The Exiles batsmen were on record-breaking form as Nomads were beaten by 107 runs at Raynes Park.
Exiles batted first and amassed a club record 283 for 4 – beating the 280/8 against OMT in 2011 – with Parkinson hitting 141 off 107 balls – the highest individual score by 1, beating Tither’s 140 against Agricola in 2013 – and Leuvennink a 52 ball 81. Their partnership of 191 is Exiles highest for the second wicket.
Despite some aggressive intent from the Nomads batters, Exiles continued to chip away and take wickets with Akhtar (2 for 31) and Ling (2 for 36) both striking twice. Nomads survived the overs however, finishing on 176 for 9 from their 35. A fine victory for the Exiles.
Whalers at Chiswick next week.
