BASINGSTOKE 68/4

Windsor travelled to Basingstoke on the weekend in dour conditions hoping but not expecting a full days play to extend their lead in the TVL.

The weather was holding out amid grey skies and upon winning the toss, Nichols opted to bat. It was an interesting innings of 3 thirds as Gould (58) and Birch (48) stacked on the runs as the drizzle began to sleet down. This then made conditions quite difficult to bat as Windsor then went on to lose 6 for 35! With the ball seaming everywhere, Windsor found it hard as the sleet started to pour down. From here though, the ball got water-logged which meant Weston (50*), who was superb and in a timely return to form Hartridge (23) managed to take back the advantage. San Jose (33*) came out and played his most mature innings of the season thus far, to push the total to 229/7.

After a basic tea, Windsor then looked to attack and had the home team in trouble early on. With Nichols (3/28) knocking over the top order supported by Harris (1/10), Windsor were confident they could secure another 25pt win, but with the constant drizzle now causing concern with the umpires, Windsor had to settle for a 12pt draw in the 23rd over and rue what could have been, had the elements been kinder.

Windsor play host to Chiswick on the weekend, and will be looking for a good performance to extend their lead in the TVL.
