AN UNBEATEN opening stand of 182 saw Oakley to an impressive 10-wicket victory away at Amesbury in Hampshire Cricket League County Division Four North.

Dan Sumner took 4-43 as the hosts were restricted to 181-9 batting first, and the same player then took on a starring role with the bat as well.

Both Sumner and fellow opener Gerry Dique ended unbeaten on 83 as visiting Oakley cruised to victory.

Tom Trinder made 69 as Whitchurch were restricted to 167-8 at home to Bishop's Waltham II. However, the visitors found batting just as difficult, just about creeping over the line to win by one wicket.

Hook and Newnham Basics II remain fourth in Division One after a three-wicket win away at Portsmouth and Southsea.

Ollie May took 4-30 as the hosts were dismissed for 172 and while Hook lost seven wickets, they got over the line for victory, thanks in no small part to a captain's knock of 64 from Matt McNally.

Old Basing got the better of local rivals Basingstoke and North Hants III and they sit fourth in Division Two as a result.

Nick Cooper took 4-33 as the Bountymen were bowled out for 160 batting first and while Ashley Neal finished with figures of 4-29, visiting Old Basing were guided to a four-wicket victory by Greg Donaldson, who made an unbeaten 48.

It was a bad day for north Hampshire teams in Division Three North East.

Hobos were knocked off the top after their trip to bottom side AWE Tadley was called off, while Hartley Wintney II and Overton both lost.

Will Ross and William Kerr took two wickets each as Hartley restricted Fair Oak II to 230-7, but the hosts were bowled out for 200 in reply.

Overton were dismissed for 159 away at Liss, a target that the home team chased down to win by three wickets.

Hook and Newnham Basics III sit fourth after their trip to South Newton was rained off.
