Windsor CC Vs Thatcham match report 19th July

Acting skipper Peter Thompson got off the start he wanted by Winning an

important toss and electing to bat on what looked like a good cricket wicket.

After a good opening stand by Davis and Bird, Davis eventually fell for 20, but

the ever more reliable Bird carried on to a brilliant 73, with the other Windsor

batsman batting well around bird especially Aussie Matt Greene. After a good

cameo partnership at the end of the innings by the classy looking Gould and

Thompson Windsor eventually closed there innings on 192 for 8.

Skipper Thompson at this point concerned that the score would not be enough

turned to the skill and experience of veterans Raul Mohindru and Wayne Spence,

hoping that they could work there spinning magic with the old ball.

What happened next was a fantastic display of controlled slow bowling, old

timers Spence and Mohindru show there class and experience never straying from

there line of length, wickets fell regularly as the Thatcham Batsmen failed to

cope with the accuracy of the bowling, the fielding was also excellent, Skipper

Thompson and Keeper Barney Clifford especially, Clifford his usual brilliant

self behind the stumps taking a sharp catch and very clever stumping and

Thompson taking 2 blinding slip catches. Thatcham had no answer to the Windsor

bowlers eventually Mohindru cleaned bowled the hapless Thatcham number 11

batsman, the jubilant Windsor team taking a well deserved 25 points.
