CRICKET: Last-wicket partnership all in vain

7:00am Friday 11th July 2014

Oxfordshire went down to Worcestershire by two wickets in a low-scoring encounter at Hagley Hall on Wednesday.

Oxon need to beat Shropshire next week to make sure of qualifying for the knock-out stages.

After choosing to bat first, the visitors slumped to 83-9 before a last-wicket stand of 61 between Neil Megson and Ian Curtis helped them to 144-9, Megson finishing with 50 not out.

That total looked enough when Worcestershire collapsed to 85-7 against Curtis and Darryl Woods.

However, Gary Mills hit an unbeaten 44 to see them home by two wickets with an over to spare.
