Wes Nichols falls 1 run short of a well deserved 100
as Windsor knock off Marlow
WINDSOR 9/207 (39 Overs)
Wes Nichols 99


MARLOW 82 (29.2 Over)
Brendan Kemp 4/25

Windsor travelled to Marlow amid dour conditions expecting not to play on Saturday. Showers hovering all night and morning didn’t give much hope of play but a break i the weather did eventuate and the game was reduced to 39/35 affair.

Windsor lost the toss and where sent in and managed to set an impressive 207, amid quite difficult conditions. Sadly Nichols (99) was run out again trying to score his 100th run, and was well supported by Birch (21), Weston (30) and Huggins (31) as they formed crucial partnerships with the skipper, some thing was missing the previous week.

Not expecting to knock the home sides quality batting over in such a small amount of time, Windsor where confident of at least restricting them to the total set. But all that changed when Kemp (4/25) bowled his best spell of the season on the bouncing seaming wicket to cut the heart out of the Marlow top order. With Nichols (2/32) getting the prize scalp of Paskins at the other end and Tom Hartridge (2/12) bowling some genuine gas, Malloch (2/12) was left the wrap up the game for Windsor with 8 5 overs remaining.

Windsor next week play host to the quality Beaconsfield, and must replicate this same kind of effort to keep the run going.
