Wes Nichols 100*

In a lively match where over 500 runs where scored in 100 overs of cricket, Windsor just fell short in there run chase by 20 odd runs on Saturday.

Having won the toss, the skipper sent Datchet in when Kemp and Hartridge reaffirmed their new ball status. Nichols having his first roll off the long run of the season ably supported Mohindru (3/41) as Windsor kept Datchet to a par total on that pitch.

The run chase got off to a dreadful start with a wicket lost in the first over, and it wasn’t until Malik and Nichols (100*) joined at the crease in the 17th over, any resistance was shown. Sadly though Windsor struggled to find anyone to bat with the skipper for any length of time as Malik (26), San Jose (22), Hartridge and Kemp fell when partnerships where required to be any chance of chasing down the score in the last half of the innings.

Windsor probably needed to be more enthusiastic in the field as Datchet piled on run on a supreme batting surface.

Next week sees 1st team regulars Malloch and Harris available. Windsor plays host to Boyne Hill where the mistakes with the bat of the previous 2 weeks hope to be remedied.
