Chairman’s Choice got the better of Govani Maestros in the latest match at Upminster’s Windmill Whack competition last night.

The defending champions had beaten Apple Finance Firebirds in their first match, with Maestros also victorious against the same opposition, and saw Shahbaz Butt smash two sixes and eight fours in a 20-ball 50 before retiring out.

Ollie Peck fell cheaply, but Tom Billinghurst added 46 off 37 deliveries and Terry Wyatt cleared the rope five times in his 45 off 26 balls.

Choice closed on 186-4, as Ryan Brown (2-62) nabbed a brace of wickets, and Govani saw Brentwood’s James Redwood (24) put on 41 with captain Alan Ison before falling to Scott Fisher.

Nathan Woods hit a six and four fours in his 49 off 37 balls, but was one of three victims for Billinghurst (3-17) and there were wickets for Oliver Woods, Rob Bannister and Butt as Maestros came up short on 159-7.

The next match in the competition sees the Kalijeera Kings take on Hunter Hurricanes at Upminster Park on Wednesday, June 28, starting at 6pm.
