Comfortable Afternoon for Windsor!
Maidenhead 4’s 175 for 9; 52 Overs
Windsor 4’s 177 for 3; 35 Overs (Saunders 76, Martin 49)
On a overcast day, with the constant threat of rain on the horizon, stand in captain Charles Light, won the toss and decided to put M&B in to bat on a dry Windsor wicket. With the normal opening bowling pair injured and on holiday, Khanna & Woodward did the honours keeping things tight and each taking a early wicket, before Khan came to the crease and hit an agricultural 60 to get the M&B innings moving. Following his departure, wickets were shared, including a misely 10-4-12-2 from Martin, and the away side limped to a below par 175 for 9 off their 52 overs.
In reply Windsor faltered at first losing Lickley and Woodward early, until Saunders & Martin steadied the ship. Saunders (76) especially showing a good variety of strokes, along with steady accumulation by Martin (49*) brought the home side to the brink of victory, until the improving colt was caught behind trying another big shot, bringing in Houghton, to see Windsor home.
