Ling masterclass in Exiles win..

Exiles picked up their first victory of 2023 with a fine 9 wicket victory against Riverbank Ramblers at Barn Elms.

Exiles critically won the toss and chose to bowl and after miserly spells from Naren and Masie it was Phil with 4 for 18 who really tore into the home sides batting line up on the inconsistent surface. With further wickets for Siyar and 2 for Ajmal, Riverside were dismissed for 86.

After the early loss of Ajmal, it was Keith (23no) and Yahya (a belligerent 47no) that took the Exiles home in excellent time.

A fine response after last week. A third successive new opposition next week – Karnataka at King Georges Playing Fields.
