GAMINDU Kanishka dominated Shipton-under-Wychwood’s in-form strike bowler Anupam Sanklecha with a super century as Thame Town romped to a massive 194-run home victory.

Sanklecha, who took 8-8 in the previous week’s win against Reading, finished with 0-67 from 14 overs as Thame rattled up 252-4 dec in 45.5 overs after choosing to bat.

Kanishka scored 122 not out from 117 balls, with four sixes and 11 fours. He starred in a third-wicket stand of 123 with Michael Beard (37).

Shipton slowly progressed to 33-1 in reply, before a clatter of wickets saw them trying to block out for the draw.

They became almost strokeless against the spin duo of Michael Higgs and Andrew Russell, who ripped through the middle order.

At 57-7, with time running out, it appeared they might hang on for a draw, but the last three wickets fell inside two overs to leave them all out for 57 in 41.1 overs.

Higgs, who opened the bowling, took 5-24 in 18 overs, while Russell claimed 3-4 in 9.1 overs as Thame climbed to fourth in the table.

Leaders Aston Rowant’s march to the title stumbled with five-wicket defeat at Chesham.

After being put in to bat, the top three in the Rowant order all got going, but none played a major innings.

James McDougall top-scored with 49, but even he struggled to accelerate the scoring against Pip France and Matt Rance.

The run-rate ground almost to a halt in mid-innings before Wes Morrick and Leo Bethell added 48 from the last six overs to lift them to 181-6.

Morrick then struck an early blow for Rowant, but an innings of 78 from 114 balls by Luke Webb guided Chesham to 182-5 in 46 overs.

Rowant now lead by just seven points from Datchet, who beat Great Brickhill by 171 runs.
