Having spent Monday afternoon practising in the snow we were all pleased to see the sun come out to play yes-terday (although it was very cold and rained for 30 mins when we fielded).
We made the long trip to Windlesham which has to be one of the more scenic grounds on the circuit. Windlesham batted first in a 25 over match and once again we made a good start picking up 2 early wickets through Ali and Joe to leave Windlesham on 13/2 but a similar story unfolded to last week as we lost rhythm in our bowling as they moved to 75 for 2 off 14 overs. We did manage to pick up 3 further wickets through Ali,
Jacob and Ben but conceding almost 40 Extras never helps the cause. Windlesham finished on 143/5.
Our innings started slowly as we ticked along at a run a ball for the first 7 overs as Windlesham bowled very well. Jacob played well for 15 before being bowled, Joe looked very comfortable when batting playing the ball with soft hands before a miscommunication led to him being run out, Luca put bat to ball when he was given the chance to score 14*. In end we didn’t get near their total but on the plus side we were not bowled out as we finished 71/9, so you could say we hung on for a draw. All our batsman play straight which is fantastic we now just need to put the bad ball away when given a chance. IP
Team: Jacob (Capt), Jamie H, Ben C, Karan, Luca, Joe, Charlie, Louis, Liban, Sam, Ali
