Cross crash out Home Counties title race
GERRARDS Cross CC crashed down to third place in the Home Counties Division Two West table and virtually waved goodbye to their title chances with another damaging defeat on Saturday.
They lost a rain-affected game with Cove by five wickets, allowing Oxford to move 37 points clear at the top. Aston Rowant have also gone above them with their win at Dinton.
Cross led the table comfortably less than a month ago, but three losses in succession have left Steve Rimmer's team with virtually no chance of making up the ground now.
They'd need to win both their remaining two matches and hope Oxford lose both theirs, while also hoping Aston Rowant slip up.
Cross batted first against Cove but were dismissed for just 147 with Pratik Patel (35) and Rimmer (28) top scoring.
In reply, Cove chased down a revised target of 87 in 20 overs with 15 balls to spare.
Meanwhile, High Wycombe's Division One match at North Mymms was off due to bad weather.
