Dragons escape Slaying

Windsor were at home to Wycombe Dragons on Saturday with Wycombe situated 3rd in the table and Windsor 4th, it was a must win game for both teams to stay in the hunt for promotion. Windsor won the toss and with overcast skies, a green deck and the promise of rain, Windsor opted to field first.

We opened the bowling with Chambers and Peacock who bowled superbly and with some good catches by Lines, Care and Hill, the choice to field first proved to be the right decision with Wycombe quickly reduced to 25 for 5. With Chambers 7 over’s complete, Hill came on and took another wicket to reduce Wycombe to 40 for 6 and that’s when the heavens opened. Unfortunately the rain persisted for an hour and 50 minutes of the maximum 2 hour rain delay. With 10 minutes to go the rain ceased but the square was underwater and the game was unfortunately abandoned.

This was an extremely disappointing end to the game with Windsor in such a strong position. Unfortunately the weather was not so bad in other places and both BA and Chenies played and won, which sadly puts our hopes of promotion out of the window for this season. Windsor can only go into the last two weeks to look to secure third which would still be a very good achievement with the poor run of results we had midway through the season. We have had a really strong run since the end of June and it would be good to continue this with two more victories against Chesham and Farnham Common.
