‘Slough Sail to Victory’

Windsor 3rdXI 159 all out

Slough 3rdXI 160 – 5

Slough took their lead from the flotilla of boats sailing along the

River Thames that supplied a glorious back-drop to this TVL clash on

Saturday. They cruised to victory with 5 wickets to spare after thorougly

dominating their neighbours.

Batting first, Windsor struggled to a below par – 159 all out, in the face

of accurate bowling from Sattar. He took 6 – 57 by bowling straight and

full – a combination that was unfortunately too good for Windsor’s top

order. Windsor’s batting this year has been their strength but only

Richard Noble (32) showed the application required as he managed to push

Windsor over 150 mark.

Windsor welcomed Kenny Lawrence back from playing with the electrics in

Toronto and he duly made early in-roads into Slough’s top order. Just as

Kenny was ready to switch off the lights on Slough’s promotion charge, a

giant surge of power was released by Mohsin Khan who struck a lightning 57,

including 18 off one Lawrence over.

Anil Kakaria ensured that Slough reached their target with ease by

remaining unbeaten on 61, as Slough won to remain at the top of the

division, with two games to go.

Windsor travel to Barnes Wild Geese on Saturday, hoping to secure the

victory that will ensure their safety.
