Wimbledon scorched..

Exiles beat Wimbledon United by 50 runs as the sun baked down on Cottenham Park.

In sweltering conditions and as is custom this season it seems, Exiles won the toss and batted first. Ansar (34) and Ajmal (18) put on 52 in 9 overs as the Exiles started well before a flurry of wickets saw Exiles stumble somewhat to 113 for 6.

Prasanth (55) in his first Exiles game of the season counter attacked, supported by Andy (31) in a partnership of 60. Yahya then thumped 2 late sixes to hoist the Exiles to an excellent 207 for 8 from 35 overs.

Yahya also struck with his first ball in the field, but Wimbledon still seemed well placed at 82 for 2, if a touch behind the rate. However Ajmal (4 for 17) then took wickets with regularity and with Andy also picking up a couple, Wimbledon were bowled out 50 short, as the Exiles took 8 catches.

A really good team performance and win. Southern Railway and Kenley away next week.
