1s v Windsor
Windsor were the visitors at the Racecourse Ground, and with the significant amount of rain we had elected to bowl on winning the toss. Initially, Ascot got off to a brisk start and were 43 for 1 but some good bowling and fielding from Ryan Lewin (3 for 9), Ollie Jordan (3 for 31) and Charlie Jackson (3 for 35), Ascot lost wickets in clusters. Falling from 64 for 2 to 66 for 5 and then 96 for 5 to 107 all out. Billy Baker top scored with 21.
Windsor found scoring difficult as well and from 56 for 2 fell to 57 for 5 and then from 72 for 5 to 73 for 8. Charlie Jackson 23 with Mike Lines then saw Windsor to 101 but Jackson fell to Andy Murray. But Mike Lines finished the match in style with a 6 with 22 not out for a close 1 wicket win. Andy Murray finished with the figures of 5 for 27.
2s v Farnham Common 2
The 2s were on the road at Farnham Common. Again a weather influenced toss saw the 2s elect to bowl first. Runs were again difficult and despite 30 from opener Andrew Davies, were restricted to 94 all out as Tim Howson took 5 for 28 aided by two great catches from James Docker and Jason Carr with 3 for 8.
In response Ascot took their time with Gary Clarke top scoring with 35. Despite Sami Niese’s 4 for 31, Ascot were able to get over the line for the loss of 5 wickets.
3s v Eversley 3
The 3s made the trip to Hampshire and visited Eversley 3s. Ascot won the toss and elected to bowl but unlike the 1s and 2s matches, batting was much easier. Billy White (60 not out) and Will Perkin (56) saw Eversley reach a very competitive total of 221 for 5 off 39 overs.
In reply, Ascot were unable to keep up with the run rate despite Satpal (38), Dan Mallett (25) and Saria Muhammad (27) as Ascot were bowled out for 155 all out. Billy White took the match award with 5 for 11 in addition to his unbeaten half century.
4s v Kidmore End 3
At Locks Ride, the 4s won the toss and elected to bowl first. Kidmore End scored heavily on the back of Jay Rathore (65), Nish Rajmohan (58), Jonny Abbott (35) and Mahiman Rathore (34 not out) to get 224 for 5 off 34 overs.
In the end it was too much for the 4s to chase and despite Neal Feely’s 59 not out, Ascot ended on 134 for 5.
