Wycombe chalked up their second successive win in the Home Counties Premier League Division One with a 75-run win over Finchampstead on Saturday.

Their battery of pace bowlers were on top form in Berkshire as they rattled through the Finchampstead line-up.

The home side bowled and fielded well to limit their visitors to 207-9 in 50 overs – with Wycombe skipper Dan Marles making a half-century – but brittle batting in a revised order saw them sent reeling to 71-7, eventually being all out for 132.

They were left a batsman short after opener Greg Smith was taken to hospital after splitting the webbing in his hand while fielding.

Marles elected to bat first when winning the toss and saw his side go along at five runs an over in the first 10 for the loss of Eliot Callis for 13.

Fellow opener Conrad Louth and Lloyd Paternott, both close-season signings from Slough, managed only 13 runs apiece, while Matt Gouldstone went for 10.

Lincoln was repeatedly rotating his six bowlers and it appeared to work with only Zac Jones failing to take a wicket.

They would have enjoyed even more success had they taken their catches, with Marles twice being dropped.

He eventually fell to a catch by Josh Lincoln at mid-on off the bowling of Darron Augustus for a valuable 59, which came off 84 balls. His departure left Wycombe 147-7, but Adam Dobb (26) and Conner Haddow (27) lifted the visitors to 207-9.

With Smith absent, Lincoln shuffled his batting order, promoting Augustus to opener with Tommie Predgen and dropping himself down to number six in the order.

But 20 overs of pace bowling torethe innings apart, with the most successful being Cameron Parsons, who took 4-26 off 10 overs. 

Of the top order, only Billy Rogers (28) made it into double figures while Dan Lincoln was on seven when given out lbw to Parsons, the skipper’s second similar dismissal in successive home games.

There was some late resistance from Simon Bell (21) and Jones (29), but they just delayed the inevitable, with the Finch innings ending on 132-9 in the 31st over.

Wycombe are at home to Buckingham Town on Saturday (11.30am)
