Wycombe Reign Supreme Against Oxford


High Wycombe Cricket Club beat Oxford in a clinical and professional manner, chasing 180 just one wicket down.


London Road hosted the match-up between the two teams with Oxford winning the toss and electing to bat.


On a wicket that nipped early doors, High Wycombe took advantage early. AJ Woodland managed to pick up 4 wickets and a game-changing runout that saw the end of a well established Oxford partnership.


The Oxford line-up soon crumbled with Thomas Hampton taking the key wicket of Ayub meaning that the remaining Oxford batters were unable to do much damage.


High Wycombe restricted Oxford thanks to some excellent bowling to 181 after losing all their wickets in the 48th over.


In return, the two Wycombe openers came out flying with a 114 run partnership, AJ contributing 35 and Callis with 67 of his own.


However, AJ was trapped LBW by a skidding delivery meaning his innings, unfortunately, came to a close.


That didn't stop Eliot Callis from reaching his landmark century, scoring 104 not out including 13 fours and 3 sixes.


Alongside Dan Marles, Callis lead the team to victory with the bat, chasing down 181 in the 34th over.


"Brilliant display from the 1st team. Restricting Oxford to 180 on a good pitch was a great effort with the ball. Chasing it 1 down was very clinical!" Skipper Marles confirmed at the end of the game.
