OXFORDSHIRE Under 14s recovered from defeat to league leaders Staffordshire in fine style, with a six-wicket victory over Buckinghamshire at Campbell Park in their final ECB County Cup Group 2 match of the season on Sunday.
Bucks won the toss and elected to bat first, posting a respectable score of 183-8 from their 45 overs, with Ed Robinson (42) and Finn Mason (31) impressing for the hosts.
Jordan Garrett was the star of the show in an explosive innings, hitting 72 as Oxon powered to their target in 39.4 overs.
Philip Lloyd provided some resistance, taking three wickets by lbw – including Garrett’s – but his efforts ultimately proved fruitless as Oxon eased to 186-4 with more than five overs to spare.
