Cambridgeshire won by an innings on the second day.
Gray played a major role in the Cambridgeshire win, taking 13 wickets in the match for 83 runs, which was statistically the third best match bowling performance of the season.
He took 7 for 39 in the Oxfordshire first innings and scored 61.
Rich scored 50.
The two put on over fifty for the Cambridgeshire seventh wicket.
Reports of the game suggest that Gray bowled very fast, and several Oxfordshire players were hit, including Holloway who had to retire for a while when struck on the arm.
The substitute catch in the Oxfordshire second innings was held by A C Fuller.
[Missing: Part fall of wickets; in Cambridgeshire inns boundaries in Gray's 61 and Rich 50; time completed.]
