Exiles picked up their 3rd win of the season – with a superb 4 wicket win away at the pleasant environs of Sheen Common against new opposition Sheen Park.
On losing the toss, portents didn’t look good as a few early shots raced to the boundary, but the Exiles openers – Ansar and Masie both found breakthroughs, and the subsequent Exiles bowlers all mainly bowled excellently to restrict the home side to only 140 for 8 off their 35. Ansar returning 2 for 33 and skipper Bernard 2 for 11.
Ansar (49) and Keith (41) put on a fine 69 for the first wicket as Exiles started their chase in decent fashion before a regular flurry of wickets threatened to allow Sheen back into the match. However Andy remained solid and Masie provided a quick flourish to take the Exiles home.
This was a really good team performance and continues the good start to 2022. Next match is not expected to be until 12 June at Abbey Rec against Streatham & Marlborough.
