Windsor 1st Team Vs Basingstoke and NHants 2nd Team

Windsor arrived to what looked like a fantastic batting pitch and a very fast outfield. Windsor had planned to bat second if they had won the toss hoping to restrict Basingstoke to a low score then knock the runs off with an aim to take 20 points.

Unfortunately for stand in captain Peter Thompson, the toss was lost and Windsor were asked to bat, things didn’t exactly go to plan with Windsor loosing wickets at regular intervals due to mainly some very good bowling from Basingstoke, one of the top 6 batsmen shone through! Young Mike Gould scoring a brilliant and elegant 50, but Windsor were in trouble still at 100 – 5! Step forward the rear guard with, batting 7 Brian Davies scored a fast and fluent 32, skipper Thompson then batted out the over with veterans Wayne Spence and Ra Mohindru taking the total to 191-9.

Windsor took the field knowing that 191 might not be enough runs on this excellent wicket and ground, skipper Thompson gave instructions to the team and bowlers to keep runs down and build the pressure, fast bowler Griffiths and Granger then produced and brilliant opening spell removing the top 5 batsmen, the fielding was also excellent with one especially brilliant catch by Thompson.

14 overs had gone and although there were 5 wickets down runs were now flowing with chandler taking the bowlers on, at this point Thompson decided to bring on the spin duo of Spence and Mohindru, both bowlers again showed there experience and class taking the important wicket of chandler then removing the tail, giving Windsor a well deserved 25 points.
