Windsor Stumble at BA

By August 2, 2011January 13th, 2012No Comments

On the back of several impressive performances and a good run of results for Windsor, we travelled away to BA this weekend.

Windsor won the toss and chose to bat. Openers Noble and Bird got Windsor off to a fine start with a partnership of 40, with Bird looking in particularly impressive form. Noble was finally dismissed for the first time in the return leg of fixtures, but Bird continued to bat well and was ably supported by both Davis and Malik for the second and third wicket respectively. Bird was finally out for an impressive 60. Windsor were set to really kick on and build a very big total, but with a flurry of wickets Windsor were quickly reduced to 140 for 8. Hill and Care then came to the wicket and batted superbly for a 50 partnership which enabled Windsor to finish on 196 for 9.

After the usual great BA tea, Windsor took to the field to attempt to bowl BA out. A couple of quick wickets had BA 60 for 2 but from there Windsor let the game slip with some poor fielding to allow BA to get comfortably home for 5 wickets down. With some more luck with umpiring decisions and some better fielding the game could of been a lot tighter but unfortunately it was not meant to be and BA ran out comfortable winners in the end.
