Rain saves the Exiles!

Exiles escaped with an abandoned match at Ewell after a dramatic collapse looked to be dooming the side to its first defeat of 2024.

Exiles bowled and fielded generally well – with 3 wickets for Siyar as Ewell were restricted to 122 all out from their 35 overs on a slow pitch.

Exiles reply started slowly against accurate bowling, but was still well placed at 36 for 1 and then 42 for 2, before 7 wickets were lost for just 4 runs leaving the side on the brink of defeat at 46 for 9. Enter Mr Crossland to provide a few obligatory blocks before the rain came!

A lucky escape! Back to Chiswick next week to face the Whalers.
