Khan played the anchor role not once but twice as he contributed heavily to the victory.

A maiden century for Bucks in the first innings saw Khan finally dismissed for 133.

With an achievable target of 179 to win, Khan again dug in and helped take his side to victory, still being there unbeaten on 75 at the end.

The left handed batsman discussed his own performance but was also keen to reflect how well the team had done.

It’s obviously a huge sense of relief to get my first 100 for Buckinghamshire but I’m more delighted for the team to get that important win.

From Jonathan Burden’s five-for in the first innings to Robin (Pritchard) making a quick-fire 24 to help us get over the line, everyone contributed in some shape or form to get the win. It’s great to see everyone enjoying my success, that’s the sign of a true team and I feel the team is going from strength to strength from when I first joined last season.

Although he made his maiden century for the county, his second knock proved to mean a lot too.

My second innings might just be one of my most memorable innings I’ve ever played. I’ve always wanted to play a match winning innings and I was delighted that I could get us over the line. The plan was to just bat time, we knew as a team that if we batted long enough we would get to the total. After a few hiccups along the road and some nervy moments I’m just delighted we go to Tring with 3 wins from 5 and mathematically a chance to still finish top.

Bucks are currently fifth in the table with one game to play.
