Exiles succumb to the Railwaymen…

Exiles were beaten by 65 runs by Southern Railway & Kenley at King Georges Playing Fields on Sunday.

After winning the toss, and following a minutes silence for the Queen, Exiles looked to make inroads on choosing to bowl first on a very lush looking surface. Naren picked up a couple early – both bowled of course – but Kenley always batted aggressively and continued to attack, eventually posting 205 for 8 off 35 overs, with 2 wickets for Siyar, Phil and Bilal, as the pitch played better than it looked.

Exiles looked in the chase at 90 for 3, but the losses in quick succession of Bilal (36) and Andy seemingly ended the match as a contest, despite 21 from Siyar, as the pitch started showing increasing signs of variable bounce. Exiles all out for 140.

So a slightly disappointing performance after so many good ones. Final game is at Haydon’s Road next Sunday against King’s Road CC.
