Batter all at sea against the Exiles..

Exiles produced another very fine bowling display in beating Battersea Ironsides by 5 wickets on a hot day in Earlsfield.

Exiles elected to bowl despite the sweltering conditions and it soon seemed vindicated as Masie Musakhel took 4 for 26. The homesides number 5 then hit 49 before being dismissed by Yahya – who continued his recent excellent form with 3 for 2 to close the innings on 113.

Exiles wobbled early in reply, but a steady 32 from captain Shahid, contributions from Yahya and Hasan before a belligerent 29 not out from debutant Ishaq took the side home in less than 20 overs.

Ploughmans in Dulwich next week.
