The fixture against Egham Roses took place at their home ground in front of Windsor Castle. It was the second time we have played them this season, as they memorably stepped in and offered their ground when we were to host them at the double-booked Hampton Wick Royal.
Daisy won the toss and customarily decided that chasing would be a better option and invited Egham to bat first.
Judge and the Godfather opened the bowling; Egham enjoyed a good opening partnership and their first wicket remained in tact until 46 runs were on the board.
Both opening bowlers kept their spells tight subsequently and after their first wicket fell, Egham kept losing wickets at regular intervals, finally managing to post 161 runs all out.
The bowling figures were as follows: Judge 6.18.1; Godfather 126.96.36.199; Creep 188.8.131.52; Sparkie 184.108.40.206; Genie 220.127.116.11; and Assassin 18.104.22.168.
After an excellent tea, Tuffers and the Rabbi opened the batting for the Nomads. Unfortunately Tuffers couldn’t defend a straight one got and bowled out on nothing.
Naresh joined the Rabbi and both played their innings with focus and determination. The Nomads won the match without losing another wicket.
The Rabbi and Naresh battled together for a partnership of more than 162 runs. The Rabbi scored an unbeaten 60 runs while Naresh finished on 96 not out.
