Windsor CC 1st Team Vs Thatham Town CC 1st Team @ Home Park

On a typical Windsor wicket with overcast conditions acting Skipper lost the toss again and was asked to bat this didn’t cause to much concern as Thompson would have batted if he had won the toss.

Thompson’s instructions to his batsmen were to work hard and focus on batting in partnerships looking for a score of 200 +, things didn’t exactly go to plan with wickets falling at regular intervals, scoring runs was also hard do to very accurate bowling and good captaincy by the Thatcham skipper, Craig Bird did bat very well showing great resistance and composure ending up with a brilliant ton, Windsor ending up on 181 – 9 which Thompson thought was 30 runs short.

Windsor started with the old ball and the all seam attack of Griffiths and Granger after a steady start by the batsmen nothing appeared to be happening so the new ball was taken, immediately the ball started to do a little more and Griffiths who had been bowling very accurately got the 1st break through but Thatcham looked in control and were always ahead of the run rate, Windsor didn’t give up though with accurate bowling from Mohindru and a great second spell of fast bowling from Granger, as the game ebbed and flowed Windsor started to take control taking 5 wickets for 9 runs and all of a sudden 25 points looked possible with Thatcham 160 – 9 need 22 to win, unfortunately for Windsor the Thatcham last 2 battled hard and some good hits got them to the Windsor total.

Everybody agreed it was a great game and exactly how cricket should be played.
