The Parks pitch was the winner as the four-day-clash between Oxford and Cam-bridge drifted to a dull draw.
Set 321 to win in a day and a bit, the Light Blues ground their way to 195-4 dec, before the sides agreed to pull stumps early and call it a draw.
There was a remarkable spell from Oxford off-spinner Sam Cato, who returned 1-31 off 31 overs, 16 of which were maidens.
So Oxford skipper Gus Kennedy’s selfless decision to declare on 91 not out the previous night did not pay dividends.
