On the slopes of Cottenham Park, Exiles put in a very disappointing performance to lose to the Clapham Nomads by 5 wickets.
On losing the toss, Exiles swept to 42 without loss before captain John Tither (34) was caught at point. The pitch suddenly seemed to become unplayable as the rest of the Exiles batting subsided to 90 all out, with only Marcin Zieleniewski (10) and Johnny Aloysius (10) battling to double figures in addition to other opener Will Kent (13).
Exiles needed wickets quickly in response but in slightly less generous conditions they weren’t quite able to get enough of them – despite a fine spell of 3 for 16 from Zienleniewski, Nomads getting home 5 down with over 10 overs left.
Exiles aren’t currently in action next week, leaving a return to Cottenham Park in 2 weeks time against WICC as the next challenge.
