Exiles beaten in 2021 opener..

The 2021 cricket season started – in May! But Exiles were well beaten by new oppo Wimbledon United by 79 runs at Cottenham Park.

Wimbledon batted first but despite early wickets for debutant Satish and evergreen Naren, they made their way to 210 for 8 off their 40, with 2 wickets later for Gundry and Ling, and one for Wingfield. Exiles bowled reasonably well but were hindered by conceding 43 extras.

In reply, Exiles lost wickets regularly despite an excellent resolute 54 not out from Keith.

So an opening day defeat, but at least the season has started on time! On to Nursery Road next week against Southern Railway & Kenley CC.
