Oxfordshire's Minor Counties Championship Western Division clash with Wales was abandoned as a draw after more rain at Banbury today.

The hosts crawled to 135-6 off 66 overs in their first innings before the umpires finally brought the match to a close at 2.30pm.

Resuming on 85-3, a delayed start saw eight overs lost straight away and the players were on and off throughout.

Craig Haupt added two runs to his overnight score before he was bowled by Michael Reed for 19.

Richard Kaufman could not repeat his match-saving century against Wiltshire in the last Championship game, falling lbw to Reed for 7.

Richard West top-scored with 29 before being caught by Tom Maynard, the son of former England batsman Mat-thew Maynard.

Oxon closed 229 runs behind Wales, who were never really able to capitalise on their first innings total of 364-9.

The next Championship outing for Oxfordshire is against Cornwall at Challow & Childrey from July 26 to 28.

They then complete their programme with trips to Herefordshire at Colwall and Berkshire at Newbury.
