Windsor lack killer instinct

Windsor 245-3 Dec. (R.W. Noble 70, T Bullock 65*)

Kidmore End 214-6

Due to severe problems with availabilities last weekend, Windsor 2’s travelled to Kidmore End with 7 changes and showed the strength in depth of the club by dominating in almost all areas against Kidmore End but just lacked the killer instinct to claim all 25 points as Kidmore happily played out for a draw.

Vice Captain Rob Noble, standing in for normal captain Chris Edge who was playing with double break in a finger, won the toss and elected to bat, and almost straight away this proved to be the right decision. Noble and Paul Huggins resumed their opening partnership and once again saw off the new ball to put Windsor in a commanding position. Runs ran freely throughout the field although this was as much in part to Kidmore’s poor fielding as Windsor’s good batting. After Huggins departed for 39, Rob Noble and Abdul Ashraf continued the good scoring and after Ashraf was bowled by Khaner, this set the mantle for Tom Bullock to make the best of his free scoring ability as he put the Kidmore bowlers to the sword. Both he and Noble made deserved half centuries, and after fifty overs Windsor were able to declare on 245-3.

A prolonged period of drizzle saw the restart delayed slightly when it did it saw Chris Edge remove both openers in the first 10 overs and Windsor were in the box seat. There followed a period of consolidation for Kidmore with Nawaz and Clarke batting well although these both fell to the bowling changes of spin from Amit Subarker and the very part time Rob Noble. However, these two quick wickets lead to the fall of another 2 from the same pair and this effectively ended the game as a contest as Kidmore on 146-6 with 14 overs to go gave up the ghost. The spin of Noble and Subarker continued with some over attacking fields trying to get them back into the game but after passing 200 in the penultimate over Windsor left the final over to 4th team batsman Ben Lickley to bowl and he was extremely unfortunate not to have had Jones caught when attempting to pass his fifty mark.
