9 man Exiles just miss out..

9 man Exiles were narrowly beaten by Whalers on Sunday. John Tither (65) and Will Kent (49) set the Exiles on their way to 173/5 from 35 overs; however, after an excellent spell by Naren Patel of 7-1-16-2 and with Whalers well behind the required rate, a belligerent 63 from 44 balls from the opposition number 4 turned the game, allowing Whalers to squeeze home by 2 wickets, with 2 balls remaining.

Next up is a trip to John Innes Rec. to play Merton.
