Hampton Hill 137 All Out off 49.2 Overs (Kellard 4 for 55, Davis 4 for 35)
Windsor 2’s 141 for 4 off 34 Overs (Malik 49, Chana 48)

After a poor loss to Stoke Green the week before, Winsdor needed to get back to winning ways in this TVCL Division 4A encounter. Upon losing the toss, Windsor were asked to bowl first.

Condon and Lazaczuk took the new ball for Windsor and Hampton took great delight in putting any width away. Hampton Hill sped to 45 for 0 after 10 overs, when Davis made a double-switch that had an immediate effect. Windsor’s own Hill bowled well, picking up two wickets including the dangerous Hampton for 43 and Windsor were suddenly on top. After Hill was forced out of the attack with a hamstring strain, the old combination of Davis and Kellard took up the attack. The immediate effect was a slowing of the run rate, with one 10 over period resulting in less than 10 runs. Hampton Hill continued to lose wickets and when the final wicket fell to Kellard, they had been bowled out for 137 inside their 52 overs. Davis and Kellard both finished with 4 wickets a piece.

In reply Windsor quickly lost Nair to a misjudged pull shot. Charters and Chana steadied the ship and took Windsor onto 40, before Charters also fell to the same shot. Malik then entered the fray and with Chana built the partenrship that would see Windsor to victory. Both played well, with Malik striking some characteristically huge lofted drives and Chana striking deft touches for four. Sadly both players fell with their 50’s and the winning line in sight. This left Lines and Lazaczuk to see Windsor home for an impressive 6 wicket win.
