Starting as we mean to go on!
Kew Cricket Club’s first team opened up their Thames Valley League Division One campaign with a crushing 108-run win over Windsor.
Debutant Kamran Younas anchored the innings with a vital 73 as the visitors picked up 20 points in the first round of limited overs fixtures.
The big moment came inside the powerplay as Harry Jordan dropped a sitter when the Pakistani batsman was on just seven.
Poor pull shots from opener Kidron Thomas (37) and Mike Outar (0) left the 2014 champions tottering at 61/3.
And after captain Will Shaw (13) and Guy Darwin (0) were dismissed in quick succession Kew were a long way from a par total at 83/5.
A partnership of 93 between Younas and Lewis Abbott, who fell two runs short of a maiden first team fifty, steadied the ship.
Some lusty lower-order hitting from Sean Abbott (28) and Mike Dunn (21) propelled the Cumbers to a respectable 241.
Two wickets apiece for Younas (2/16), Andy Thorburn (2/22), Ed Taylor (2/3) and S.Abbott (2/2) wrapped up the hosts for 133.
Windsor skipper Justin Grainger showed his intent from ball one as he cut powerfully to the point boundary before nicking off shouldering arms to Dunn (1/30) next ball.
J.Mace and J.Lincoln counter-attacked in a stand of 47, before the former was bounced out by speedster Thomas (1/40), with wicket-keeper L.Abbott sprawling full length on the run to complete the catch.
Kristan Baumgartner survived huge appeals for a caught behind off Darwin before top scoring with 33.
Shane MacDermott sparked a collapse with a diving catch to dismiss J.Clark off Thorburn’s bowling as the hosts capitulated, losing their last six wickets for just 26 runs.
S.Abbott picked up the last two wickets with just four balls of his off-spin to seal victory.
