A DRAMATIC Kingston Bagpuize collapse handed Bicester and North Oxford a nervy four-run victory to go fourth in Cherwell Cricket League Division Three.

James Rimmer struck a fine 72 for Bicester but the only others to reach double figures were Kevin Hicks (22) and Ryan Moore (14) to leave Kingston chasing a modest 148 to win.

They appeared to be cruising to victory at 134-6 but a superb spell of bowling from Richard Simpson (5-34) sparked a collapse which saw the visitors lose four wickets for nine runs.
