Exiles bake in Raynes Park sun…

Exiles returned to bogey-ground Raynes Park with a much-changed 10 man side on Sunday and were beaten by 8 wickets by WICC.

On batting first, in hot conditions, Exiles soon wilted to 45 for 5, only for an excellent rebuilding partnership of 101 between Mark Bradshaw (70no) and Will Kent (40) to help steer the total to 162 for 8 off the full 40 overs. 200 was probably closer to par.

In response, despite an early wicket from Phil Ling (1 for 19), WICC cruised home with over 6 overs unused, Johnny Aloysius (1 for 28) taking the Exiles only other wicket.

Agricola next up. Bigger than the Ashes.
