BASINGSTOKE & NHT’s 6/140 (43 Overs)

Windsor lost their first game of the season in the TVL to Basingstoke on the weekend. Batting first they had to endure some disciplined bowling on what could on be described as a very sub-par pitch, that incidentally got very low marks from both skippers and umpires!!!

Nichols (14) and Malik (18) laboured to get the score to 51 after 26 overs! Before Kemp (42*), Weston (30) and George (13*) managed to take advantage of some wickets in hand to get a competitive 137 on the board.

Windsor had to take all their chances to win and Nichols (2/31) and Harris (3/57) had the visitors on the ropes at 4/25 after 6 overs, and a courageous defence looked a chance. But they missed a crucial opportunity to make that 5/30 and that was really it in the end as the Basingstoke batters took the life given and guided the side amid difficult batting conditions to the target with 4 overs remaining and 4 wickets in hand.

The fact that only 270 runs where scored in 90 odd overs tells the story, as 137 was a defendable score on the up and down pitch, but Windsor needed to be perfect in the field , and they weren’t, as such fully deserved to lose to the better side.

Windsor travel to Chiswick next week and hope to get the seasons first win under their belt.
