OXFORD University beat Cambridge by 56 runs in the one-day Varsity Match at Lord's.

Half-centuries from George Hargrave (59) and Jei Diwakar (52) helped the side to victory at the home of cricket.

Oxford elected to bat and, despite slipping to 28-3, posted 227-9 from their 50 overs, thanks to a fourth-wicket partnership of 91 between Hargrave and Diwakar.

Cambridge made a strong start in reply, but slipped from 54-0 to 74-5 as they were eventually dismissed for 171 in the 44th over.

Matthew Fanning (3-30) and Freddie Foster (3-31) starred with the ball for Oxford.
