CRICKET: Shipton slip to bottom as fine start is all in vain

Oxford Mail: CRICKET: Shipton slip to bottom as fine start is all in vain CRICKET: Shipton slip to bottom as fine start is all in vain

Shipton-under-Wychwood failed to build on a tremendous start as they lost by 26 runs at home to Amersham.

The result means the hosts are propping up the Serious Cricket Home Counties Premier League Division 2 table having failed to win a game.

After choosing to bat, the visitors lost their first three wickets with only six runs on the board, with Anupam Sanklecha (3-29) and Shaun Cross (3-46) doing the damage.

That became 44-5 before a fifth-wicket partnership of 90 between Paul Langley (45) and Andrew Viney (56) helped Amersham reach 198-9 from their 50 overs.

Shipton struggled in reply as they were dismissed for 172 with 14 balls left as they failed to cash in on the efforts of their bowlers.

Shipton 7pts, Amersham 20
