which they dom­i­nated from start to fin­ish.

The Cross bowlers made an im­me­di­ate im­pact af­ter Thame were asked to bat, Jon Den­ning (2-27) and Dan Hamp­ton (3-34) re­mov­ing the top or­der as Thame crum­bled to 34-4.

Will Sut­cliffe of­fered some re­sis­tance be­fore Richard Knud­sen (2-23) trapped him leg be­fore, and then had Mush­taq stumped by Harry Ni­chols. El­liot Green cleaned up the tail to fin­ish with three wick­ets, con­ced­ing just one, from 5.1 overs, four of which were maid­ens, as Thame were all out for 88.

The Cross bats­men were in no mood to grind out vic­tory, and this be­came ev­i­dent when Matt Wat­son (44) hit his first ball for four.

In part­ner­ship with AJ Wood­land (32), an open­ing stand of 80 put the match out of Thame’s reach, be­fore Billy Hunt hit the win­ning runs in the twen­ti­eth over.

The win moved Cross off the bot­tom of the ta­ble, while Amer­sham stayed third af­ter beat­ing As­ton Rowant by 49 runs. Ed­ward Bock­ock posted 76 while Maduka Liyana­p­athi­ran­age and Alex Lines fin­ished with iden­ti­cal fig­ures of 4-42.
