FRIENDLY Windsor Great Park 261-4 (39 overs) KENSINGTON 81 all out (22.2 overs)
KENSINGTON divided in half in the hope they would conquer - and came a cropper in both games played simultaneously on Sunday.
The thinly-stretched squads meant the only consolations in the matches against Old Westminsters and Windsor Great Park were the
fantastic teas offered by the hosts.
But the food for thought was whether double fixtures, with a number of players unavailable, was worth the heartburn of big defeats.
At Windsor, San Gore's team spent the afternoon 'leatherhunting' according to the captain, and when it came to their turn to bat, they were 10-3 and staring down the barrel.
Gore and Sumaer Amar made a go of getting the score up to respectable standards, but once they were out in successive overs, the game was up in all senses.
FRIENDLY Old Westminsters 247 all out (50 overs) KENSINGTON 170 all out (36.4 overs)
IN THE second Kensington game, Gabriel Thomas gave it everything in taking 5-55 with his almost
unplayable left-arm spin. Had it been in their power, the west Londoners would have cloned the Aussie to the power of 10 as everyone else got clobbered all over the park.
However, Kensington gave it a go in their innings, with Kamal Prabhakar (41), and Tim Keleher (40), among the runs, and Rohan Gosh not far behind on 31.
But although these three were in form, a diluted team meant Westminsters were able to wrap up the win long before the end.
