Windsor winning run continues

Chalfont St Peter 129 (Millman 17-4,)

Windsor 130-2 (Ashraf 58*)

Windsor completed their sixth straight win in another comprehensive win over Chalfont St Peter. Losing the toss Windsor were asked to field and as so often has occurred this season, Chris Edge and Warren Griffiths worked superbly in partnership as they removed both openers early and turned the screw on Chalfont with them reeling at 16-2 after ten overs. The heat was clearly getting to Chalfont batsman Hewson who after playing and missing at series of balls attempted to ‘talk-the-talk’ to seamer Warren Griffiths. However in the next over he clearly couldn’t ‘walk-the-walk’ as Griffiths effortlessly dislodged his middle stump.

The introduction of Oliver Birch brought two wickets with two balls in his first over with Cartledge playing a ‘hit-out-before-I-get-out’ innings caught low down by Smith and then Raza, considering his sides perilous position decided to hit out from ball one, and only succeeded in presenting a dolly to Richard Charters at Mid-on.

Stuart Millman turned the screw as Chalfont captain Peters and Laubster attempted to rebuild the innings from 89-6. 18 overs later of dour cricket saw them crawl to 113 and once Peters picked out Alex Hill at cover, Chalfonts tail end did the decent thing and rolled over with Millman dismissing the final 3 batsman in the same over to see Chalfont all out for 129.

As innings had finished too early for tea, Windsor had to negotiate a tricky 15 overs before the break and under orders not to lose any wickets the opening pair of Richard Noble and Abdul Ashraf completed their job to see Windsor to 27-0. After tea the steady start continued and it looked as though Windsor would complete a 10 wicket win however, Noble presented a caught and bowled back to Raza and Tim Smith after hitting a quickfire 25 including a six and 3 fours was undone again by Raza. It was left to Abdul Ashraf, competing a deserved unbeaten half century and Rob Dawson to see Windsor home and enjoy the rest of the afternoon sunshine.

The season now comes down to the nitty gritty with 4 games to go 4 sides are all in with a shout of promotion. Each game is critical now and the outcome for Windsor will depend if they can stay injury free and continue the good form that has elevated them to third place.
