Exiles beat rain, then OMT..

After surviving heavy lunchtime rain, Exiles game at OMT started less than an hour late, with an adjusted 35 over format.

Drew Scott-Dawkins failed in his attempts to make 5 straight half centuries for the club – which has still never been achieved – but his 35 laid the platform for a decent score. Craig Williams (46) and John Tither (21) continued the run scoring before a late flourish between Simon Gundry (31 not out, and still unbeaten all season!) and Andy Wingfield (33) in partnership of 46 saw Exiles finish on an above-par 194 for 7.

The target always seemed too much for OMT and all 6 Exiles bowlers picked up wickets, Geoff Candy (2 for 15) taking his first for the club. OMT all out for 142 in the 34th over.

WICC at Abbey Rec next week.
