Exiles back on the winning trail…

Exiles beat Merton by 43 runs on Sunday.

Batting first, boundaries and runs in general were had to come by, with only 10 boundaries in the innings but the Exiles ground out 150 for 8 from the full 40 overs, thanks to a partnership of 68 for the 7th wicket between Hasan (40) and debutant Chris (25).

Exiles turned the screw early in the Merton innings with Naren’s 5 overs only going for 3 runs and the other debutant Alastair taking 3 for 11. Wickets were thereafter shared with 3 important ones for Shahid to ensure Merton didn’t get back into the game.
