Rubbish

Windsor 119 (Huggins 63*)
Aldershot 120-2 (Mumby 72)

Windsor produced a substantially below par performance in a rain affected game at Aldershot on Saturday. Things didn’t bode well as Farnborough Air Show traffic delayed the majority of the teams arrival although heavy rain had set in to see the start significantly delayed and when play did get underway Windsor elected to bat first in a reduced 40-36 over game.

Windsor never recovered from losing Kevin Condon in the 2nd over and with the exception of Paul Huggins whose watchful defence and good use of the front foot drive none of Windsor’s batsman ever looked settled. Most threw their wickets away looking for demons in the pitch with loose strokes and bad judgements with none following Huggins determined knock. Windsor even then committed the cardinal sin of not even using up their allotted overs as they were dismissed for 119 in the 39th over with Huggins carrying his bat for a gritty 63 not out.

Although Windsor made early inroads to the Aldershot attack with Birch claiming a wicket in the 3rd over it was determined good hard hitting from Aldershots Mumby that took the game away. Ruthless on anything short or full he dispatched the seamers out of the game and made the same inroads into the spin duo of Abe Smith. Windsor’s fielding resembled schoolboy stuff as catches we spilt and runs leaked and although Sam Condon had success in removing Mumby the game was as good as up as Aldershot comfortably reached the target in just 18 overs.
