HUNDREDS from Edmund Casterton and Dan Marles were not enough for High Wycombe to win at Aston Rowant in Division One of the Home Counties Premier League on Saturday.

High Wycombe won the coin toss and chose to bat first at Butts Way, the visitors reaching 276-5 declared after 61 overs.

Opening batsman Casterton was the leading runs scorer with 115 from 172 balls, including 17 boundaries and one maximum hit. It is his third century of the season and takes his average to 53.33.

Captain Marles made an unbeaten 103 from 144 balls, with 12 boundaries, for his third ton of the summer, increasing his average to 55.77. He and Casterton put on 196 runs in a second-wicket partnership.

James Fitzjohn was the pick of the Aston Rowant bowlers with his figures of 2-33 from four overs, whilst Gordon Harris claimed 2-52 from 10 overs.

The home side managed 271-8 from 59 overs in response to frustrate their visitors and hold on for a losing share of the points.

Number five Christopher Watling top-scored with 57 runs from 76 balls, including five boundaries. It is his second half-century of the season and takes his average to 24.38.

Thomas Condon made 53 at a run a ball, with 10 boundaries, for his fifth half-century of the summer and an increased average of 25.61.

Fellow opening batsman George Reid added 51 from 89 balls, including six boundaries. It is his first half-century of the season and takes his average to 32.50. Reid and Condon put on 88 runs for the first wicket.

Adam Dobb led the High Wycombe bowling attack with his figures of 3-71 from 18 overs. Dobb was backed up by Conner Haddow, who took the wickets of Condon and Watling in his 3-84 from 16 overs.

The draw means High Wycombe have dropped one place to fourth position in the league table ahead of a visit from Tring Park this Saturday (11am start).
