Exiles win thriller in Dulwich…

Exiles pulled off a fine run chase to secure a 3 wicket win against Ploughmans in Dulwich.

Exiles elected to bowl first, but Ploughmans built steadily with one of the openers striking a fine 94. Sami picked up a couple of wickets and Siyar 3 for 40 as Ploughmans closed on 193 for 6 from their 40 overs.

Exiles wobbled early in reply and had reached 81 for 5 before a superb partnership of 91 between the ever-dependable Hasan with 66 not out and Siyar – who knew!? – with 57 put the Exiles back in the game. And despite Siyar finally falling as well as Sami, it was the calm head of Hasan that took the Exiles over the line, with just over 2 overs left.

An excellent win from a losing position! Next up is Unabombers at Hayden’s Road.
