Exiles match against new opponents Bookham was rained off with the low scoring match evenly poised.
On a dodgy council track with sharply variable bounce, Bookham elected to bat and were soon in trouble thanks to another excellent spell by Yahya with 4 for 18.
But a counter attacking 63 off 39 from the home teams number 4 – including 38 off one 8 ball over – took the home side up to 130 all out, although with nearly 18 overs unused.
Exiles found the going tough in response, but fortified by extras in particular, looked well in the chase before the heavens opened.
Back to Wandsworth Park next Sunday.
