Ashraf puts Windsor’s season back on track
OMT 237/9 – Endacott 4-33
Windsor 238/5 – Chorley 59, Ashraf 102
Windsor 3s gripped tightly to the coat tails of the sides above them in division 5, with a victory over OMT, which was more straightforward than the scoreline suggests.
Bowling first on a roasting hot day, Windsor restricted the hosts to 20/3 from the first 14 overs, Waqas Mohammed and Richie Endacott, showing thats it’s not only their wallets they keep tight. However, left handed Winkle took the attack to the visitors and despite a couple of missed chances, raced to a well deserved century. Helping the home side reach 237 from their 49 overs.
The reply was emphatic, with Chorley and centurion Ashraf building a partnership with all but destroyed OMT’s chances. Ashraf’s ton was a mixture of the cultural and sheer brutality, as he took Windsor to within sight of the golden egg. Despite a typical Windsor stutter near the end, Kev Condon saw Windsor home, to keep them in touch with the others.
