Windsor 2’s vs NPL Teddington 2’s
NPL Teddington 210-8
Windsor went into Saturdays game chasing big points as they looked to maintain there fading promotion hopes. Windsor won the toss and batted first as they went in search of 25. Things started badly though as Ashraf departed early. However, this only brought the fit again Huggins and Smith together at the crease. What followed was a flurry of strokes as the two added 170 for the second wicket. Smith been particularly brutal with some towering sixes. Smith was the first to go when he was bowled for a superb 106. Huggins soon followed when he was also bowled for 62. However, Windsor were well on there way to a substantial total. Contributions from the middle order of Bullock, Charters and O’Shannessy saw Windsor finish on 262 from their 52 overs.
In reply Teddington’s innings got off to a disastrous start as they quickly found themselves 40 for 4 with O’Shannessy the chief destroyer removing three of the top 4. From that point onwards Teddington lost any interest in chasing Windsors total no matter how batsman friendly the bowling became as the game looked to be heading towards a boring draw from very early in the game. As the overs ran out Windsor again turned to pace with Edge and O’Shannessy picking up wickets. A tense finish was on as NPL found themselves eight down with four overs remaining. However, it wasn’t to be for Windsor as Teddington held on for the draw finishing on 210 for 8 despite never really chasing the total. The result looks to have left Windsor facing another season in 4B as rivals Teddington Town picked up 25 points
