Windsor 2XI vs Chenies and Latimer

After the disappointment of last week against BA, Windsor needed to respond this weekend against Chenies & Latimer who were flying high in second place in the table. Windsor won the toss and with overcast conditions and a slightly green track Windsor chose to field.

Windsor had the rapid new ball bowlers of Chambers and Peacock who bowled superbly with the new ball picking up a couple of wickets and keeping the scoring rate very low from Chenies. Chambers bowled his allotted 7 over’s and was replaced by Hill who kept up the pressure on the Chenies batsmen and at the halfway point they were about 70 for 3. From this restricted position Chenies batted very well and reached 210 for 6 from their 52 over’s.

In reply Windsor got off to a shaky start with Noble dismissed by a good ball early on in the innings. Windsor had a solid second wicket stand of 50 to move the score along with both Davis and Bird looking very fluent. As has often been the case this season with a mixture of good balls and poor shot selection Windsor were reduced from a solid position to 100 for 6. From this position Windsor were looking in a lot of trouble but following on from their solid partnership last week Care and Hill piled on the runs with Hill scoring 36 and Care scoring a superb 54 to bring Windsor in to contention. Their unfortunate dismissals brought Peacock and Chambers to the wicket who with some more classic stroke making got Windsor over the line with 2 overs to spare.

It was a fantastic victory from the position we were in and all credit must go to the lower order for their brilliant effort with the bat to create a memorable victory for Windsor.
