CRICKET: Sabin can't save Banbury
10:00am Monday 9th September 2013 in Sport
Despite a spectacular innings from Lloyd Sabin, Banbury lost by 67 runs at home to High Wycombe and had to settle for third place in the Division 1 table.
Wycombe, needing a win to be certain of avoiding the drop, rattled up 236-4 from 50 overs thanks to a sparkling unbeaten 94 off 105 balls by former Surrey all-rounder Jamie Benning.
The only bowler to escape punishment was Luke Ryan who took 2-23 in ten immaculate overs.
The target was a gettable one for Banbury.
But nobody could stay with opener Sabin, who made 93 from109 balls before being last out with the score on 169 in the 40th over.
The only plaer to give support was Ashley Blanchard in a seventh-wicket stand of 65, as Jonathan Burden claimed five wickets for Wycombe.
