Windsor reach halfway mark unbeatean

Chiswick and Laytmer 142 (Chris Edge 61-4, Amit Subarker 39-4)
Windsor 145-3 (Nigel Wing 50*, Tom Bullock 38*)

Windsor reached the halfway mark of the season still unbeaten as another commanding display in the field setup another comfortable run chase in overcast conditions. With last weeks abandonment meaning Windsor conceded ground to 2nd place Slough the time was ripe for Skipper Chris Edge to win his 2nd toss of the season and go for maximum points against bottom of the league Chiswick. He of course duly lost and Chiswick chose to bat.

An early breakthrough with a good catch at gully from Dave Richies was followed by a freakish dismissal of the other opener Wadhwa as he dragged a long hop onto his stumps. Skipper Longley regrouped the innings aided with some cavalier batting from Tomar to push the score past 60 but after Ashraf pouched a simple catch at mid off to remove Tomar, Edge took an instinctive one handed return catch to remove Longley and Windsor had their tails up. Alex Hill was unlucky to return no wickets but the arrival of Amit Subarker turned the game in Windsors favour. 2 wickets in 2 balls saw inroads into the middle order and Chiswick never recovered. A hostile first bowling spell of the season for Kevin Condon saw him mop up the tail as he and Subarker strangled Chiswick to 145 all out.

Windsor got off to a brisk start with Abdul Ashraf and Rob Noble setting about the attack although the bowling tightend up considerably after Ashraf was dismissed by Bhatia for 8. However, with plenty of overs there was ample opportunity for Rob Noble to settle down with Nigel Wing and simply wait for the bad ball. Noble will have been disappointed not to go on to fifty when he edged a chance to slip on 31 and the removal of Dave Richies for just 1 may have raised Chiswicks hopes. However Sensible batting by Wing and a welcome return from illness from Tom Bullock saw Windsor home with no further loss, Wing completing his fifty just before Windsor passed the total in the 39th over.
