AN excellent all-round display from Anupam Sanklecha could not prevent Shipton-under-Wychwood suffering a last-over defeat at Harefield in Home Counties League Division 2 on Saturday.

Sanklecha struck 92 off just 69 balls with two sixes and 11 fours to help the visitors reach 231-8, after opener Andy Hemming had laid the platform with 58.

However, a second-wicket stand of 114 between Matthew Ogden and Dhavalkumar Norotam put Harefield on course for victory.

Sanklecha (3-30) did his best to stem the tide, but the hosts won with four wickets and four balls to spare to send Shipton to their second successive defeat.

After last week’s win over Henley, Great & Little Tew lost by nine wickets at Slough.

Put in to bat, Tew slumped to 49-6 and did well to see out their 50 overs.

Andy Harris led the way with an unbeaten 51 as they battled to 155-8.

Slough, with unbeaten half-centuries from Fahim Qureshi and Lloyd Paternott, got home in the 39th over, despite a top spell of 1-12 from ten overs by left-arm spinner Joe Thomas.
