WINDSOR 128

In a much needed wake up call, Windsor where comprehensively out played by a far superior Datchet side over the weekend. Upon losing the toss, Windsor toiled for their first 52 over stint of the season in the field and struggled to penetrate on the fabulous batting pitch.

Only Mohindru (4/45) could get momentum as Tilly (97) anchored the home sides innings in a real skippers knock as as Harris (2/75) and Nichols (1/38) chimed in the the other scalps.

Windsor needed someone in the top 4 to get a 100 but sadly Birch (17), Nichols (33), Nair (19) and Huggins (22) all got starts but were not good enough to go on with it. Windsors feeble under belly was brutally exposed as another pathetic middle/lower order performance then lost 7/25 to succumb to their 2nd loss of the season. It was a case of Windsor lying down and players not putting a very high price on their wicket.

Windsor frailty against spin was also highlighted as Aldiss (5/44) and Tilley (4/74) had a field day against a clueless bottom half.

Apart from the performance of Mohindru, the only highlight of the game was the great banter and spirit between the two sides after the game, as both sides drank together till dark. Even if it meant seeing all the Datchet lads in matching underwear.

Windsor travel to Basingstoke who are 2nd on the ladder, and will need to put this dire performance behind them if they are going to compete against one of the better sides in the league.
