BOYNE HILL 177 all out

defeated by

WINDSOR 4/181
Malloch 61*

Windsor managed to jag a win int he last friendly of the season by knocking off local rivals Boyne Hill at Home Park on Saturday.

Windsor won the toss and sent Boyne Hill in as Windsor looked to get more form chasing targets. Despite a fine start and a lone hand from Pike, Windsor got the better of Boyne Hill as Mohindru (3/35), Nichols (3/54) and Hartridge (2/23) shared the spoils.

An amusing highlight of the innings though was Nichols giving ex Windsor player Tim Smith a lesson on fast bowling! The over included a smashing 4 through cover, followed by a ferocious bouncer that had Smith on the seat of his pants, followed by more of the same for the next 3 balls (including Tim tripping over his feet to square leg!) It concluded with Smiths leg stump being uprooted out of the gorund!

Malloch and Harris looked good in their return to 1st team cricket and Kemp can probably lay claim to being the unluckiest bowler in the TVL not claiming a scalp!

The chase started poorly with Birch, Malloch, Lines and Nichols falling before the scoreboard got to 40! But the middle order of Weston (39*) and Malloch (61*) surveyed conditions well and safely got the home side home with overs to spare. It was the first 100 partnership in the 1st team since 2007! Many more partnerships like that will be required to give the title a shake in 2009.

Windsor plays host to Basingstoke in the first TVL game of the 2009 season and an unchanged line up is hoping to get the title chase off to an impressive start.
