Oxfordshire made a disastrous start to their Minor Counties Championship Western Division campaign as they crashed to 54 all out in their second innings against Cheshire at Great & Little Tew to lose by 135 runs.

After battling to a first-innings lead of six runs, Oxon bowled Cheshire out for 195 second time around with skipper Luke Ryan (5-73) and fellow left-arm spinner Francois Vainker (4-73) doing the damage.

But then Oxon caved in against the bowling of paceman Adam Syddall (6-23) and left-arm spinner Dan Woods (4-31) for a humiliating defeat.

Scores: Cheshire 233 & 195 (C Tipper 78, L Ryan 5-73), Oxfordshire 239 (J Cater 61, J Williams 6-80) & 54 (A Syddall 6-23).
