps apiece.

Agonisingly, the hosts were then dismissed for 152, Waqas Ur-Rehman’s 5-28 the main reason.

Marsh Gibbon added Wantage to their list of victims.

Joe Leonard returned figures of 5-39 as the latter were 151 all out before Charlie Shipperley made 64 in the victorious chase.

Jason Fuller stroked 83 of Stanton Harcourt’s 215 at Dorchester.

A fine 4-19 from Andrew Walker and 3-26 from Luke Pettifer then helped dismiss the hosts for 110.

Catches win matches and the inability to take chances partly allowed Great Horwood 2nd to sneak past Hook Norton 2nd by two wickets in Division 6.

Ian McStraw’s unbeaten 42 proved the other match winner.

Will Woodward returned figures of 5-14 to help rout Oxenford for 62.

Earlier, teammate William Gurney top-scored with 55 in Westbury 2nd’s 178-8.

The Stratfield Brake unit then dismissed their opponents for 128.

Chadlington 2nd shocked table-toppers Cowley Internationals 2nd in their Division 8 clash.

Chasing 107 for victory, Craig Atlas (29no) marshalled the tail to an unlikely one-wicket win.

The visitors then took victory at 83-5.
