Left-arm spinner Shaikh bagged a match haul of seven wickets and scored 148.

Resuming Day Three at 13 for no loss in their second innings, Oxford were bowled out for just 53 as Anjuman's spin pair of Mushir Khan (5-9) and Farhan breezed through the opposition batting line-up to hand Anjuman a massive win.

In the first innings, Oxford were bowled out for 189, with Farhan bagging five wickets for 32. In the second stint he contributed with two wickets.

Farhan said he enjoyed his batting as much as his bowling.

"My coach advised me to stay on the wicket and keep strike. I enjoyed my batting more than bowling," said the 13-year-old.
