Windsor seamers can stand the heat

Maidenhead and Bray III 109 all out, 32 overs
Windsor III 110 for 1, 18.1 overs

While England’s footballers were struggling in the heat on Saturday, Windsor 3s showed no signs of wilting and powered to an impressive victory over a young Maidenhead and Bray side. After struggling to bowl sides out recently Windsor elected to bowl first after winning the toss. What might have seemed a strange decision on such a hot day and a flat wicket proved to be the right one. Paceman Kemp blew away Maidenheads top order with some fiery and accurate bowling. Supported well at the other end by veteran seamer Endacott and the wily Rob Hodgson, Maidenhead were dismissed for just 109 despite some resistance from a stubborn tail.

Feeling refreshed after tea Windsor got off to a good start until the captain Dawson was bamboozled by a big turning off break. That bought Andrew Chorley to the crease who finished the game off with some lusty blows. Windsor eventually cruised to victory in just 18 overs with Ashraf the other unbeaten batsmen. They will be looking to build on this impressive victory against bottom side Hampton Hill this weekend.
