All-rounder Ling takes Exiles home..

Phil Ling scored a career best 27 not out to take the Exiles home by 4 wickets against Streatham & Marlborough.

Exiles lost a bad toss but bowled very well in sweltering conditions to restrict Streatham to 165 for 9 – with Andy taking 4 for 30 and Phil 3 for 13.

Keith (36) and Bernard (41) put on 79 for the first wicket in only 14 overs as Exiles looked set to cruise home, only for a ‘traditional’ collapse. However a partnership of 44 between Amil (25) and Phil took Exiles to the brink before another mini collapse, but the win was still secured by 4 wickets.

Back to back wins. Big game next week against the Nomads at Raynes Park.
