The Third XI are in the Cherwell Cricket League Division 9, playing their home games at Lord Williams’ Upper School. Vimal Desai (pictured right) is the Third XI captain.
The Third XI is used as a progression into Men’s cricket for youth players, and is a step up from the Fourth XI. Like the Fourths, the Thirds features some seasoned cricketers, while also taking on Second team players dropping down on occasions.
Last year, the team pushed hard for promotion throughout the season, until those hopes were dashed with a final day defeat.
