MATCH DRAWN

‘Akbar the main attraction’

The Queen recently visited Legoland to promote tourism, however

she missed another attraction right on her doorstep – Windsor Cricket Club.

If she had taken a stroll to the Home Park on Saturday, she would have seen

tourists being regally entertained by a local 17 year old – Zeeshan Akbar.

Batting first on a day made for stokeplay, Zeeshan made the most of a Baize

batting strip, coupled with a Ferrari outfield.

He has an impressive all round game which he exhibited on Saturday. His

gallery of strokes included a towering straight six ; a beguiling back foot

cover drive ; a cheeky sweep and several mid wicket flicks. Zeeshan

stroked a masterpiece of an innings in accumulating 104 out of a total of

206 – 6.

Hurst 2’s were stifled in their quest to overhaul Windsor’s

total, as the wiggle ball was launched with devastating accuracy by Andy

Wigley. Wigley picked up a wicket with his first delivery and captured

five victims, all clean bowled. Hurst were indebted to the durability of

opener Terry Hall who hit a responsible 52 whilst the wickets tumbled at

the other end. Long after the tourists had departed, the game reached an

unsatisfactory conclusion as Hurst finished on 152 – 8.

The game finished at 8.35 pm, 7 hours after it commenced. This is

something that the league needs to consider as the lifeblood of the game –

the youngsters – are going to turn their back on playing a game that lasts

7 hours without a winner.
