With a win required to guarantee the TVL 2A title, Windsor hosted Bagshot who on the back of consecutive wins, where full of running and confidence. With Nichols winning the toss, Windsor decided to bat on a wicket that might break up, as the game progressed.
San Jose who in his 2nd crack at topping the order failed, meaning Nichols and Birch where able to renew their consistent partnership. When Birch (69) departed, the pair had put on 117, and a big total was looking a chance. Huggins and Nichols then got together and as they have done to many sides this season, scored freely. Nichols closing in on a 100 then got a leading edge to mid off to fall for 97, but the work was well and truly done as Huggins (37) closed out the innings for Windsor and after 52 overs where 235/5.
Windsor could smell the league title, and knew if they could get 10 wickets would clinch it. Windsor then set about taking those 10 wickets as Harris (7/69) used the home conditions to his advantage as Nichols (2/29) now on one leg, hobbled in support at the other end. With Mohindru (1/7) getting in the act, there where scenes of jubilation as Windsor had claimed the title!!
The champagne flowed in the dressing rooms and that night as Windsor celebrated winning the league with 2 games to spare! Windsor now have a 74 point lead from 2nd place. That’s a fair reflection of Windsors dominance in this competition. The league tables doesn’t lie, they have been far and away the best side in the league.
Windsor travel to Finchamptead next week and will looking to blood some colts in the next 2 games as they prepare for life in Division 1.
