Pace Pair Devastate OMT

By August 16, 2011January 13th, 2012No Comments

Windsor travelled away this week to play against OMT on their new ground. We were all really impressed with the new facilities and at first glance the track looked like a batting paradise. On losing the toss and being put into bat we were not too concerned, and were looking forward to batting on what appeared to be a hard deck. 47 over’s later and after being bowled out for 138 we thought that our first opinion of the track may not have been accurate with the only batsmen who could really hold their head up being Mark Lines with a knock of 30.

After tea we knew we needed to make inroads into the OMT batting line up quickly, and an early wicket a piece from Peacock and Chambers reduced OMT to 15 for 2, from their OMT worked hard to get themselves back into the game and managed to have a couple of small partnerships to take the score to 80 for 4. From there we knew we were facing an uphill battle but with Kurth plugging away from the one end, and the pace combination from the other end of Peacock and Chambers, we started to pick up a couple of wickets, which then turned into a landslide of wickets and in the end we managed to bowl out OMT for 104. Chambers bowled superbly and took a 5 wicket haul, and was very well supported with Peacock taking 3 wickets and Kurth taking the remaining 2.

It was a supreme effort in the field to come back and win the game, and a lot of credit must be given to the bowlers for their performance to turn the game around. We also fielded very well and held the big chances to make sure that we took an unlikely victory. We need to work hard on our batting this week and our concentration, to make sure that we continue this good run in the second half of this season and keep putting pressure on the teams above us to cling to an outside hope of a spot in the top two.
