Runners-up Cublington signed off by crushing Oxford 2nd by 175 runs.

Hanborough were hammered by nine wickets at Stokenchurch as they bowed out of the Cherwell League with defeat.
John McGrady hit 50, but there were few other highlights as they were all out for 160.
Paul Maddock (5-48) and Arshad Latif (4-28) were always in command. Latif then hit 86 and Joe Brown was 60 not out when Stokenchurch reached 161-1 in only 22.2 overs.
Hanborough were deducted five points for failing to provide a scorer – so ended the day with one less point than they started.
