FINCHAMPSTEAD 45
Ben Harris 7/32

Windsor played host to Finchampstead on the weekend and with both side filling 2 of the top 3 spots on the ladder, a tough encounter was expected. Nichols happily won the toss and batted first in quite warm conditions.

After the side came back from skippers Stag in Brighton the day before, the team was most pleased with the result. Non more than the skipper, who could be said, still had the shakes…

Sadly though that’s as good as it got for Windsor in the first part of the game, as they lost 4 wickets for 9 runs inside 5 overs! Luckily for them Birch (47) and Malloch (55) steadied the ship and a score of 200+ would have been on the cards if Windsors lower order could have found someone to hang around with Kemp (14*). In the end they had to settle for 170 off 38 overs.

Windsor then looked to attack from the get go with Nichols (3/7) knocking over both openers inside 3 overs. It was then left to Ben Harris (7/32) to dominate the game providing a masterclass in off-spin bowling to hand Windsor a 25 pt win.

Windsor next week take on local rivals Datchet. Windsor must do alot better with the bat if they are going to be any chance of competing with this very strong Datchet side.
