MATCH REPORT

Windsor travelled the short distance to close neighbours Slough on

Saturday and were put to the sword by a swashbuckling display of batting.

Opting to bat first, Slough accumulated a colossal 272 off only 48 overs as

Windsor’s bowlers suffered a severe case of meltdown in the summer heat.

Windsor made a couple of initial breakthroughs as young debutant Ollie

Smith took a fine low catch behind the stumps and Kevin Clifford pulled off

a stunning one handed slip catch. Things were looking promising for the

Royalists as Slough were 15-2. Thereafter, the runs flowed like champagne

at Royal Ascot. Despite numerous attempts to cork the flow, it soon turned

into a torrent and Windsor made their weary way to tea facing a formidable

272 – 5.

Despite a positive response, Windsor lost wickets on a regular basis

and were never in the race. Rob Dawson (30), Damian Bradbury (42) and Andy

Wigley (29) all attempted to push Windsor to a respectable total, but they

were ultimately soundly beaten by a superior Slough team.

The performances of the youngsters, Ollie Smith & Umer Malik, were huge

bonuses on a day when Windsor’s shortcomings were cruelly exposed by a

ruthless Slough XI.
