CRICKET: Wiltshire wrap up Championship win
WILTSHIRE took just 14 balls to wrap up victory in their Unicorns Championship Western Division clash against Oxfordshire at Banbury this morning.
The visitors, who required just 14 more runs today to complete an emphatic triumph, achieved them quickly as first-innings centurion Jayden Levitt (19) added a further boundary to the three he hit in the one over of his side's second innings last night.
Henry Langford added 10, including a boundary, to help his side across the line in the fourth over.
Wiltshire had left themselves just 28 to win after dismissing Oxfordshire in their second innings for just 177 yesterday, Jake Roberts and Ashur Morrison taking three wickets each.
The visiting side, led by Mike Coles had amassed 377, Levitt scoring 152 in reply to Oxfordshire's first-innings 228.
Wiltshire host Norfolk in the quarter finals of the Unicorns Knockout Trophy at Corsham CC on Sunday (11am) and have named a squad of 12, adding Tom Morton to the team that beat Oxfordshire.
Wiltshire squad v Oxfordshire: Michael Coles (Corsham, captain), Tahir Afridi (Henley), Joe Breet (Lechlade), Neil Clark (Potterne), Tom Foley (Corsham), Henry Langford (Brockhampton), Jayden Levitt (Bromsgrove), Adam Miles (Cardiff, wicketkeeper), Ashur Morrison (Corsham), Tom Morton (South Wilts), Jake Roberts (Potterne), Ed Young (Potterne).
