WICC teach Exiles a lesson at Nursery…

WICC inflicted a 34 run defeat on the Exiles at Nursery Road on Sunday.

Batting first, WICC powered to 194 for 7 off their 35 overs, with their no 1 batsman scoring 98 and their no 3 58. Phil Chamberlain (2 for 20) and Marcin Zieleniewski (1 for 20) bowled economically at the start before the batsmen cut loose, though Bernard Leuvennink (3 for 40) took 3 wickets in four balls in attempt to halt the onslaught.

The Exiles were never up with the required rate in their reply and it was only a fine, late knock of 46 from Dominic Hodgson that saw the Exiles to 160, though Phil Ling – with 6 not out – scored his highest score in several seasons.

A return to Chiswick to face Agricola is up next for the Exiles.

Hodgson nearly dominates for Exiles…

Exiles lost by 20 runs to Whalers on Sunday.

Whalers elected to bat and scored 180 for 7 off their 35 overs, their number 4 scoring a superb 63 not out as the Exiles bowling became a touch ragged.

The Exiles reply seemed to be going nowhere at 78 for 5, despite a typically solid 35 from Will Kent at the top of the order, until a partnership of 57 between Dominic Hodgson (45) and Andy Wingfield (24) nearly got the Exiles back in the game, before the run-rate finally became too much and the key wickets were lost.

A slightly disappointing defeat for the Exiles, especially with 2 players – Jasper Searle and Ammar Akthar – being leant to the opposition for the day. And the less said about Phil Ling’s last ball leave the better.

WICC are up next week at Nursery Road.
