Another narrow defeat…

Exiles were narrowly beaten by 11 runs by new opposition Millfields at Hilly Fields on Sunday.

Millfields elected to bat unsurprisingly and after a quiet start accelerated well to reach 198 for 6 from the 35 overs. Exiles bowling was reasonably solid, but a few misfields giving away a few extra runs ultimately proved crucial.

Ajmal (55) led the reply, supported by Shahid, Jibs and debutant Azhar (who all hit twenties) but it wasn’t quite enough.

On to Agricola at Haydons Road next week.
