Fourth Team Beaten At Datchet
By James Wheeler
A long trip to Windsor to play Datchet was in store for the Fourth Team last weekend. Late drop outs meant the Fourth Team played with only 10 men. Captain Andy Grout won the toss and on a hot day, decided to bat first.
This backfired to a degree as accurate bowling and a pitch where the ball stuck in the wicket ensured we never really got going and ended up 107 all out. Dick Highton top scored with 20 and half the team were out to similar shots , caught playing the shot too early.
Datchet chased it down fairly easily losing just the one wicket to Krishna Kumar, well caught by Ben Bezani. We actually bowled ok but fair play to Datchet and the setting in the shadow of Windsor Castle was very pleasant!
