A BATTLING 80 from Matt Winter held up Middlesex before the first-class county completed their predictable victory over Oxford MCCU in The Parks yesterday.
The students were never going to make the 528 needed, but they stuck to their task manfully before being bowled out for 230, going down by 331 runs.
Winter hit 13 fours in his innings and was well supported by Henry Hughes with 43.
