Exiles pinch narrow win at OMT..

Exiles won by 12 runs in an excellent game on Sunday.

Choosing to bat first, Exiles got off to a flier thanks in particular to Shahid Iqbal (37 off 23) with support from Bilal Musakhel (25 off 46) taking Exiles to 77 for 1 in the 15th over. However wickets then fell quickly and at 103 for 6 Exiles looked in danger of falling short of a par score, but Andy Wingfield (27) with support from most of the tail took the score to 189 all out in the last over.

An excellent spell of 2 for 20 off 7 from Yayha Khan checked OMTs progress in response and when the returning Jon Parker-Jones (3 for 12) took 3 quick wickets Exiles looked set for a reasonably routine win, only for a belligerent Simon Boardley with a rapid 54 not out for OMT nearly getting his side home.

Luckily Huss Quereshi picked up 2 wickets at the other end to seal an ultimately tense 12 run win for the Exiles.

As yet unconfirmed fixture for next Sunday but hopefully the club can find an away game somewhere.
